    So my days of the tuning board hail mary are coming to an end. I just bought a 2 lane BestTrack and Champ Timer that is arriving tomorrow. Looking to upgrade whatever is necessary to get smooth starts and consistent times. Any help appreciated.

    Thanks. Fellow member Jimmy & His 2 Kids introduced me to the idea of measuring bounce back on the tuning board. An extremely useful tool to gauge speed.

    Not gonna lie... being a tuning board warrior IS NOT FUN!!! LOL Can not WAIT to tune on a track!!!
    Well... guess I can't complain. The tuning board does help and without a track its a great tool if set up properly.
