What gear do yall go thru the 1/8mi in???

I recently ran my personal best of a [email protected] and went thru the traps in 5th gear. I turned the nitrous up and couldn't keep up with the shifting I kept hitting the limiter in 3rd. Now where I'm torn is 1st gear isn't crazy, i mean it wheelies but not bad and its predictable. I wanna keep my 1st gear acceleration but slow down 3rd and 4th, maybe i need a auto shift box. I'm 15/43 gearing and 145lbs in street clothes. What's yalls gearing,weight, and gear you in at the 1/8?

I cross the 1/4 right at the top of 5th as well. I haven't ever ran just the 1/8th. I'm 15/41 about 160 suited. Think I'm right at top of 3rd at the 1/8th as well but only trap between 119-121 ill see this weekend what she does on the spray though

Do you like the 15/41 better than 16/44?

16/44 and 15/41 are approximately the same gear ratio. I never tried 15/41, but I really like 16/44. It runs really well and livens the bike up a lot.

i ran a new personal best lastnight on my 2010 zx10. 5.73 @ 126mph. I am on 87 pump gas, bone stock motor with a full exhaust and tune. 68in wheelbase. I am about the same weight as you, 145 in boxers and I run 15/42 gearing and hit the limiter in 4th exactly at the traps everytime.
