First race was lots of rain but we managed to run best out of three match race. I won 3-0 this time but that was nothing spectacular, I had to pedal multiple times each run as my ride wanted to kiss the walls so badly. Best thing was I got the new carbs tuned and engine workin good on e85. For the next race I will build more front weight ballast to calm down the wheelies and overhaul the fuel pressure regulator. Not too bad, I didn't break anything.
I'm fast. I can make five mistakes while others think.

As my ride still hits the bars too violent I dig on to my scrap metal pile and made 20lbs more front end ballast weights.
Hope it helps. Total must be around 50 lbs now.
