Very nice launch. You turned your headlights on a split second before the launch. Distracted??? Your car is a killer!!

Yes thats BoostedGT from 1320 vids. Lights were to indicate ready. There was a no jump or your out rule. As soon as his arm went up the light was lit. I screwed up and was trying not to jump. Oh well it was a bad ass vent anyway.

Heres another angle.

Looks like from that angle on a clean leave you would have had him covered.
