O.K. I have had it, I ve asked over and over and it must be a big secret, What do you all set your delay box at if your releasing at first yellow after staged of course, or do you release at first yellow? Car leaves hard and straight but I'm up and down with reaction times.

I always leave on the 1st flash, and all my buddies do also.

^^^^What he said. I'll give you an example, 2350lb car with me in it, 1550 hp, 1.01 sixty, delay is 10.85 in my box. My dragster 1850lbs 1300hp 11.10 in the box. The lighter your car the more you put in the box, typically the heavier your car the lower the number. If you're in that 2900lb range, with lets say around 1000hp, a good place to start would be around 10.30 in your box. Hit the tree couple times and adjust from there. With 10.30 in your box you hit the tree couple times and you're around .030 reaction time, pull another 20 out of the box. If you're red by .020 add 30 to your box. Hope this helps ya.:)

I run 1.135 to 1.145 in my cuurent set up. With your combination I would start with 1.080 as a reference point, make a few hits with that setting until you get consistent. Then start making adjustments to the box. I would not make any changes to the box until you can get conistent RTs, does not matter if they are .600 or - .450 red, make sure they are consistent.

I would start anywhere from 1.080-1.098. In my dads Super gas car 2600lbs i run around 1.098 depending on how I'm hitting the street. In my Falcon which is a Super Street 3350lbs car I run 1.068. Go to a Test n tune and Just start somewhere. I would pick a number and make a bunch off hits that are consistent before changing anything (doesn;t matter if they are good or bad). Once you get 5 reation time that are consistent then change the delay to make that reation time good.

1010 is a good starting point. It all depends on how quick you get off the button. What type of button are you using? Do you have one you can adjust? Is the button consistent in its time from release to when it engages? What are your reaction times and how much to they vary?

To be consistent, its best to leave against the converter.
