It's hard to do much better than that. Someone told me years back, that when you launch (a car) you want the wheels to lift a few inches to get the best traction. I would think this would be ideal for bikes too, so I usually try to find a happy medium of clutch slip and floating the front wheel a smidgen. Is this what you guys do?

HMP (1/8th mile) is over in Kingwood . I will say that it has ghetto surroundings & participants, but its not a bad track to run at.

I guess if your hanging the front tire then U are using all your available traction.. Or about to ride a showboat wheelie down the strip

Come on TIM. U need to set up a meet for the 1/4 mile. Get out the OG's and maybe give some lesson/pointers
