axeman said:it only takes a split second better reaction time to be that much ahead. when you stage, your front tire will be lined up with that white box/line. the Z1000's front tire is past that, so i would guess that they were running heads up. probably a test and tune day.
could be possible if you get a good reaction, launch and your a lightweight. good luck. I will be heading back to the track tomorrow night. ;D my best is 13.5 at 102. but im still working on my lauch. I have only made about a dozen passes or so over the past few weeks. I keep trying to find time to practice but I can never find it. lolFor what it's worth, I've squeezed a couple of 12.1's at 109mph out of my mostly stock '03. I think I can crack into the 11's. I need to get video of it.
Mind you, these are 1/4 mile distances I'm referring to.
A .500 is perfect? how does that work? I have gotten a .235 and my buddy has gotten a .030.Yeah your getting into it way too hard way too fast, I stage deep and launch in second, hold the rpm around 8k and take off right after the third yellow. You wanna try to keep your rpm at 8k while your letting out on the clutch untill your speed catches up to your rpm then just gun it and you can hammer through the gears from there . I'm 135lb and my best is a 12.04 with a .502 light, .500 is a perfect light at my track.
