There was a bike event at Sacramento raceway yesterday so I went... First thing I found was My nitrous was not working... Thought I`d run anyway... Big problems hooking up after about 1/3 track... finally found a sweet spot and my ignition started cutting out on the top end.. Finally got under 10.0 and called it a day... Timeslip shows 120 at the 1/8 and only 123 at the 1/4. Might as well of been on the brakes the last 300 feet. Still a fun day.. Need some practice... My R/T was waay off.. The other guy leaving first really distracted me on this pass..

Yep - you were sleepin on that one. I'm just picking though - I've done worse than that over the years. That thing must be sure enough horrible in the second half - get that ignition fixed and it ought to be a ride. Good going. Clay

That bike is FLYING!!
PM me the next time and I will see if we can go down the hill.

We are going to run the car hopefully in Sept with some changes.
It is tooooo hot before that. Laughing

I`ll do that... Gotta work on my ignition.. MSD box should take care of my top end issues. It normally pulls real hard on the top but it just wouldn`t run... I figure mid 9s on motor. VERY low 9s on the bottle. I`m running a 100 shot on a controller. 50 to 100 over 2 seconds. Hopefully it will stay hooked up on the top end.
And if not.... The girls sure seem to like it anyway... Very Happy

That thing is flying. How much does it torque when you launch?

Sounds like it may be starving for fuel. We chased what we thought was a ignition problem for a year, and finally added a bigger fuel line to correct the miss.

I thought about the fuel thing too but I am running a 110 GPH pump at 6 PSI with AN6 lines.... really felt like ignition.

Torque on launch is a non issue.. Just don`t feel it. I can only leave at 1500 and roll into it or it won`t hook up.
