Good luck with that. How does it handle in the twisties?
Not as good as my RC51 that I had setup for trackdays. See unlike you and your closeminded self I try different things and understand people like different things. Drag racing is closer to me more often and cheaper.

Back to sat. night. It was not as good as I hoped for. First it was hot track temp 124 degrees for the most part. This biggest problem was I underestimated how big of a learing curve going from a short arm bike to a stretch bike was. While trying to figure out what launch rpm and type to use my 60ft and et was all over the place. Towards the end of the night I had got it work down thanks to James help to low 1.7 and low 9.7 et more const.
Then battery died right before my last run.
That will be the last weekend I foot shift as 60 ft drops second gear comes up fast. I also think I need a little more gear -1 +2 not quite enough may go +3 or +4.

so is it more of a mind game with the stretch? im so used to throttling threw first that i think im not gonna be able to slip and run with it. you can definitely leave harder tho. ive hit 1.57 60 ft with my short arm 04 before, but it was lowered 5 in the rear and 3 in front then strapped. low enough it would drag the fairings on launch lol
