For example, .015 slower 60 ft. might equal .05 slower ET.
In my opinion, it depends on the type of racing. Are you running wide open? Then yes, I agree your et loss will multiply going down the track. If 60' slows .015, then I would expect my 1320 et to slow about .03.
But if I'm on the stop, my car is closer to a 1:1 ratio. Example, if I slow .01 to 60', then I will be about .01 slow to 1320. I feel the throttle stop kinda resets the run.
