It is the second race on the video. I pooped a little when the front end came up but cut a decent light. I still lost but I was racing a kid on a new 600 and he has about 50 pounds on me. :laugh:

Nice race Don! Where you running a slick? Looks like a real sticky track.
I've never raced on a real race track, so I have no idea what that's like, but I do know that on most roads, my back tire breaks loose before the front end comes up.
And at what rpm were you shifting at? I try to shift mine right at 8000rpm, 8500 being the red line on my stocker. But if I let her, she'll scream all the way to 9000. She might even go farther than that, but I can feel she doesn't pull as hard up there.
But unless I ever get to do some real track time with real clocks, I can only go by seat of the pants as to whether I'm shifting at the right rpm.
Thanks for the clip!

Nope no slick. I did notice the track was really sticky when I got up to the line. I didn't think it would pull like that with a 110 on the back. :ohmy: I'm shifting at around 7000. I tried going up to 9 or so but my times were better at the lower rpm. When I put in the 1075 kit I'll take it to a dyno and find out where the power drops off.

"pooped a little"

I've been laughing about that for five minutes. Good jump on the guy, though.
