I like them! Thumbs Up


EDIT: This dictionary would also be good for the SSR7 section. Is there a possibility to create a direct link instead of a new regular thread?

Suggestion as a v5 edit. I have a few terms that may be included:

Ghost Launching: A tactic used to launch as you are transparent to make your launch smoother. Generally frowned upon. Ex: "Stop ghost launching!"

Pull: When your car catches up to your opponent very rapidly after your launch. Ex: "Nice 3rd gear pull."

Shift Lag: Delay between your shifts if your car is geared wrong. Usually fixed by transmission tweaks. Ex: "I had shift lag, line up again."

Run That Back: After a good race or a bad launch, someone may say to "Run that back." or to re-race.
