Ran the 10 Last night. Not so good. Crit!
Hey everyone. I ran my 10 last night at Maple Grove. I did BAD. I got a decent amount of runs for only getting there at 5 and being able to line up at about 5:45 or so since i had to strap down and what not. I got 7 runs in 4 hrs. Not to bad. First time taking the 10 there and let me tell you I looked and felt like a rookie. Running the 10 is nothing like the 600. I need some practice. I would line up thinking ok I am going to launch at 5500- 6k and slowly slip the clutch and get to WOT fast. Well what I seemed to do was slip the clutch to fast b/c I poped wheelies 4 out of the 7 times I ran. And yes I was strapped. I strapped it all the way down till there was a 1/4" left and I dropped the rear 2" via Muzzy Links. My best run was a 10.734 @ 132.66mph. Bad I know. That run i had a .259 reaction time ( my reaction times weren't to good) and a 1.895 60'. My best 60 of the night was 1.872. My runs varied between 10.734 and 11.373 (<-1st run). I felt like ass. I ran 20 psi on the rear PP. Some times I could not get to WOT till after I shifted into 2nd gear. I didn't install the Rifle mans 1/5 yet. Sometimes I couldn't get my left foot up fast enough. When I was staging I would try to hold the bike back and it just felt so hard to hold back. Like it just kept wanting to go when I would get the RPM's up. I had some very good coaches last night but feel I let them down. C's Racing might be dropping me as a sponsor. I thought I would at least run mid 10's my first time out. I thought my mods would've backed me up ( see sig ). I know my seat time on this 10 needs improvement and I need tons more of it, but I also thought maybe not having the bike tuned yet has just a small bit of play in it. I'm running some BS Full Akra and filter Map from DJ's website. I wore a 1 pc last night so I was probably 225lbs suited. I am currently 210ish. Gotta get back down to the low 190's. I'd like to hear peoples thought, especially guys like Bloo who I believe are bigger guys and who achieved good times. There was 2 other 10's there last night. Both 4th gens. 1 rider was 125lbs suited with a slip on and the other 160 suited with a slip on. Both ran constant 10.4's - 10.5's with no real experience. Both were not strapped and were ride height. The one guy was launching at 4k all the time. Again I just felt like a dumb ass with all the bolt ons I have running so bad. I did however achieve pretty much the same mph (give or take 2 or 3) has some of the guys running 10 flats so I know it's all in my launches. I am SWB. Crit away, but please don't get to crazy on me.
