I hear ya. I spun up coming out of 3 and the back end slipped put about a foot or so and all I could think about was the pending high side. Needless to say my pucker factor was rather high for a second there.

Maybe this will shut up the trackday noobs who say their speedo said 160+mph and I've even heard Level II guys say "my speedo said 17X-mph". We know what indicated vs actual is but you can't tell the street riders nothing.

Some never learn. Believe it or not, after seeing the data some actually argue that they are faster than Ty on the front straight, even on a 750.

Ty let me put a GPX Pro on his bike at the TWS (Texas World Speedway) CMRA races. All by himself, he's 163 on the front straight. Drafting, he's 168. That's on Diggler's stock motor ZX-10.

Pfft, I thought that Ty Howard guy was supposed to be fast. I saw 182 on a stock R-1!
