TOPIC: Nice night at the track

Nice night at the track 2 years 3 months ago #1

IMG_20120112_220211.jpg

Starting off I miss Bob being with me but I was working south and took the bike to the job
10 degrees warmer than last week and much more humidity

10.040 139.38

10.045. 134.38

9.919. 138.29. 1.639 60 ft

9.917. 136.03 1.662 60 ft

Several spin out runs tried looser strap runs one wheelie run had to get out of it

Then someone blew an engine and oiled the track and that shut it down for a good while

Big D and Brett were running real low 10's when I left

Brett did not have his quick shifter tonight because of his faulty PCV D or myself had no problems with ours

Kyle got their late and had to wait the cleanup before he could run not sure of his Gen 1 times

Once the street car tires run the track gets bad so I bagged it.

I am on the pad so will post slips when I get home

Happy to whittle my times down even more the Big air Bock V2 Fash combo pulls real hard

Brett said I pulled him 3 lengths between the 1/8 th and 1/4 if I can improve my short game I see 9.80's

Good job Bob, way to back up last trip! Weather was not nearly as good to run fast today as you had last time out. (You know me....I check this kinda stuff ;)) In fact I bet your times corrected for conditions would have you in the 9.8's.
I dream of the kind of 60 footers you guys are getting in the low 1.6's. Good work! :thumbsup:

Bob is right his bike is pulling really hard. When I got there I watched him bog off the line and bump off the limiter and still ran a 10.1. Crazy stuff.
My runs where as listed:
10.110 / 1.661 60'er
10.103 /1.609 60'er
don't know how that 60'er happened!
10.084 / 1.648 60'er
10.069 / 1.648 60'er @ 136.90mph
All runs approximately 132-136mph
The track got oiled down at the wrong time. When we get there early we can pretty much run back to back for almost an hour before all the cars get there and line up. When the track got oiled the cars began to stack up and slowed down the frequency of our runs when they finished cleaning the track. It's a little harder when you have to make every run count because you have a semi-long wait for the next one. The chase continues, there's always next time.
