Headin' to Pittsburgh Raceway Park today. Any suggestions?

I've finally gotten all the work done I've wanted to get done (long list). Any suggestions for when I'm at the track? Will post times later tonight.

Re: Headin' to Pittsburgh Raceway Park today. Any suggestions?

[email protected] 1.8 60ft. I've gotta learn how to launch better. I know this bikes got a 10 second run in it. But for 3 grand I'm runnin' with $100,000 supercars. I was stompin' every bike off the line with .2 or less reaction times. I caught a ZX-14 slippin' and he barely nosed me out at the end. I'm headin' back in a couple weeks for a Gamblers Race. I ran 11.3 consistently. You get 2 runs to dial in and you have to stay within 1/10 of your best time. Might have a good chance.

Re: Headin' to Pittsburgh Raceway Park today. Any suggestions?

It's all about timing the lite (or green flag) and slipping the clutch. When I was racing from time to time I would hit the 1/4 to practice my starts
My right leg always back by exhaust, stretched out as far as it would go, revs up around 8 to 9K, pointer and middle finger on the clutch lever. Left foot on peg ready to smack 2nd before my right was even back on the peg, elbows slightly up heart pounding...... Knowing I have to 1st gone in to turn 1, staring at the flag waiting for the starter to flinch. He flinches you go slipping the clutch (not burning it up) front wheel hangs a couple inches off the ground smack 2nd gear (do not use the clutch) smack 3rd, again no clutch and it's a game of chicken in to turn 1....
Lol sorry got a little carried away there... LOL having flash backs!!! Man do I ever miss racing...
Anyhow you get the point right?
I ran 10.6 @ 133 in the 1/4 on my 2002 ZX6 race (roadrace) bike, not lowered or stretched.
Me and my buddy would make a few bucks putting the smack down on the liter boys in the 1/4 mile..
Hope that helps, remember if you don't have an air shifter then the only time you use your clutch to shift is on the start and when your down shifting... Never up shifting, blip the throttle, kinda like when your down shifting..
Thanks
Powers
