so who here is dragging a zx 10 with a stock wheelbase and just front straps with the stock rear height, thats finished in the top 6 at their local track. no bs here. i wanna know how bad it is to run consistant on a 55 " machine with no swingarm or rear lowering mods. i`m collecting some stats here...i know theres some pro`s out there that can race anything within .03 that has two wheels. allright how many folks are in the points program with that same set up that are OUT of the top 10????

I'm certainly no pro, but I can keep it pretty consistant with mine. Mind you, I'm up at SIR (3125ft... usually showing more than 5200 density-wise), but I'm running stock exhaust, wheelbase, and ride height at both ends (up a little in the back, actually... like 15-20mm). As long as I'm not trying to go faster, I can settle into a 10.30-10.35 grove I can stay with all night long. My only cheat is a PC3 and a DJ quickshifter, which I have set to engage at my shift point... just preload the shifter every gear and let it do the work. I find launching to be consistant, but I'm not hitting it as hard as I can, either. High 1.7's and low 1.8's are easy, predictable, and consistant. Up there, I didn't have to go all that fast to hang out in the gamblers for a few rounds (a lot of the wheelie bar V-twins were in the 11's up there... slow track).... just pound the tree and try to stay out of the red light. I've made up for some sloppy times with good lights more than once. :) anything better than the .020 range in the RT department will keep 'em sweating a bit. ;)

strech it and be done, no wheelies or anything just goes 6.05-6.08 is the best it stayed together at one race. Atlanta Dragway track champ here

Being consistent on any SWB bike takes lots of practice. If you are going to bracket race, buy some extentions and a good tire.:thumbsup:
