You need to feed that bitch some gas and work that clutch homeslice! Launch at like 12k and judiciously let the clutch out! Dont dump it, but 2.0 60's are all bad.
You don't say lol. It's my clutch work for sure I know I'm at fault. Very different for me. First time ever at a drag strip with launch control and boost. Don't ask why I can't launch a 6. I have zero issues leaving on the drag bike gtx35r busa. Idk maybe it's the magic launch control and traction control on that cool gold box

Yeah, any asshole can work a drag bike with a launch, two step, and a bar, especially with a slider/lockup. Working a 6 off the line with the left and right hand is an art, and its all in practice. Especially when it comes time to cut a light.

When you want to win, when there is no substitute for the best, when you don't want to feel the sting of second place, you really only have one place to turn.

And delay boxes are bullshit.

Re: Can't launch a 600 for the life of me

I guess to a point. Like I said I'm a circuit guy I was just bored and seeing what she could do. I will take it again to get better at launching but nothing to serious. IMO not meant really for the strip anyway feel much better home on a circuit. Don't have an event till this weekend at summit point and wanted to take her out for some fun

I'm definitely losing some weight this year too. I bought a spare wheel to switch out when I go to the track, a lighter rear tire (shinko hook up), aluminum sprocket instead of steel, agg racing titanium sprocket nuts, lightweight rear rotor, and a lightweight battery.

I'm also adding a lowering strap, quick shifter, any anything else I find to blow my money on.

That hookup is legit. We've run it for a bit now and NEVER had it slip. The test will be on saturday though.... All of those are great mods to start, but air shift is going to be better than quick shift.

Used to do alot of street racing on a stock wheel base bike. Was fun getting laughed at for riding a "shortie"... much to some riders chagrin.

We've spent a little bit of time drag racing..... exclusively 600s. Well, 600s, 636s, and now a 674...

Practice practice practice!!!
