Manufacturer's Cup in Valdolsta - finally got some passes

Hello all. Been a long summer with work and no riding, but finally got to race this weekend. My dad GAZX10 and I went to Valdolsta and got some passes in. Both bikes ran good. Have a few minor issues to tweak on mine...had a bog off the line all weekend and ran outta gear in the 1/4 on nitrous...but it has a lot of potential. Want to thank my dad for all his hard work this summer on my bike...he really has skills and a crazy attention for detail. Timeslip and pictures posted below.

Baybay is very consistent. He got faster every pass all weekend even with the bog off the line. Ran 16/43 on my bike, which was fine on motor but ran outta gear on N20. Gonna try 17/43 on nitrous next time out.
Dad is one of the best at little details on a bike. Both bikes got attention all weekend. Gonna see how fast we can go next year on them. Should be fun!

thanks toney. wer'nt gonna run nitrous at all, decided sun. morning to blow our 2 et dial in runs and juice it. knew gearing off for nitrous but still had gear for about 163-164. this was 2nd nitrous pass ever, bogged a little hurting 1/8 +1/4 et, shut off early running less mph than on just motor. would have run all the mph geared for. i wanted to stay on the gas at least one more pass, high 8.20 for sure, matt and baybay wanted to et race. baybay #1 et points leader in cup series, had to respect that, he needed points, finished 10th out of huge field. gonna dedicate the bike to going fast next year. gonna redegree the cams, gear it, retard a little timing, up the dry shot, bring in nitrous quicker, retune. bike stayed on the ground at 65.5 inches, machining arm to 67.5. matt and i always have a blast at the races, looking foward to this spring and opening cup race in april. gonna be ready.
