Thanks guys, I’m leaving a bit softer this year, not after the hero slips but running the number and working on the light. This was a memorial race so just a TNT really but was some decent cash and hardware up for grabs. I did go one round, took out a no bar jap bike with a decent light.

Next round was a .05 red but ran a 10.41 on a .40 and forced a breakout but....

Sunday was at another track 5 hours away, was a Red Bull day . Had some decent lights, .002, .007, .017 and a red and one pizza delivery. Was just another test session but at the track where the 1st points race is this weekend. Lots of shite weather forecast so may not be a race.

Yesterday was the first time running 1/4 mile on the new engine setup.

My gearing is off I hit the limiter before the finish

I had fuel delivery problems and everything broke lose. (tank, exhaust ) this year I rev to 7k so it's alot harder on my home made shit haha.

I had to quit before eleminations in pro et bike because if all the problems

My carb started to puke fuel all over the place all the time and tryed to adjust the floater. I will be looking at it today.


I had one decent run at 11.3 at 197 kph. I hit the rev limiter before finish so I am fairly sure I can get in the 10s if I changed my gearing abit. My 1/8 time was almost 7.4 at that run and I have run 7.09 before in 1/8.

Not really a race, but I completed my third Iron Butt Rally Friday. I covered about 9,000 miles in 11 days and came in 43rd out of 102 starters and 71 finishers
