What is a pro tree in drag racing?

The first type which is mainly used by the NHRA Pro drag racing is called the Pro Tree. The Pro Tree is when all three amber lights flash simultaneously followed four-tenths of a second later by the green light ( green is when you gas the vehicle forward).

Keeping this in consideration, how does the tree work in drag racing?

Modern drag races are started electronically by a system known as a Christmas tree. The "Standard" tree will light up each large amber light consecutively with a . 500 second delay in between them, then followed by the green light after another . 500 second delay.

Similarly, what is a perfect light in drag racing? Since there is a half-second (or . 500 seconds) delay until the green light comes on, a . 500 reaction time is perfect.

Similarly, you may ask, what is a good reaction time on a pro tree?

500 reaction time is perfect on the sportsman tree and . 400 is perfect on the pro tree.

How does CrossTalk work in drag racing?

The new option named "CrossTalk" is being used in bracket racing, electronics (delay box) classes that use the full tree and handicapped dial ins. This feature has the potential to go nationwide in 2004. With this option, the amber lights will be focused directly at the driver in his/her lane.
