Actually the ZR hooked much better than the REV. If I had hooked as good the race would have been a little different. The chassis is going to be good when some other little thing are done. We had set the sled up the day befor and had little time to adjust for traction. With good bite it launches like a dream!!!
The doo was out in front on most every launch but would get passed around 1000'. The doo had stock jetting with hopes that the DPM would take over. It seemed pretty clean. The ZR was a little rich on the bottom but we had to do that to keep from bogging out of the hole. The difference was about 2 sleds lengths at the end.
I did not post numbers because we had poor traction. The strip was actulaay a runway. The only thing I had to go by was my bike. That bike ALWAYS run's 11.2 - 11.5 at 125-130 mph. The bike ran 12.7's at this runway. Pretty slow. The zr 900 ran 11.9 and the rev ran 12.2. The numbers are slower than if we were on a good tar surface. I was more impressed with the way it kept up with the ZR and that seemed to hook pretty descent. Cicero will tell the real story. REMEMBER we only spent about 2 hours getting the sled ready for the track. I changed only the primay spring and helix, that's it. I would say that a half second faster is a definite, bringing the time to 11.6 with little to no clutch work. I think with a little work high 10's are in the game. As it was we dropped .6 sec from bone stock but is was a slippery surface to. I would spin to about 100ft. I could floor it on the second yellow light and still not red-light. MPH was around 115 in this form. There were not 60' times either, that's why I brought my bike. Just to have a constant in the roundup.
