Well I took a chance and went to Ubly anyhow.... and so glad I did!

I was shooting for a 9.7 hit that right away and before you know it I got my ALL TIME BEST OF 9.500 :twofinger that's right on just motor baby.... I was so stoked cuz I could have done a 9.4 if I had my previous runs 60 footer... and I had to leave early to get to Jens so I'll be back on Sunday to get that 9.4 yet :eyebrows:

Only other bike there as Kyle... good to see you again.. too bad the track wasn't hookin up better for ya...

Speedy was there as well with his car and I'll let him tell his story ;)

Marc was there helpin out his fatherinlaw and was nice enough to help line me up and give me some pointers on a better burnout.... I'll be ready for that NOS come spring with a new rear tire ... 8 seconds here I come :drool:

DAMN E! I always thought dragging was kind of stupid until Jonathan took me to Milan for a real evening of racing (opposed to the stupid sport compact fast and furious bull shit that my previous job pertained to). And SOnicsBoom (?) was also there running that night. It was my first night seeing bikes race. While I'm still in favor or turning left and right...I say mad props to you guys! It looks VIOLENT riding one of those bikes down the strip!

Someday I promise I'll make it up there to watch ya.


Mmmm...Redbull and Vodka is my friend.

Like I told ya on the phone, MPH = HP so that shuld always be close on every run. Now ET has lots of variables and thats why it can change so much from run to run. Your 60 ft has alot to do with ET. Your reaction time has no effect on ET, only how quick you can react to the lite. Once you start bracket racing then you want to be quick on the RT.
