Have to throw Dynatec props. Ignition fried after burnout last race... Bought a new one and installed it along with an Accel Super Coil. She's right now.... Shipped my dead one off to Dynatec. They tested it and found it failed. They are shipping me a free replacement. Big props for standing behind their products.

Wrapped up the 2019 PMRA Real Street Vtwin Season. Locked in the point series and won the championship. Finally went rounds in Super gas. Was able to knock out this years points champ and last year champ in round 1 and 2, and went onto the SG finals. Broke out with a 9.80 but it was a dman close race! It was a great season and the real street class has huge growth coming in 2020. We were approached by various people the past few races who have come down to check it out, and are building bikes to compete next year. Things are looking real good!

I'm hear now thinking about winter rebuild and modifications, what to improve on, what to change, what will be the most bang for the buck improvement over what I already have.
The bike has performed phenomenally all year, and just kept surprising me. I became more in sync with the bike every pass, trying to go out each time, do the same thing every pass, but just a little better and it has been working well.
Broke my first 1.3 60ft this weekend in super gas, and ran a 9.666 and a 9.68 PB in Real street. I was able to pull off a 3.88 330ft, havent been able to get it that low again yet, but that will be a goal for next season is consistent 1.3s and > 3.8s. Best 1/8 on the season was a 6.08 at 115mph, that goal will be 5.8s next year. For such a short wheel base bike at 61.25" strapped I cant complain 1 bit about the progress we have made this season on it. Looking forward to setting the bar high next year!

Last race of the year, out in the first round. Had him on the tree and took to much of the stripe. Only the second time out on the street bike but pretty happy. The tuning adjustments seem to be much different than I’m used to. Congrats to Mat on the Championship, GREAT job riding and chipping away at it. Smart racing. Nice work cyco, I know how tuff it is racing the metrics, couple more rounds here and there.... I’ve always said races are won in the garage, gotta go to the track to get the trophies. Time to get back to work. Where are we losing and how am I going to address it? Post up what you’re thinking and keep us updated. Me, I’m going to work on the 60.

Looking at running some different cams and going to be running new pistons next season. I am currently running .300 domes shaved down to my desired CR, thinking I'll go to full .500s and then I'll have them cut down locally to my specs once I've measured out everything. I could go 8" longer wheelbase but the bike is so much fun to ride short how it is, I think I'll stay at my current wheelbase and see how far I can push it. Going to modify my hammer manifold to be S&S 2 bolt mount so I can play around with spacers with my mikuni. Aside from that will be doing maintenance on everything, even kicking around the idea of sending my heads to GB and have him see what he can do, maybe some titanium valves, either way they need to be freshened up. Would like to pick up 10 more mph in the 1/8 and 1/4, bike is hooking up and launching really well....more power!
