Or nah? Index or fastest ET are the only ways to have a good race for racers and fans?
From a pure fan point of view....

First to the line is the best racing. Fastest ET is a time trial not a race.

Reaction time, hitting your gears/ stages is the skill aspect to me in drag racing

This is the same whether you run 12's or 7's

What about handicapping? you know like a head start for the slower?

First: this evens the playing field for all budgets.

Second: Watching someone get ran down is fun as hell for the fans and really displays how fast some of these trucks really are.

And it wont hurt the the advancement really, guys with the money will still build the super fast trucks because its the Tim The Tool Man Taylor mentality.

All wrenchers have that, I would still want a 7's truck while screaming down the track in the budget limited tens.
