All comes down to personal interpretation. Fenix damn near cut a freaking perfect light.
Well it sure turned into a chase is a race.

You cam back and replied some common sense about leaving on the third light of the tree to try and sound smart..
So first you say I brought up drag strip lights.. I prove that wrong (it was you) and now it's "I brought up the drag strip" lol. You knew exactly what the point was and you keep dancing around it. You do not always go off a tree at the drag stip. Yes I brought up the drag strip. It does not change the outcome...
2. So why does the suspension unload? Usually because you mash it and start to let off the brake lol. Car moved before the light was on. In a street race when the car moves and the light is not lite that is a JUMP and you loose.. Everyone understands this, but you..
He anticipated that the light was coming on because the guy brought the light up and he took off. If the light would not have been turned on when he took off he would have looked like a dumbass..
3. You keep trying to make this point, but it's Ford and Chevy guys in here all arguing the same fact. I don't think most give a **** that he had the faster car. The point is he jumps. Try to keep up.
Actually it's not back tracking.....it's reiterating.
Still no proof of a jump. The car has to roll for a jump. The suspension can move before the car moves....besides it's not unloading. It's loading. I've seen the the rear end of many cars moving when the suspension gets loaded.
The point was he didn't jump. Jp's vids proved that. It's ******* street racing man...sometimes reaction are not the same do to not hearing beeps. ...funktified beeps....not seeing the count.....auto trans downshifts. Lots of ****. I seen nothing there that shows he's the blatant jumper you guys are trying to say. I mean **** it's not like automach where he jumps and lets out early. The races posted are all races that played out with acceptable results.

I'm not you guys are.....you can't stand tgat he flat drug the **** out if a coyote. do you cause bs. Fact is he coulda gave the coyote the hit and still drove around him.
Personally i think the car needs to roll. Some cars get separation in the fenderwell some can squat before the car ever moves. That doesn't mean a jump. The angle of that recording can't prove ****.
Now he was playing with fire there.....but that light is as perfect as it gets.

So are you saying these turbo cars that bump in but are still rocking a little are all losing?
I've seen that happen lots of times.
NO BODY WINS!
