Finally stretched my turbo 600 and took a lil trip to the track. Its sitting at 64.5" wheel base and only running 4 lbs of boost. I also made my own version of a tiger tail to keep the rocks from flinging up and into my seat. I'm still foot shifting with no quick shifters and i had a full tank of gas from the gas station. It made a 9.55 on my first pass and then just got quicker as I added fuel untill the end of the night when I pulled a 9.28 @148. Gotta get the power rolling on the launch, the 60ft was a bit slow.

Hi and Thanks guys. I haven't really kept you guys updated on the changes I've made to the bike. It's been on the street for a while now I just can't get to a track often enough and Gainsville made me leave the track for going 9's with out a license (wasted trip). This is only my third time to the track in the last three months. First time out it was stock wheel base and did nothing but wheelie. Secondtime I was having trouble making boost cause of a leak.
I hope the clutches hold up for a while but I have heavy duty springs one thick steel to raise the stack hieght for the bite and if it starts to slip I'm going to use the friction plates that are used on the top and bottom of the stack. The outside frictions have more contact area than the inner frictions. I calculated it out a lil while ago but I think it was about 15-20% more contact area per plate. You're rite tho Steve, a lock up would be the answer.
