    I thought the "winner" was the first across the finish line, not the lowest ET.

    in a drag race, Lit did lose. He started out being a couple of tenths behind with a slower R/T and almost reeled the GTR in at the end. If there was no time slip involved, the GTR did indeed win the race down the 1320. But, they were not racing on the who's first principal down the track but comparing timeslips. In that compare, Lit's V comes out on top.

    Now, if I was running against the Veyron and they fubared the launch, that video would not be popular on the old YouTube comment channel. Waiting for the Bugatti to tip the hat before launching was a good move otherwise we would have videos circulating about a modified GTR spanking a Veyron and that is not what anyone would want. I would also note that it was likely the owner's first time on the quarter mile with a tree. With practice, that would easily do 9's and there was a passenger. How many of us cut our best time ever on the first time out?

    Yes, my brother's GTR crossed first against me; we both root for each other and couldn't care less about that. He was the "camera car" for my 10-second run. The fact that it turned out to be an awesome race is just a bonus.

    ----------

    And here's the first race; the Bugatti didn't go and this is the reason my brother "waited" on the second run.

    Heavy hit it spot on. In a true heads up race Lit would have lost. I imagine this was just a test & tune event and most drivers just go by et for bragging rights. That being said, Im surprised Motor trend considered it a "win".

    I don't think so. He won that race before he even moved. His brother red lighted. That's an instant loss. His reaction time was a NEGATIVE .007 seconds.

    Your looking at the wrong time slip. His r/t was .081

    That was my r/t from a different run, one of my 11.0X runs, before getting the 10.7.

    I scanned the first few responses on that MT page before I started wondering why I was reading them. Just internet goobers at work.

    congrats on the MT link.

    and showing the world what a real car that folks can buy and drive can do.

    I noticed, and took down the image to discontinue the confusion.

    All in all, bottom line, Lit had an AWESOME run smashing the 11 second barrier and got a timeslip besting his brother's GTR that had been beating him handily prior to the Stage II build. Of that, there is no confusion
