The one i was at they had a contest for best time per cc size. I think i was the only 750 so I had a gimme win but I was only beat by 1 1000 and that was Candy. Everyone was actually tryin to one up eachother so it made it more interesting. Im ready to get back home so I can put my back together and get out there again

I could be wrong, but I think that was her intro to it as well.

My 1000 traps WFO in 6th gear.Newer 1000s make very little torque.Easy way to overcome this is a lower gear ratio,I ran my best 1/8 mile ever with 15/48 gears.Actually tied my best 1/4 mile with the same gearing just ran out of MPH

Also, if anyone wants to get schooled see Mathews. I am still trying to process the moves he put on me in a race. It was incredible. It was wheel to wheel till the last 3'. That was after he realized he was a mile ahead of me in the front half. Not to mention I had a up run and he pulled back nearly a full sec. for the win by about 3'.

Ive done both. Both are fun, road racing is just to far out of my budget for what it cost to race a lot and to win you must be aggressive which means you will crash and my body cant handle it anymore. Almost all the great professional road racers have went to drag racing schools to learn how to get out of the hole quicker.
