I looked on line for a good RT calculator and ran across this one. It isn't a racing tree but that's not really necessary to practice your RT anyway. This will help hone your focus and that's what's going to get you good lights anyway. I included one of my sets for you to beat and I slept on the third light, lol. Good luck, enjoy and I'll see you at the races.

Here's another one for all us John Force Wannabees

Here's another one that they give to fighter pilots, my first try was 19 seconds and my best was 21.671

That's cool, but it doesn't count down like a real tree does... And the yellow light never goes... I thought it would track downward so you could anticipate the green for a good start... My best was only .261.... :crying:

you got me!!!! my average was .203 i gotta keep praticing
Those were some of my best times and are only possible if I hold my mouth right and don't blink, lol. The fastest time I got was a .14 but I don't see many of those and they are usually followed by the quick click red light, lol.

I looked all over at the practice trees and tried a lot of them but I think it was suddenurge who put it best when he said " there is no way to calculate VRT (vehicle reaction times) and rollout (how deep you were staged and the distance to the trip beam when you take off) with the on line practice calculators".
Without having the proper VRT and rollout to punch in, there's really no way to know if a red light was actually just a really good light or not.
This RT calculator is good because it forces you to focus on a single light and that's what John Force and the rest of the boys have to do on race day. That Pro tree lights all the amber at once and you better be on the switch or it's back to the trailer. I posted up another good RT calculator that I missed before and it's harder and a little more interesting than the first one.

As you can see in the PDF, my startle reaction time of .133 was a lot better than the other RT's which means I have a lot of work to do on my RT's. Ideally you would want them all to match. Then of course there is the one where I was caught ordering pizza instead of pressing the gas, lol.

pretty consistent......but lacking. wish it counted down like a tree. lol
When you can get consistant like that, you can cheat up a little or stage deep to take up some slack.

Sprint runners would leave you in the blocks, they take off about .15 seconds after the gun. average is between .2 and .25 so you are at the good end of average.
