Back then you could not change the dial, yet I could run the dial every round, if need be. 1st round, I was about 5 under, ride the brakes, and take the win. 2nd round about on the dial, and as I was ahead, because of a reaction advantage of .05-.08 on the class, which is another story, and I could match closer than that. 3rd round go to Nitrous 100 ft from the finish line, 4th 200, and 5th 300ft which is about half track on the eighth.
Caused trouble, as they knew I was not a good enough driver, and did not have good enough equipment, to do what I did. Never have been, best driver, and never will have best equipment. Bracket racing is problem solving, and back then I could think better, when younger.
MoKan has been a though track to dial on, so how was it done?
I did not think a rail could do it, as they are light and fast, and therefore have to have a tall gear.
A door car can have a low gear, which causes the trans ratio spread to close up, and act like close ratio. Less rpm change during a run, means more consistent.
Rail drivers try to do the same thing with power slip trans. However with the tall gear, they do not slip the same.
If the setup was to skim the tires, it may have worked. Skim 100ft skim 50ft, same ET. Here is how.
Skim 100ft then hook, the hit is harder, but later, and 50ft, sooner but softer, as the rpm is lower. Both ET may come out the same, even though every other number on the time slip is different. The skim may be the same out of the stage beams, which means the same start.
Here we go again, spin for the win, as per previous post.
