Beckman explained, “The NHRA has a stage lock beam more designed for the Super Comp and Super Gas cars with a trans-brake for when they deck the throttle, sometimes those cars will back up a half-inch. It’s designed to keep that from causing a red-light. A red-light happens when the stage beam reestablishes before the green light comes on.”

The local track manager talked to Pual, formally of TSI. Paul said there is an option for STAGE LOCK with the TS timing systemI, but only 3 tracks in USA have it. Our track does not. He also said while it does help with a car that rocks when applying the brake and coming up on the 2 step, it causes other issues that make it not as desirable as they thought it would be. Also it cost $1200 to add it and the track system has to be sent back to modify it.

At least I know my problem was not anything to do with the track equipment.

Why would switching to the body setting the beams be better than it is now???
My T/S car has a 3" high, 45" nose, my no box car has zero body anywhere near the lights.
Why would it matter at all. All pro cars have the same rules, so there's no advantage or disadvantage.
A dial in class doesn't care about getting a few thou free ET.

Just leave it alone, we leave off the tire, we finish off the body or tire, KISS, why change it??
