I've already got my Friday day off approved and drag wheels and tires on the way. The only concern and unknown is the weather? Snow, salt and ash means we'll see what kinda 60' I can cut with Subaru's Symetrical AWD...............in my Outback Otherwise, Spicey and I will be there

EDISKRAD EHT Even though I wont be there, I think a pro tree is better for the driveshaft prize. It puts everyone more on the same level IMO. The seasoned racers typically have their 'go time' down pretty good on a full light.

Daniel Linnett Pro Tree is the way to go for the Reaction time. Cutting a .00x light on full tree is alot easier. Reacting to the lights will make it more fun in my opinion lol

Brians Goat I voted pro tree as well, mainly because I have never run one. I also think it will level the field as alot of us have never run a pro tree being the amateur's that we are!!!!
01-12-2013 04:01 PM
Non-Sponsor-Engineering I vote pro tree,anyone who redlights is pissed and has a bad day,anyone that sleeps is kicking there self becuase they were asleep but its not as bad...There is a reason all your amature events are Pro tree,its been that way for years

I disagree if this was the case why buy the box? This event is catered to the amature not some one serious enuff to have a box in there car,we never allowed a box but its never been an issue as your the first in 5 years to have a box. I hope you can understand the spirit of the event and if it is as you say it shouldnt hinder you,me on the other hand lol

Because you can't use electronics to win the prize? Is that why your saying the rules suck?

Rockit_GTO I run both, but definitely prefer a full tree if R/T is on the line.
