reducing rollout ideas
My wife and I have taken a liking to index racing and it seems to be working well for us so far. We have two first place finishes, one second place, and one fourth place over the last two times we have done it. There is a problem though that I need to address if I want to keep doing this.
No matter what I do, I can't get better reaction times than .670-.690 with .5 being perfect. It is a pro tree so I can't launch any earlier. I don't think it's a driver error unless i'm just slow. Either way, I'm trying to reduce the vehicle rollout or do something that will allow the reaction time to get better. I am already practicing so don't say that lol.
The only thing I know to do is go with shorter tires 25 inch or 24 inch instead of 26 or working on improving my 60 foot by doing 4:30 gears instead of 3.73's.
I can't seem to find 25 inch tall tires though. My mods are below. I'm welcome to any suggestions. Getting my time in the .580 range would make me happy. My index is 8.50 (1/8th) so no one is cutting perfect lights. The cars just aren't fast enough.
Mods are in my signature. I'm running 165/85/15 tires now. If anyone knows where to get decent priced 25 inch tall tires that aren't drastically wider, I would appreciate the help.
