Re: Who do you want to be paired up against at the track?

Go to the 4:37 mark. It shows the first bracket race we had and his very first bracket race ever, note that they had to show him how to stage (Irf will be doing the same lol) and how he left the tree first since this was a bracket race so he got the green light .70 before mine came on, that's because he had a 15.70 dial in to my 15.0 dial in. What I did is called sand bagging , I dialed in a little slower than what I knew my jeep was going to run, this way I knew I was going to catch him before the end but the trick is to win without going faster than my dial in, so once I cought up to him I just ease up on the gas and rode next to him with the nose of my jeep just sticking out in front of his to make sure mine crossed the finish line first. I could have run high 14s if I would have gone all out but that means I would have broke out, meaning I would have ran faster than my dial in and that's an automatic loss. It was too easy and it was a lesson he learned quick, now he's doing pretty well in the sand bagging business .
I usually don't like sand bagging but when I know someone else is going to sand bag me I play their game and most of the time they get screw up and end up loosing by either braking out or just simply loosing.
It might sound too easy to sand bag but is not as easy as it sounds as you have to keep a lot of things in mind and always keeping a visual with your opponent wether they are in front of you or coming fast behind you, not only that but you have to know your car very well to know you are not going to brake out or run too slow. The dashhawk helps me a lot because it gives me a lot of feedback on all the temps and once I see that I know pretty much what the jeep will be running taking in consideration also the current weather temp, humidity, wind direction and speed. Bracket racing is more of an art than just a race, you need to take tons of things in consideration. Prfesional bracket racing gets even more complex as you can bring electronics into the equation and those guys are really on the money with their dial ins and insane reaction times, that's a whole different level I can only dream of getting there some day.
Here's the video...
Joe and I race twice, the first race is about the 1:00 mark in a heads up race and the second one is the bracket at 4:37 mark.
Let me know if you want a more detailed explanation on bracket racing, this one was just brief .
