CRAZe Inc and Bwa- US41 dragstrip 7/23

Good stuff. Unfortunately, we didn't get there until 8:30 and they close the place down at 10, but like I've said 100 times 41 is the place to go for zero waiting and no bullshit tech problems. With the hour and a half Bwa and I had, even with a little break, we managed to do about 10 runs a piece

It was my first time at the dragstrip with the F3, first time dragracing a bike at the track period. I was extremely happy with the results. First off I cut my first perfect .500 light which would have made my night in itself.

My goal was to break into the 11's without any other expectations besides that and I was plesently surprised how well the F3 ran. Best time of the night was a [email protected] That same run I cut a 1.83 60' Not too shabby for the first night at the track with the F3 that probably has 80-85rwhp and a 200 pound rider. No suspension adjustments either, I took it straight from my garage to the track. I have a feeling I may go back kinda soon, I was just finding some shift points that were dropping my times right before they booted us out.

Of course I have to give special mention to Bwa. It was his first time to the strip and he picked it up reallllly quickly. I was impressed. But I'll let him toot his own horn

Cool

I had an awesome time. First time at the track as PJ mentioned. Can't compare it to running in a car, but that will change some time . US41 is the shit. In that hour and a half, i ran 12 times, and that includes about 20 minute break. (i rode there, so my ass was pretty sore..)

Well, my goal was to get into 12's, and I sure did.

[email protected] MPH

Best reaction time: .674

Best 60ft: 1.958

Man, this is addicting as hell.... i can't wait to go again, except this time for the whole day. I was just getting hold of it when they closed the place.

P.S. Man, snowmobiles are freakin' fast!

There was two guys there, though one kept working on his sled.. the other was fast, but I don't think he was running 8's... can't tell, they didn't have the boards lit up.

hmmmmm I'll ask my uncle if him and my cousin went. My cousins sled runs around 10's my uncles is incredible but being that fast its bound to be a bit finicky. You would have seen the lo-ko stickers on the sled if it was them

Lol, I guess it wouldn't matter to you, losing the title to somebody elses bike. Even I would take that bet against a Katana.
