It’s been a couple of months or more since I been out racing and knew I am probably rusty but just wanted to go out not so much for time as the track really sucks on wed nights as they don’t prep it…..but really just go out and play.
Last year around this time I wasn’t that competitive but have done some practicing since then as some of you know already. So, I wanted to show my new skills out there. First though I want to say I was trying out what someone else said on this thread how they got better times launching at low RPMs so that’s all I did to test to see how it goes.
Well, first race was against another guy on a 05 10R riding it for his buddy. He normally races Wed. nights all the time on a ZX6. Mods on the 10R slammed as low as it can go 16T gearing. I can tell by how he was talking telling me he was going to show his buddy how to ride it that he probably thought he could beat me.
Result— left him right from the start..not even close. It was just a 10.6 to his 10.9s so I knew at that point the rust was there but the conditions were horrible and like I said I wasn’t there for time but to just play. So 1 down
Next Race a stock Hayabusa pulls up to me as he wanted to run. I didn’t know this guy but had a felling this was going to be even easier.
Result- Totally wasted him…..10.3s to his 10.9s…yeah a hayabusa doing 10.9s…he needs to get out more.
Next race. An 05 Gix 1k. I knew this guy ran on his last race a 10.27s as he showed it to me after my busa race. So, when It came down for my 3rd race he pulled up to me and said lets run. Now I know this light weight guy must have thought he was going to win this one. I didn’t tell him I did 10.07s months ago so I knew it might be competitive.
Result- Came up immediately in a bad wheelie…but never saw the gixxer. Seems he said he did too and once we were off I was in front and stood there. Bad times but at least the guy knew his bike wasn’t so powerful as to catch me. Times 10.4s for me 10.5s for him. 3 down....
So, I was just going out to play for a few runs and go home and I did, man that was fun…..
