Bracket or Burnout???

Well, nopi is back commerce Ga next weekend and I was going to enter again, but I can decide on what to enter. I love killing tuner cars so I can’t miss out. This is a tuff one because the Burn out comp is tuff due to the fact that the crowd pics the winner and there all import lovers and an f250 isnt the crowds favorite, but it will boil some tires. On the other hand I don’t know anything about bracket racing or if my truck would be good at it. So, I have inserted my last time slips. The 15.1 is the first run of the night on my performance tune and the 14.1 is my 5th run and I was using my extreme tune. Any help would be appreciated.

Bracket racing has nothing to do with the vehicle. It's all about the driver. If you can keep your times consistant but not over your fastest you'll do good.

that is basically it there...bracket racing is about running consistantly...you have a "dial in" time which you set before your pass..you are trying to get as close to that time, without going faster than it (breaking out)..most of these races are won/lost at the light..inconsistant reaction times or 60' times will kill ya..

often times you'll be put against a grossly mismatched vehicle(either much faster or slower)...they will adjust the starting lights for each lane and the slower car will leave first...the amount of adjustment is the difference between the dial-ins of the two vehicles racing..IE: if you have a car with a 12.7 dial-in and his opponant dials-in at 14.3, the slower vehicle will get a 1.6 second "head start"..his starting light sequence will begin first..if both vehicles run their dial-ins they should cross the finish line at the same time..

whoever runs closest to their time, without going faster, wins...if a single driver runs faster he is disqualified..if both driver's run faster, then the driver who ran closest to his dial in wins...

it's alot of fun and just about anything can be run in this type of racing...a ton of money isn't needed to win races...

work on your reaction times..you had a .563(sleeping at the line?) and a .088...you may have had traction problems too..looks like you really picked it up after the 330...

Ive been in 3 burnout comps (solid burnout for 1min) and many 1/4 miles runs without studs. I just havent ever done bracket. Why would studs be more important in bracket racing then burning out higher temps and pressures are acheived during the burnout. Im gonna enter the bracket I will let yall know how I do

I was prob in 4wd and prob still spinning. I dont quite get it though cause im running 5mph faster then you on the 1/8 and its almost a 2.4. It seems like just at the 1/8 (maybe a little before) is when it really starts to pull.?.?

So bracket racing is more-less racing the clock not the other car...??? Right

Bracket racing is getting the closest to your dial in without going over.

Repeated WOT runs means you're on borrowed time w/o studs.

For the burnout - the tires smoke just as much at 30mph with EGT's in check as they do at 60-70mph with the EGT's through the roof
