T&T, getting there
« on: June 11, 2016, 01:40:59 PM »
My local track just opened today and I made my best passes on my bagger this year. I got to go earlier this year, but have been lining out clutch issues, which led to wheelie and launch issues.  Every pass today was within a tenth.  There is local run what ya brung ina couple weeks down @ Sikeston MO, that wil be just my second time running off a pro tree, will see how I do. The bike is an '04 Electraglide with a crate 124, heads by Megaflo.

I think I finally figured out where to stage the bike, although my 60 suffered for it.  My reactions aint what they used to be

Thanks, I think its got 7.0's in it now that I've got the monster wheelie launch under control, T&T next week with higher launch rpm see if can get in the 1.60's

Thanks, starting to feel like I can do this.   Track photog got a decent pic of me leaving last week, I've got the front wheel just skimming finally, will feel better about upping my leave rpm.  It was doing the showboat job off the line.  Clutch and shock adjustments are what made the change for me.  Just getting my feet back on the floorboards.

anytime you can keep the ft end down (under 3-4"),you`ll ET better.big wheelies are good "Kodak" moments,but they will scrub off your time
