it's estimated time subtracted by actual run time multiplied by ten.

I'd suggest first browsing the wiki and then coming back here with specific questions. I doubt anyone is going to recreate the very general information that you are asking for and is already available elsewhere.

The chalkers have offered more information to those of us on the forum that they didn't have to give out than you would ever dream of. There are many of of us who would be sitting at home with no idea what to do for our events if it weren't for the information they have given us. Going to the wiki is easily the best place to start with any event and advice that basically anyone on the forum would give. Disrespecting chalker7 instead of making the effort to read last years thread and the wiki isn't going to get you anywhere.
tl;dr stop being lazy and disrespectful and make an effort to find out information instead of asking general questions

Yes. Lighter cars are better. Because we can only use one mousetrap, the speed on the cars is going to be slow.
