the bike is all about the swingarm: 8" over, custom "one-of-a-kind".
the world's only wet-nitrous hornet (that i can find) has been giving me trouble when "bottle fed". i play with nitrous for 2 runs during test and tune, and race it as a stock motored 919 off nitrous for consistancy and bracket racing points. i ran a [email protected]
all-motor last year, but talled-up the gearing for nitrous over last winter. 10.82 @121 is my best in this current configuration. the track should be open for one last "play" day this coming weekend, and i'm going to try different spark plugs and such, and maybe pull a rabbit out of my hat to better my [email protected]
nitrous record. i KNOW there's a 9 second run somewhere in this bike just waiting to be let out. i really should find a way to borrow a portable data-logging exhaust gas analyzer.
i'm going to decide over the winter if i want to commit EVERY sunday and quite a few saturdays of what's a very short summer to chasing the points again, or if i want to focus on my other goal, of hitting a 9.99. actually, i should really consider a 919 at 9.19 as my goal, but maybe that's a tad "pie in the sky".
if i bracket race, i'm going to get a PCIII quick shifter and gear him really low. i may do that anyway.
one thing for sure, i'm getting more rubber on the road. i'm sick of spinning it off the line. it may be all out, square shouldered drag slick time, come next spring.
one of my racing pals will sell me his stretched and slammed turbo 'busa for under $10k. that, my friends, is tempting. to a frustrated 10-seconder like me especially.
