Slips only. Maybe include Gtech, But designate them as such , then add a disclaimer that GTechs may not be right.

Even slips can be misleading without some sort of video evidence. The only concrete proof is video, but thats a hard standard for everyone to adhere too. Its going to boil down to trusting the individual submitting the time. I'm inclined to agree to track times only but im willing to put in gtech times with sort of disclaimer

Let'* stay a bit layed back here. Don't want it too complicated. Timeslip, video, 10 witnesses, DNA scan of the car to see if you really drove it, and lie detector test will make nobody will want to submit their times.

Ok, so I exaggerated, but do you see my point?

The more trusted the times are, the less petty bickering and contreversy there will be regarding them. I know currently there is only a handful of us running regular at the track and maybe only 20 or so have even been to a track but im sure in the future this will change, and I just want to have a good foundation in place when it does.

I'm ok with time slips and even gtech with disclaimer. Video is not absolute proof either as some tracks dont have a score tower (like mine for example). Everyone needs to look at it with an objective eye, no 2 tracks are the same but simillar mods yield simillar results?
Glad someone is working on it, Thanks guys.

I agree that we need a updated 1/4 mile page. I'm ok with gtech times noted.

Could be SC cars and NA or all cars listed together is ok too, but think it should be only for Bonneville times. Could include a seperate area for memebers other cars too if your feeling up to it.
