which do you prefer and why ? i liked the full tree until i started going to the local track where everyone seems to prefer the pro tree. the full tree gives me way too much time to start thinking and i screw up more. not that im cutting a lot of great lights, it just seems to take an eternity waiting on all three lights.

I liked a full tree because most of my racing was bracket oriented and I was more consistant with the full tree.

I prefer the full tree because that's what I've always run. I may do some racing next year with a pro tree.

SMOKEmUP has a practice tree in the games section. That's what brought me here a long time ago and it's turned out to be my favorite site.

It doesn't matter to me, I suck at both of them. That's just one more reason why I gave the keys to my son. Crying or Very sad

Never ran a pro tree. I can do pretty decent on a sportsman tree after a few passes to get back into it. Might have to look into the practice tree like Jeep does Very Happy . Gotta help. Clay

I prefer the full tree primarily because that is the only thing I have ever run. However, on a few test and tune sessions I ran the pro tree only because the people at the tower thought my comp dragster was a super comp. Somewhat irritating.

Clay,
Using the sportsman practice tree keeps me in a routine. I have a tendency to try to anticipate the 3rd bulb instead of waiting for it.
Using SMOKE's tree keeps me honest.
I've tried the pro tree but it kicks in before I can move the mouse to the proper location.
I've never run a pro tree before but next year I might try a heads up class that uses the pro tree. It's an 11.5 real street outlaw class.

pardon me,if i'm saying something that everyone already knows...the practice tree will work if you press down on the mouse on the go button...when the bulbs come down on the full tree or the pro tree,let off of the mouse ,like a trans brake button...your r/t will be a lot faster.
