Sounds like your competition was a little scared. That's horse shit that somebody would pull some dirty shit like that. Another reason I have been wanting to completely rid myself of my ignition.

On another note, it sounds like you were kicking ass man. Congrats.

Best 1/4mi ET: 8.98 @ 147 (stock motor, no turbo/nitrous)

Quick question...your 60fts stayed around the same yet your et's dropped and you picked up mph....fuel changes, got cooler, or just got more comfortable on the bike???

That key business is crap.

My buddy flew down to watch the race and had a good time. He probably even saw you run. You guys had some killer air there.

yeah, great air for hp, barametric pressure about 30.2 and cool. rider trying to find best shift point, found his groove and got real consistant during elimination runs. ran 16/44 same as 1/8 gearing. every pass of the day was in the 8's including elimination passes. man, we had fun too, the key incident could'nt even ruin my day, gonna keep my racing fun nomatter what this time. these zx10's can more than hold their own against the modded busas and 14's at a natl. event, showing them is what it's all about. thanks everyone for all your input through the year. hope we all fly.
