Say what????? If you lost way too many on a breakout? Judge the stripe? Holding? Figure out your number and how to be consistent. ET racing is racing your own demons, not the other guy.

Bottom line: games are only played when you fxxk up or know your pass is fxxked up. If you run your number and cut a light then there isn't any games. This isn't the board game CLUE. There is nothing to figure out, except your own shxt.

Wait until you can judge what your bike is going to do...................then you'll go championships. Sorry, but what fun is this STRIPE game you are playing?

But I mostly run this 7.2 Harley bracket so I don't need to change much, I just need to run 7.2 consistent.

I do like to set some new ET pb so i Will be trying to get into 6s next weekend at a test night

Time slip from the run. I might be able to get into 6s if I get my start dialed in better

You’ll be well into the 6s if you can get to a 1.50 60’ and you make more than enough power to get there.
