My first run at the 1/8 mi strip with the 2011

Mods include, Guhl flash, unmapped PCV, M4 GP style, and BMC race. Stock gearing, height, and wheel base. I have to say, I am pretty content with both runs and they were pretty consistent considering I am not a strip junkie.

Let me just say that on both of these runs they had the tree set up for pro... The first time I was lined up against a 14r geared for the TX mile (18,38), ready to rock and roll, know the routine... Blink, GO! WTF?! I thought I blacked out and missed the rest of the damn lights! Dont know what the hell happened, so we cracked off the line and I never saw him even next to me.

Second race was again a lowered and strapped 12r. Same damn thing with the pro tree and still wasnt expecting it. He killed me off the launch but I reeled him in and closed a considerable gap, probably only a half bike length behind him at the finish. 1/4 mile and I would have eaten him up!

Just figured Id share my strip story! Ill be hitting the 1/4 in a couple of weekends after changing up a few things.

How much would the temperature affect preformance as well. We have had horrendous weather the past few weeks, and when I ran it was 95* with 80% humidity

I was running like 7.3 my first time on my 1st Gen. Pro tree really works your mind cuz you dont expect it. Thats what I had to deal with too. Seat time I guess.

Mods = Boz Bros Gild, PCIII (no dyno), BMC Street.
