Ok Kyle here is how it goes.
Get to the track right when the gates open because usually that will give you enough time to get the Jeep inspected and then cooled down in the lot.
(When they call your class to the pits):
Drive up to the pits very easy and slowly to not raise the temps that much. When you arrive, pop the hood and let the Jeep cool down.
When your class is called to race:
1.) ESP Off
2.) Tow Haul on
3.) Since you are new to the racing scene do this. Put the Jeep in 3rd Gear and do the last shift into 4th when you have to.
How to stage properly:
At the top of the tree there are 2 rows of 2 yellow lights like this: ::[/COLOR]
When you see all 4 light up, you are staged correctly.
Stare at your side of the tree and DONT lose focus off of it.
Powerbrake to like 1200-1500 RPM's
Then you will see the first big yellow light light up, then the second and then the third. As soon as you see the 3rd yellow light, you GO!
Thats what I do and these are my R/T's:
Hope that helps and let me know if you have any other questions.
