Keep doing what you’re doing. You’ll be well into the nines. Times slips don’t lie. Nice work, keep after it.

Agreed. You can be shifting 300-400 RPM too soon on one or two shifts and bye bye 9 second slip.

The difference between me shifting at 7000 and 7400 for more than one shift costs me about 2 tenths on my setup. Every detail matters.

Yea there is no doubt I'm shifting early after seeing the logs, still more power left on the table in 2nd and 3rd for sure

Rain, rain and more rain lately. Everyone has been canceling. Had some sub 800’ air Sunday for 1/4, but it rained. Last race of the year Saturday. Looks to be 54* and windy, we’ll take it. Tied for trophy bike points so we’ll see how it goes. Going to toss max into jr and trophy bike with me. Maybe a Halloween gamblers race at the end of the month depending on the weather. Looks to be crazy weather everywhere in the states. Amra cancelled twice in Kentucky, hopefully they get the Rockingham race in.
