Jack is right...and which other Aprilia? I wasnt at the Katy race but at CMRA mini endurance at cresson, only other Aprilia50 was the LSTD guys (Steve, Jerrel, Henry). I have much respect for those guyz, for their skills and everything else too, but for the sake of making my point, lemme say that go and check the results at
http://cmraracing.com/Results/2006/Event2/me/2_4.xml

we finished 6th in class out of 11 inspite of a crash.certainly not good enough.. but not that bad either.

I ain't picking on ya bud. I was just wondering about the performance. When you see every other RS50 hauling some serious and then you see the #27 one just cruising around, it makes you dumbfounded. But hey, good for you on the racing. Don't you just keep looking at the calender waiting for the next race to get here? I know I did. I absolutly loved racing the minis.

BTW Arturo,
You have any pictures of my Blue YSR #119 from a couple of years ago or the Red NSR50 #30? I would love to have some if you got them. I seem to have been the one taking the pictures all the time so I have very few with me on them while in action.

Actually, they ended up getting a halfway decent shot on accident.

Yeah, you got Pete Strezo there. Oh well. But I know what you mean. No one seems to know how to get a good shot. I have some of the same but with a fuzzy out of focus look. lol

Performance will come with a little experience and track time. And we r not that slow either. If u would check out the link from CMRA mini endurance that I posted, you will see that our best time was a 1:57:xx whereas the best time on only other aprilia was a 2:04:xx. 7 seconds/lap is a good amount of difference IMO.
