Two Races-Two Finals
Two races, two finals. Not too bad for a mid season start. At the KOTS race, a sensor failed and the bike would not start in the final. Last weekends NHDRO race was in Louisville Kentucky. I believe we were favored to win that 1/8 mile race also due to our CBR1000rr is very light and suited for the 1/8 mile better than the big bore bikes.
True to form we qualified number one and marched through to the final. The final round bug bit again when Frankie started spinning and never fully recovered. Thanks to the Robinson trans, the bike shifted even with the tire spinning, and Marcus's M2 shock kept it transferring power while spinning most of the track. Bruce at Speed and Strength got his people to crank out some beautiful leathers with the left arm sized to accommodate the brace and make Frankie comfortable again.
The most exciting news for me is when we came back, pulled the motor and took it apart, everything looked beautiful. Thanks to Kurt at Sikora Precision, and Glenn with everyone at Falicon crankshafts for all the R&D we did over the winter and the beginning of the season leading to some very good reliability. We are still anxious to get the billet crankshafts, then we can turn up the horsepower for the last half of the quarter mile races. All in all, a great start for a mid-season comeback.
