First time out yesterday, tnt at Humboldt county drag strip for the Iowa Hogs Nostalgia all bike race. Unfortunately, we won’t be racing today. Max made 3 passes, 2 Boggs and a wheelie. Then we went for it, 5700rpm whack at the tree and it worked fxxking awesome. 1.69 7.20 @ 97 in 3800DA air.

Next pass he spun, but went 7.50 at 97mph. We’ll get the wheel speed under control and she’s going to be a consistent rocket ship soon. Lots of bikes racing today! Have a great weekend

For fun, does anyone know the formula to correct the et to an 800’ DA?

Ran at Cecil today, my 2nd time running a bike in the 1/4. 3 passes in the 11.40s and 2 in the 11.50s. Best mph 118 and change. Still gotta get the launch down, cutting slow 1.8 and 1.9 60 foots. Need a diff seat to keep me on the bike and a regear to keep me off the limiter in 4th or shifting into 5th at the end.

Yeah, that seat doesn't look like it will keep you on very well. Are you going to Cecil County next month for the AHDRA event? Looks like you might need to fit a chain guard to pass tech

Yeah, it’s pretty bad lol. I’m planning on going to Cecil next month but for a test and tune. I’m just a casual test and tune goer. I definitely want to get to an AMDRA event one time to watch, never been.
