    I just read the rules for bracket racing and wonder if I'm missing something.

    What purpose does it serve to have a head start equal to the difference between the dial-ins, since winner is based on ET and dial-in?

    Also, I assume reaction time has no effect on bracket racing?

    Am I missing something?

    oh reaction time does,... you can get one that sleeps at the light, I beat a Demon at the Modern hemi shootout series back in February in bracket racing, my dial in was 13.1 and his was 10.25..

    my reaction time was a .124 his was a .445 caught him sleeping at the light,. we both crossed the finish even. he broke out at a 10.24. i turned a 13.2 I won.

    So the reaction time gets added to the ET?
    In other words he had an ET of 10.24 + an RT of .445 causing him to be over his dial in by 0.44 while you were closer to your dial in with only 0.34.

    I hope that's how it works or I'm in trouble here.:mad:

    When you dial in your ET, like his was a 10.25, that means you can’t run faster than that. He ran a 10.24, which means he broke out. So he shouldn’t have set his dial in so low. The following round I ran against another Demon, but his dial in was a 10.50. He actually ran me down and pass me.....then was able to slow down after he passed me and not break out. Of course his reaction time was real close to mine, which on that round was a .150.
