    I sprint race here in Cali! Race an SP2/RC51 in Heavy twins, Formula 40 and Formula 1.

    Re: Anyone drag or sprint?

    Just got in from the Drag Strip tonight.

    My first pass was a 10.98 @ 130.2 mph
    not bad considering my R/T was a .612
    and my 60' was 1.985 :-(

    When and if I ever learn to launch I will be in the mid 10's

    Was a sad night at the strip tho due to a custom VTX1800 crashed at the end of the track and pretty sure the rider was killed. Life flighted him out but blood was coming out his ears, nose, mouth and even his eyes. Rescue had to clamp his tounge to his shirt. Didn't look good for him.
    Lots of problems on the track tonight so I only got in three passes.

    Your R/T doesn't affect your time. But that is a good time considering your 60ft was ordinary.

    Re: Anyone drag or sprint?

    Thanks I will do that, taking some of the advice from "KENT" on how to do the building of the motor, but he will check more on the net.. mechanic is looking into a Mr. Turbo, and also a Velocity because "Kent" used that one, but we shall see, will keep everyone informed on the project. Nice to meet you..

    Re: Anyone drag or sprint?

    Stotz has a lot of his info on his site about what they did to the XX.What I never figured out was the hp jump from 505 to 570,I don't think it was just more boost,don't know if Kent ever put more than 30lbs into it.I always like the rad from the vt600 trick.

    Re: Anyone drag or sprint?

    will have to check into the 65 hp jump, either it was more boost, or a combination of boost and fuel, because he says the blackbird engine was one of the strongest motor's he's used, from articles I've read it was a bad as bike..
