I thought about it myself...............then I realised, it's like racing in the rain on bald tires, all the skill in the world isn't going to overcome physics, if you ain't first................ you're last with all your skills lol

The fastest I went swb was my first year of racin in 06 and I went a [email protected] Fastest mph to this date I've gone on the motor. I tied it last year but have yet to beat it. Back then I was lowered 1.5, strap, stock gear, pc3, and a slip on. But I was a little lighter than I am now.. I bet it would be a wheelie monster if I leave this gear on it.

Man I might as well ever since I stretched mine a few months ago I keep launching like on a SWB 1st Gen be careful I think the only reasons I am getting better times is because I changed gearing and added a sticky tire all at the same time

I will like to prove that though that would be fun, I think the next time I buy a new chain I should just go run it SWB with the more aggressive gearing and sticky tire.
