I just wondered if someone could tell me if these 660 foot number's are any good? The 1/4 mile was 14.34,horrible for what I got,but I know the 660 was a good run as far as no mistake,s.Here they are 60ft.2.322 660 ft.9.331,reaction time,.340.That could get addictive!

You're definitely right about that -- IT'S FUN!!

This is from the NHRA Rulebook:
THREE-AMBER STARTING SYSTEM: All three amber floodlights in a driver's lane flash simultaneously before the green light comes on. This is called a "pro start" system. Racers running in handicap categories get a countdown of one amber light at a time until the green light comes on. The "pro start" system runs with a .4-second difference between the amber and green lights. The handicap system runs with a .5-second difference between bulbs. Many non-national-event tracks still use a five-amber-light countdown for handicap racing.

So, you can see why I'm confused by the .340 number in your reaction time. ;)
