Whoop Arse Wednesday
« on: November 11, 2015, 05:45:51 AM »
So I had a Borrowed Throttle Body and my daughter was keen to head down to the drag strip for what we call Whoop Arse Wednesday.

I pulled of a 10.759 pass at 217kph
60 foot time of a 1.7

I have a video of one of my runs tonight that the daughter took on here phone and will post it up

From your et/mph I'm guessing that's 1/4 mile?  Which bring up a question never thought of before;  do AU drag strips run 1,320ft. 1/4 miles and 660 ft. 1/8 miles or do you use your national measures distance?  I sure wish the world would get together on measurements. 
Good run, looking for the photos.
I'm starting to believe my body is gonna outlast my mind.

Great job
What was the original TB and what TB did you borrow?
What were the other fine tuning and major changes that got you down into the 10's?

The build is the 120r fitted with the Hurricane Kit fitted into a StreetBob with SPF custom 2:1 pipe
The TB is the SE62mm with the busted butterfly shaft and that's what I pinched from another bike.

Not really impressed with the Michelin Commander for the street, particularly in the wet
but obviously working for you
(bit more heat in the rubber and lower psi must do the trick)

I rate the Commander pretty Highly in all conditions
But here is an early run with a cold tyre and full pressure

That is a VERY nice bike.
Great job on running as good as it looks.
