Personal best ET's today

Today was 60 degrees after a 2 week spell of shitty weather. So i went to the dragstrip. I have been trying a new technique of launching the bike and it seems to work for me. Before i was slipping the clutch out around 6-7k rpms and getting shitty ET's and 60 foot times. My ET's use to be 10.20's to 10.30's @ 138ish mph and 1.80-1.90 60 foots. Now i am leaving at 3-4k and getting out of the clutch asap. The clutch is all the way out before i pass the tree and rolling into the gas hard. Heres what i got today from fastest to slowest.
1.76 60 foot 6.61 @ 115 1/8 mile 10.03 @ 142
1.74 6.63 @ 115 10.05 @ 142
1.80 6.65 @ 116 10.06 @ 143
1.78 6.64 @ 115 10.08 @ 141
1.81 6.66 @ 115 10.07 @ 142
1.78 6.64 @ 115 10.08 @ 141
1.86 6.77 @ 115 10.20 @ 142 spun off the line trying higher 4500k launch
1.76 6.76 @ 114 10.21 @ 141 got squirrely at half track
1.82 6.79 @ 113 10.26 @ 140 wheelie in first had to let off

Now i know lots of you guys have done much better but i am just happy as hell with myself today. :)

I got really squirrely right after the 1/8, felt like my rear end was about to break lose!!! I still ran a 10.7 @ 122mph. I think I would have ran about a 10.4, 10.5 If that would not have happened!! After the Rear broke lose, the front also suffered from headshake!! I about shit my pants, and after that I left feeling lucky to be in one peice!!!!!

Blue i was just watching those videos of Norm Jackson on the 10 and Gadson on the 14. Now those guys are super talented but i noticed that they are out of the clutch right out of the hole. But they do leave at alot higher RPM then i do. I figured shit! I need to get this clutch out and at WOT ASAP. With the bike lowered and strapped and geared theres not much need to slip it out pass the 60 foots. The extra gear will pull it thru. Last pass of the day i left at 3000 RPM hammered the gas and ran that 10.03.
