Hi everybody

What's your opinion about the heads up competition we do that counts towards the drag racing championship points?

I personally feel this should rather fall away. Firstly because the faster guy will always take the win (unless something goes wrong), and secondly because then there will actually be time left for us to do heads up of our own (like Street2Strip style).

Thoughts?

They should be matching the cars up a little better, then headsup will work ok. Can't drop it since that is the essence of drag racing, going heads up against someone you think you can beat, which is where the matching should be done a bit better...

And the purpose build cars get screwed again :thumb: What will be left for the 10sec and lower cars do run for? Rather do away with this single run brackets setup, that is really a wast of time, as bracket racing are suppose to test your reaction as well as your consistancy. at least the headsup is balls to the wall, even on single runs. I really hope K can one day get back to racing the way it use to be, we might just see some interesting cars and old drivers making a come back again...

O and btw, if you get beaten, make your car faster, thats what racing is suppose to be about :thumb:

The Super eliminator is pointless, fastest car wins most of the time, drop it rather make qualifying till like 14:00 or 15:00 then have the street and MSA brackets

Well then I suppose the rest of the world is doing things wrong, it seems that drags in CT is then more about letting the guy with the slower car win :? Headsup is drags, brackets was only introduced to accomodate the slower cars to also stand a chance to win championships. Anyways, I think it should be left to the guys that actually still race, to decide, but for what its worth, don't get rid of headsup racing, rather work towards getting racing to be the way its suppose to be, with 2 fast cars going down the track.... at the same time :thumb:

There were many occassions where i was paired up with the faster 10 second cars, ie, tolla, ralph, luc, etc... 9/10 times it was single runs and i hated that. How am i as a racer suppose to put up a better time if i must chase after my shadow. I need a car to chase. Yes i would not beat them but this only improves my launching and driving styles. I say keep the heads up racing as the goal of drag racing is not to be consistant, its to go faster.

Here at Tarlton we have every or is it now every second Friday Race night.

R150-00 p/car and your in, after scrutenering and you have unlimited runs, open class,

I took my bantam 1300 up once, "my gat het gejeuk" had a coffee before reaching the traps though.

Make sure your are next to the guy you want to race in the que and there you go.

Attendance is becoming more than at a official race day, cause its fun. bringing a streetrace feeling to it.

Thought I'd let you guys know that there will be R500 allocated at each event for 1st place heads up.

The point is consistancy,not how fast your car is when it come to brackets!! Heads up yes,and that comp should only decide quickest car of the day!!
