Thread: Took it to the drags last Wednesday

    Took it to the drags last Wednesday

    Did a couple of runs, missed a shift on a first, and managed to get a decent run the second time. Then, just watched others race.

    Did 12.9, 108mph and 2.19 60'. As you can tell, there is room from improvement. I could probably run 12.7 with a few more practice runs but did not want to run the bike that hard for much longer. Right on par with what it should do at sea level, I figure 1.2 sec loss due to 5,800 feet altitude..
    On a side not, a GTR ran 150mph and somebody on a bike did 170mph...

    Nice! Not quite 1.2 second loss from my experience, but your results may vary. Keep practicing and you'll get those sixty foot times down which result in better ET.

    Yeah, I'd like to practice that more often, it's fun.but I figure it's not great for the clutch or tires, mostly clutch that I worry about.

    Nice job and a very respetable time. Just FYI for every 1/10 you shave off your 60 ft time will get you approx. 2/10 off your final E.T.
