I've been following your build thread and can't wait for the track results!
I think you can just get the MPS stutter box and just not hook it up to an air shift solenoid. You'll still be able to horn stutter it, and be able to add the shifter later, youll just have to set your kill time pretty high. You could even get the auto stutter box and just preload the shifter, but that's kinda asking for trouble if you ask me. The auto stutter box does work great though, you just have to halve the rpm number to figure out your pill number.

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.

EDR Performance, because their fast is faster than everyone else's

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

11.2 isn't that bad for a 600. The best I ever did on my gsxr 600 was an 11.0. I feel like I could go a tad bit quicker on the R6, but I don't want to bake the clutch practicing at the dragstrip. I'm a roadracer, so having the best launch ain't gonna help me if I can't figure out how to go fast in the corners.

11.0 on a bone stock 600 is not gonna leave you high and dry on the grid at all.

. A lot of races out this way are won from the front, like all of them.

. Better to be out front from the start than to fight through the pack ... And the locals aren't slow on their launches...

Youre correct... but if you can only claim that # if you can run that each & every time, right off the trailer.
I hear guys saying "I run X:xx lap-time time at X track" but when you look at their race record, they ran that claimed PB once in a low turnout grid with ideal conditions.
There are guys that can run out laps 2-4 seconds faster than my flying lap PB.

Also look at a race where the top 5 are within a second of each other... total race times being super close.

Average lap times speak more than PBs to me.... Everyone has a good day once in a while..
