I must be a better driver then I give myself credit for. I would think a first time driver at the track would be able to shave 1.62 seconds off their time with practice, considering I sat there for almost a half second, and bogged it a little on the launch, but if you state thats not possibly then who am I to argue. I must be a natural.

your right, some people have it, and some people don't.although, you could have sat there for 2 hours and wouldn't have went any faster. the timing doesn't start until you move and break the beam. then your timed from point A to point B.

The 125 number tells me that you should be able to see lower et's.

I rode the bike there never changed a thing and ran that number. If I messed with a bunch fo other stuff it could go a little faster but I'm happy for now.

On a basic stage 1 setup, i went easy out of the hole to feel the bike out and went 12.50. First pass ever on a bike. second pass upped launch rpms to 6,000 and went 11.61 @ 115mph. so you can do 11s no problem. 10s are a whole different ballgame.

When you see the third yellow light, hammer it. That will give you a really good reaction time, but you may get some red lights before you learn it well. The lights are spaced 1/2 second apart.
