****

There are several test and tune days scattered here and there, but the above are official race events that I have planned for.

I hope to make Union Grove's Tuesday Night Events.. They host a Womens's Only Bracket Series every Tues.. I did pretty good there last year considering I mostly was still trying to tune the lockup and you could never fully guarantee what I was gonna run LOL... best part is even though it's a test and tune night for everyone - women get in and race for free... can't beat that!

Hey E... I did not know you rode a 929... I just ran into your post in Fireblade.org! Do you drag race it?

-Marc
Howdy... yup.. ride the 929 for my everyday streetbike.. but use to run it on the road course as well as the drag strip.. but only for fun.

now I drag race the busa.. which is going from a stock motor on small dry shot of NOS to an RCC Ultra Turbo motor for 2008 :eyebrows:

no clue... never look at the gals :p



You paint that bubble bike yet?

you mean the red white and blue scheme I had wanted? no... been white all season.. and now money is too tight for performance mods and racing expenses I can't shell it out to have it repainted. :loser:

E.

YES! There is usually about 1000 - 2000 people there on those nights, and ladies get in free. Lots of eye candy.

Hey Eunice how have you been? I notice your location says west of Chicago....No longer living up in the thumb?
yup yup.. moved end of july last year... doing well thank you...


Quick Run down of my first passes ever on the new setup at US131 on May 16th:​


First Pass: 11.8 (couldn't find drag pegs too far back, AMS was not turned on which meant no boost, Missed my shift points due to tire spinning and shift light on entire time - total botched run LOL)

Second Pass: 8.4 (still couldnt' find pegs, short shifted a couple times, and went from side to side entire length of track LOL)

Third Pass: 8.03 @ 187 mph (changed AMS setting - track was not holding the larger amount of boost and moved my drag pegs up closer to me and removed toe sliders to give me better traction at the line to steady the bike while leaning forward)

Forth Pass: 8.20 (lot's of tire spin off the line and down the track and discovered my throttle housing kept spinning on me keeping me from getting to full throttle on my runs)

Fifth Pass: 8.27 @ 176 mph (better 60 foot time than any other pass but wheelied mid track and somehow lost my windscreen ?? )


Ended the day with the 2nd Fasted ET out of about 40 bikes I think?


After changing out my throttle tube and kill switch housing and checking my clutch for possible adjustments I know I should be in the 7's next time out...

Will be racing at Milan on Friday June 6th :eyebrows:

the class I race is don't allow for wheelie bars.. it's too easy to go fast with wheelie bars and like the thrill of knowing I can do it without them... granted with the right chasis setup to handle the power being put on the rear like that LOL....

Made a few 7 sec passes the last week.. finally figurin out how to keep the wheelie gremlin at bay.. between shock binding up on swingarm... then bottoming out as well as excessive clutch wear... I've done 7.99 then 7.83 then a 7.80 which should have been a 7.60 if not for an early shift into 2nd around 9K due to my trying to bring thebike back in teh groove and screwing up my short time... here's a couple videos of the last two runs..

Video 7.83 run


Video 7.80 run


I'm now the first and only female world wide currently to have gotten into the 7's on a prostreet bike (street tire - no bar or slick) :cheers:
