HRP or LMP are the two tracks to go to around houston if you want 1/4 mile. LMP was suppose to have a test & tune Dec 18th but they cancelled that and moved it to Jan 18th. LMP is usually pretty slow so you can get quite a few races in and they are less strict about certain things.

I went to LMP on Dec 4th for my first time at the track. First time was a little nervous launching, but if you take it easy the first couple times you don't have much to worry about. I imagine your bike will be a little easier to launch then mine so you should be fine.

This time line up next to GixxerGeezer, your Busa should be faster than his kayak!
Of course if he's on his Busa, all bets are off...

My first time out I was cutting 2.0 60ft's with a couple 1.9 60ft's. I'm not for sure how bad those are as the only comparisons I have were the two turbo bikes Robert was driving and the other Busa that was out there.
