Pity you didnt g...

ballast

at the 2004 event, my turbo Kawasaki had, wet, including me, frount 46%, rear 54% wheel bias. Now i didnt run the 200mph speeds you fellas did, but during the third mile i was up to 10,000rpm in top, with the gearing i was running, this equated to 203mph, take out wheel slip, lets say a conserative ...

more LSR events

The ideal situation would be that all LSR events be held under the umbrella of one organisation, utilising the rules, and classes that are already in place.

Ballast = Total required driving force at rear wheel, devided by 10, mutiplied by 4. Now i ask those of you that have had many years experience racing on "th...

more LSR events

The more the better, i recon. There is an airstrip up here thats rumored to be closeing down, i made a few inquiries a couple of weeks ago, however, as its going through the political stage at the moment, no one can give me a straight answer.
