Been fighting me all weekend, did manage to run 179 mph w it bangin the limiter on a peddled and high gear 1/4 mile pass. Went back the next round and the carbon fiber driveshaft spun the front yoke in the tube when I turned the brake loose.

Had a decent handle on it two weeks ago this weekend it wouldnt move out of its own tracks. May try a gear swap and see what happens... Track was so so, its like if its on point i can get it down on one kit good, try both and no dice. It did make a decent run off the trailer yesterday, but used up the whole lane in the process.

Starting to get a bit aggravated w it tbh, may park it and go play with guns again idk.

Using up the whole lane ?? get out of it, don't need you ending up like some others. There's always another day to race and it's not like you are getting paid to risk your life out there.
Be safe

What material is the borrowed drive shaft made of? Fiber shaft most likely didn't shock the tires like the new one does.

I'd expect better results. Even with zero passes on 'em, 2 year old tires are for swap meets. Wink

Sounds like you acquired some more brass/copper and need a stress reliever, go bust some rounds...might help to get back in the groove with the Tang Tack Driver. Cool

Bump for a shakedown with a 1.58 and some new boots progressing with enough NOS to drop kick a mule...maybe some HeRo footage too. Very Happy

Waitin on slicks and the next race date, should be the 5th.
1.80 still in, made a few sus changes and plan on hitting it harder instead of softer... See what happens.

If the weather turns to crap prob be next spring
