Hey folks, the turbo bike isn't quite ready, so I'm bringing the nitrous bike, and shooting for the 208.087 APS/F-1000 record. Scott Guthrie Racing is helping me out with logistics and aero tips.
To be considered an 'Altered' class bike (the "A" in APS), I'm running a cut down tank, less than 1 gallon. It also lets me tuck under the fairing a little tighter.
This bike made 178hp on pump gas, stock displacement, with a Competition CNC head and race intake cam. Tuned for dry nitrous at Livengood Motorsports, it made 240hp on C-16 fuel, with retarded ignition timing.
With this tuneup it ran 218.7 mph at the final meet of last season. Hopefully it will run close to that, maybe a little better.
If it runs OK and sets a record, I have a tuneup for a larger nitrous jet (52 vs 41) set up for a Walbro fuel pump. With the 52 it makes about 280hp with a richer AFR and more timing pulled.
I'll take some onboard video and post it next week, as long as it doesn't melt :)
