Thanks. My launching needs work but this 6.52 is a 10.15 in the quarter. Not bad for 2 day at rhe track.
Actualy  it could be anywhere from a 9.90 to a 10.35, all depends on where your bikes power is strongest bottom half or top half, two years ago helped a friend do a Busa setup almost exactly like mine, at our local track he ran a 5.62 and at Bristol (1/4 mile) 8.78, he is a much better rider than I am, as I don't race bikes, and he,s half my age, and still fearless...........and most of all has more money to piss away than me........you are right on the launch, the harder you can get it to run 60 and 330 without standing up naturaly the quicker its going to ET..........one side benifit is all the experiance you will get doing the clutch :lol:
The older you get do you notice you start chickening out way before the bike does

I feel very fortunate to have an on-board compressor that keeps the air bottle full at all times.  One less thing to have to do.
Thats what i am gonna do once i get my bike back and gst ready to install the air ahifter..
Do you like how the compressor setup? I eill be in the 9s once all my work is done and i have my arm on.

I will go fast at fontana. I know its harder but that means more work and better results at other tracks.

So its all in his hands.
Changed out rear subframe for a aluminum on and a tiger tail.
A bunch of motor work. Flashed ecu. Lower temp switch so it come on earlier. T16 on front sprocket
6 over arm. This bike is gonna rip. After this setup is stable i am revalving myshock and doing a airsifter setup.
I am having a blast. Chris is a kickass guy and is the perfect cat for my bike. Its gonna pull well once he is done. I hope low a low et! . With practice of course. I need a sponsor for tires so i can do long as burnouts:)

You get that suspension dialed in and 60' down in the 1.40's and you'll be flyin' bro(and having Gaige go out to the track with you will be a big help). :thumb:Finally got off my ass the other day and finished hooking up my Cycle-Tek CO2 shifter,works great! :thumb:
