Stand alone would be the easiest route. If you have the voltage values for the stock sensor I could tell you how far off it would be, but beyond that you'd be on your own.

Awesome update and nice job on a new record!!

The salt seems to scary for my pussy self to run on, I've heard from a few other people that it can be a very humbling experience like you said, but great you got a record out of it and a great experience.

Dude, it's completely nuts at first, but you get acclimated to it pretty quick (as far as being 'scary'), but the humbling part is no joke! Even with all that it is still a good time, and you get into the competitive groove pretty quick... you just have to adjust your expectations and throw out all that pavement-based go fast knowledge... it just doesn't work out there! :)

Put it on your bucket list though... 200mph out on the salt is a wwwhhhooooooooooollle lot different than asphalt :).

Good stuff dude. Dudes like me may never make it out there (mecca for any race head) so i gotta live vicariously! And my bucket list has become the size of a grain silo. But yea speaking of setup changes - did ya do any suspension changes for that terrain? What tires do they run out there? Congrats!

Yup- MS3Pro FTW! The new bike will be sporting the MS3Pro EVO, for sure. There were a surprising amount of 'Squirters out there, in all sorts of applications. :)

Tires are a hot button issue for bikes if you want to tech over 200mph. Basically any ZR rated tire is good up to 199 in the SCTA's eyes, but they have to be 'race' tires for over 200mph. They define a race tire as anything the manufacturer calls a race tire, but each tech guy seems to have his own opinion... it's really a PITA honestly. Some guys were running race rain tires, and others slicks, and others street tires.... it's anyone's guess what works the best. But for the really fast stuff (say over 230mph), slicks are probably the most resistant to tire chunking/shredding.

Suspension is completely backwards out there. You want it low in the rear, with as much rake as you can manage. Steering damper cranked up, front up as high as you can to get the weight on the back tire. Take the comp damping out of the rear and wind the rebound in as much as you can manage (again, trying to keep weight on the rear). Erin Sills was trapping in the low 200's on a naturally aspirated S1000RR out there, and she has 80lbs of lead shot in the swingarm! Light bikes with a lot of power and aggressive anti-wheelie geometry don't do well out there at all.

Hey there! Good to see you back around! I blame you for getting into this land-speed nonsense to begin with... what with your cool gen 2 antics you posted in years past. I think I have a pretty nasty case of salt fever actually, but luckily i fell in with a local that has the means to get my poor-ass out to the races in exchange for tuning and mechanical work.

Bumped into Guthrie in impound at Speed Week and mentioned you... it really is a small world. :)
