.  Means I went  8.70. And that I can go 60s.  If I wanted to tune for conditions or ride more aggressive.  I am running in the crazy 8s class which is a 8.88 index so I have to cut gas to slow the bike down.. understand now ?

Good seeing you Steve. Bike is moving for sure.

Any day on a motorcycle like this that ends just needing parts and labor is a good day.

Thank you, I actually dug up a slip of 33 that I made in 4 days. 160.75mph    The tire looks like it never went down the track, the clutches look fine, The only thing I did was look but not adjust the chain and set the tire press once. I also put a fan on it to cool it down. This bike is the most fun and most consistent bike I've rode in 30 yrs of racing.

Yeah I get it.  Do you run in classes you're faster than most of the time or just when tuning?

 tuning?
.  Actually I didn't know was going to go 70 s until Saturday of the race . In testing was running strings of .85s etc which puts me right in the .88 class.   I actually never once touch the tune. Air fuel was at 12.3 on Sunday which slowed me to .90s. When I went .70 flat it was 13.2.   But I never once adjusted it . I'm going to put a dry shot on it before the end of the yr and try to go 30-40s..  I think I'm buying the bike and thinking of making a nos bike and try to be the first 7 sec king. I really think Its possible.

Not much involved, no port work, just pistons and 1 cam!   I ordered the dry shot today. Next week I should have an update of 8.4-8.55 @ 166 ish or more
