    Default Track Setup ? @ Njba Thunder in the Channel

    I've been looking at the 1/2 Track & 1/4 MileTimes for the Race Simms posted over on his site in the 'Race Report' Section and the 1/2 Track Times look awfully Slow for the 1/4 Mile Times that were being run ... Were what's being posted as 1/2 track Times actually 1,000 ft. Times? That's what it looks like to me but, don't know for sure.

    I really want to thank all of the NJBA and the racers for allowing me to race with them. Really really first class organization. I would like to congratulate Bill lanier on his first win in three years of racing.

    Here is a heart felt Thank You to you all.

    There was an issue with the half track times. Some of my times slips were
    Correct and others had obviously wrOng numbers. Ets were legit but the half track numbers were bogus. One pass I ran a 4.24 and the next a 6.00 at 660 ft

    Best run MPH was 87.9 mph.

    Ill adjust the Mech tabs and add some angle to the ride plate. Should be able to run the 10 second bracket at lake ming. The ski was set up for safe consistant runs. I can definatly loosen it up bit.

    Chris,

    Would you mind filling me on the Timing System(s) as I asked originally? ... We've been 'Away A While' and the Timing System(s) have changed so I'm just trying to figure out how things are should we be able to finish what we're doing with the boat and 'get our act together' and come over to the NJBA this year.

    No matter what what the intermediate Times are, the ET's being Run in UBFJ are definately Impressive ... Guess I have my work cut out if we're going to be Competitive .......

    My Best,

    Jak

    was my post not helpful?

    last weekend there was an issue with the half track times being recorded. Some passes they were correct, other passes they were not. make sense?

    SO are you saying that some of the runs were correct and some were not? Or, are you saying that some run times were incorrect and some were not?
