Are you matching your RPMs to optimal torque for the launch or just whaling away on the limiter, etc.?

Yep he's a GREAT UP and COMER, better yet up and MADE rider from here Gilbert Coronado. The dude is mad FAST!!!! He's going to the pro-star competition this w/e, i wish him and my homie Quick B luck!

He was hitting low/mid 5s, i had shaved another 2 tenths off of my previous best to hit some mid/low 6s. This is the 1/8 mile track BTW!

yes i do, but my dumb keeps trying to hold on 2 that clutch so i won't wheelie, not thinking let the go u r long now, but seat time will help that as i saw last night! My times and launches were getting smoother and smoother. I'm kinda glad i have this so i can see my mistakes in action.

I also need to gear that which i'll be getting done this weekend, my 1st gear is pretty tall, so i think i'm loosing a little 60 ft with that 2.

The problem with leaving like Gilbert is they go through clutches about every 8 or 10 passes
