There is no RT. It starts recording when you romp the loud pedal.

Oops. You can put it in TREE mode and it'll simulate 2 different styles of track lights for you. I forgot about that. Then it records RT for you. Standard dragstrip mode does not. They leave it that way so you can run the GTECH at the track for comparison.

But when you're all said and done, R/T isn't included in the 1/4 right? They are seperate times right? If i'm wrong i'd love a nice narrative by someone on how 1/4 times work exactly... That 1/4 mile tree game was fun too for the R/T..

I haven't played around with mine that much. I'm still working with it mostly for hp and tq numbers. I have a pretty good idea on my times already

As I get more familiar with it, I can let you guys know.

Well in bracket racing the reaction time is included in the total time ie a reaction time of 1 sec combined with 14 sec travel time would equal 15 sec. with that said I dont no anything about the gtech and whether or not it is included in the the its total time?

All the times on the Gtech are listed seperately, but on the same screen. You can add in the R/T if you want.
