DAMNNNN!!! If you wouldn't have hit the rev limiter on the 2-3 shift (could have been tire slippage too) you would have hit the 10, and I would be cutting a check for $1000!!! Please. Take my money Rob!!!

What were your 60 fts? Have you tried using the parking brake? Practice makes perfect. Also... try leaving on the last Amber. With those trap speeds you'll get there easily.

Chris.

Dang James, you beat me to it.
To make a long story short, I only got three runs. The third run, I missed second gear, so I just rolled easy for the rest of the run. James and I were going to run each other, until half the track and the return road got oiled down. That ended the races for the night. I sat on the light because it wasn't bracket racing, and I was thinking more about good launch.

He's going at it again next saturday.. I'm forcing him or I'll take it and run it

As far as the track condition, it's crap. ZERO VHT, hardly any track prep. if this was a good track, he'd be well into the 10s by now.

I dont have a timeslip. But i i have seen timeslips on gixxer.com saying 10.9. I believe it though, these bikes are insanely quick. I know a stock busa does it 9.9-10. I saw it on superbikes the show. It was stock.

Like James said, they could be better. I think slicks were hooking ok, but the guys running street tires were spinning all over the place.

Man, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

I tweaked a camber arm a couple weeks ago, so I didn't think I would have it ready to race again. This Saturday will be my last chance, and with the amount of cars running, i'll be lucky to get 4 passes.

I raced a busa a couple weeks ago. He ran 10.28. I better rider i'm sure could hit 9's.
