Barring snowfall (yup) this is my last weekend to go 9s on my street ridden bike. The cold air (50f) is great if the track hooks. Last Saturday I made 9 laps-bad news : no 9s
Good news : worst pass was 10.161 best was 10.090 : ) I only run brackets , so 7/100ths variance in 9 passes is a killer bracket bike!
Fought wheelies ALL day , guess my stock rear is very sensitive to cold : (

gotta get the 60ft down then Bott, as soon as the front starts lifting punch 2nd, worked for me,1.51 best 60.
Puts the front end down nice and gentle and pulls real hard.

you can do it just need to keep at it,I've got rwyb this weekend have raised the gearing a little to see if I can squeeze a bit more out.

Yea , I saw video , I was tripping the 60 beam on the rear. It usually carries about 10-12 inches right thru 1st , but a few passes she stood up high and the shift pulled it up higher. I've been inching up launch revs and was going at 5200 - gonna back it down to 45 or so. I go with the 'lock and slide' method - full lock immediately and slide it out. It works well for me , but makes backing out of it nearly impossible once I commit. I'm positive it's the air temp causing the shock to stiffen up and cause the problem. I'll get it, just need to come out a tick softer...
