Drag raced today!

Took my 07 bone stock (not even the flapper mod) to the track for the first time today. Got to make there passes, first is on the left last pass is on the right. My vehicle number was 919! First pass would have been faster but was off the throttle and costing through the traps because of my own stupidity. Still kicking myself might have been a tenth quicker. I weight about 190 or so with the gear, I think I did pretty well! [email protected] ended up being my best!

Nicely done!

You'll pick up 2-3 MPH with PCIII and proper exhaust in the 1/8th

Maybe more, here is one of my old slips, take into consideration I was pushing 300lbs at the time:



Remember the first 60' are critical, and too this day, my quickest 60' was on a V-Twin Cruiser.....

Remember that in any short street race

Thanks guys and those are some nice runs. I do have some videos, not very good ones but I will try to get them uploaded. The season is pretty much coming to a head but next year I plan on getting out a lot more and would like to see some 60 foot times of 1.8 or better. And I was thinking about exhaust and pc3 just not sure what exhaust I would want to do yet.

Shoot for 1.6's, it's realistic!

Consistancy is critical.

I beat a turbo funny bike because I cut a better light.

I forget how much of a lead I was given, but the howl of that bike coming up from behind and the wake it made at it blew by me at the end was a rush and a half.

Had no idea I won until I picked up the timeslip.

Good times, test & tune nights are the best.

Beating the funny bike in front of a crowd was a once in a lifetime exerience for me.

Made nearly 30 passes one night many years ago.

Replaced the clutch soon after...,.

Keep it coming!

I can only imagine that would be awesome! I plan on getting many more passes in and how hard of a launch would it take to get a 1.6 and how bad do you fight the front end lol?

With a stock wheelbase, I cut low 1.60's pretty regularly, with the front tied down and a strut in the back. 90% of the race is in the first 300 feet, so getting your departure rpm and clutch release down can make a huge difference. My quickest stock wb pass was [email protected] 120. A little stretch put me in the 1.50's, 10.80's. It's addicting!

Scrat, those are awesome times were there any performance mods on the stock wheel base for the 10.91 pass and did you just use ratchet straps for the front end?

My first 10.xx was a stock wheelbase, tied in the front and a rigid strut in the back. Performance wise, just a flapper mod, 900rr header, and PCIII. This was also with a factory (original!) clutch with aftermarket springs.
Throughout the season I struggled with shifting problems (too many neutrals) and never was able to make clean passes using the quick shifter at WOT. I weigh about 200 with all my duds on.
