Just gears, exhaust, quick shifter and the PCV... It is lowered a few inches and strapped down in the front.

I did go back to the track since then, ran a 10.71 @ 126.. It was warmer out this last time, maybe thats why i lost 2mph but launched like a 1.7X 60 foot. The vid is on FB, but not on youtube i guess.

You need to get lower on the bike, get a clear screen and look through it. Fold in the mirrors too.

What has been done to the bike btw?

KingOfColorado Decent run, good luck in the future, I could see that going 10.5 's on a harder launch.

Wow. Our track is sorry and that shit wouldnt get by here.... Just be careful taking advice from guys that do sketchy shit like that. And if you race brackets ever, dropping the dime is a sure fire way to go a round.

The no bar and shock thing is a safety issue, not one that requires NHRA sanction. If you've ever seen one of those bar bike catch air and go over, you'll understand that its not something you want to be a part of. Improperly setting up and then launching on a shock can bend or even break the bar mounts.

Shocks and wheelie bars are specifically disallowed, just like straps and wheelie bars. You have to solid strut it to be legal, or at least that is my understanding.



Yeah, the outlaw/shootout guys are in the 7s and 8s or faster all day long with no bar. And 144 is pretty sad, our 674 threw down almost 145 yesterday on a 9.52 pass....with plenty left on the table. Unless you are doing at least near the 8s in the quarter on a 14/Busa, you're pretty disappointing.

This was just a Test-and-Tune... so it wasnt like it was the NHRA or anything.
