Extended swingarm of the week goes to this guy.

I think he could have got away with it a few inch's longer. Maybe add a seat to it.

I have a customer that sprays big pills of nx on the launch and his swingarms are mondo long, but thats a purpose built bike, not a street cruiser. He showed me a hub he spun the center out of launching so hard. He is a guy that travels and does big money races, he says "spray the house down".

But don't you lose ALL weight from the rear tire... resulting in no traction?

Or does it just act like a traction bar on a car and push down?

You get to a point where you don't have enough weight on the tire to hook. If you have enough power it's amazing what will hook though
