I had a friend who was burning the ground straps off his plugs too. His was a bad ring seal, is it all cylinders? Or just specific ones burning the ground? Also I guess having alot of spray and fuel, and not bringing in your timing fast enough can cause that too. Anyway good luck.

Its random and a leak down was done to ensure the motor was good for 2 stages. All is healthy.

More common is the intensely butthurt Ford owners.

Be a great argument if I was a ford owner. Actually, it wouldn't be, because the evidence is pretty clear. He jumped on the GT500.

He jumped on this 5.0L. 32 seconds in, his car is squatting before the light ever came on.


He jumps at 2.5 on three different cars in this one...

Frame by frame it, his car is moving right before the light. Would be a red light on any track.

Because the black car doesn't have a history of it. Black car gets a red light and a loss too.

Edit:
Slow the video to .25 speed, really clear then.

A red light is a red light, even the douchebags on pinks recognize that. No mention of the 4 other examples? Guess he has to cheat in order to beat a ford.

I think everyone is guilty of "red lighting" once or twice in a flash light race. Always try to gauge it and time the flashlight dude.

IMO LOTB is a good dude. I don't fault him for trying to cut a good "light". NBD

I do agree that a jump is a loss.

Once is an accident, five times is a pattern.

Moving just before the light is what you better do on a dragstrip.......there is a thing called roll out.

Seems as tho he give those fords plenty of time to catch him. To be honest all the hits were close. The most blatant being the black mustang.

Jumping = loss. Doesn't matter if he "gave them time", you jump the count ANY and you lose. The black mustang was just as bad.

Brake lights still on with the light on is good enough. The biggest thing making him look lime a jump was the other car leaving late.

Seems as tho you will do or say anything to shuffle the furd the w.

The video with the light was definitely a jump IMO. He jumped and the other guy was slow as **** so it looked worse then it was, but still a jump either way.. Win would go to the black car.

So at the track I can go early as long as I slightly hold the brake down to keep light on right? Lol I'm sure no one would have a problem with that...
