Drag Racing Results - spinning tires = crappy r/t?

last night i went to this really, really crappy track for the first time. in fact this track is so crappy there is about a .2 difference in E/T between the left and right lanes. lol, no joke. in the left lane my tires would spin so bad outta the hole that i lost about .2, even .3 a couple of times, on my E/T. anyway, the best light i cut the whole night was a .125 and i'm usually sub-.1. is it all psychological or could it have been that i was spinning so bad i wasn't tripping the beams as well as i could if i had traction.

if you spin, the your not going to go anywhere. If you get wheel spin then your launch will suck and most likely your whole run.

yes it can hurt your reaction time. reason being u have to come out of the beam to trip the r/t timer=).

Yep, if the inital hit is spinning that will affect how quickly you break through the beams, thus hurting your reaction time.
