Took the 900 out for a couple of passes with the new multi-disk clutch to get a feel for things. Second pass, put down a 11.7 at 132mph a mile high at Bandimere. Had to leave after that, but very excited now, planning a trip to Kearney in NE to see if we can get that .5 that the Nhra gives in CF...

1.7 60'

11.787 at 132.32mph


Pretty good start with the new set-up I think,

Nice dude... The Mustang got 113mph and 11.9.... It's always amazing and puts a huge smile on my face to see how fast Saab's get in the trap. :)

GOOD! SWEET!

fast, as a comparison sportbikes like mine do high 11's at around 115mph.....
There were a few bikes at the track and although we did not line up against any that day, we have before and have beaten a Yamaha 1000cc, the thing is when you run at 5800' or with a density altitude of 10,000', the na motorcycle is at a dis-advantage against a turbo car. Its a much different story up here and I was able to beat a Honda 1000, can't remember if it was a cbr or RR or what it was, but it was a 1000 and I was able to pull that bike by a couple of cars from 40-140mph on the highway with my gt3071wg and w/m vert.

There was quite a difference in the cars, it definetely felt lighter and faster and more responsive with the engine and suspension swap. The car had worse traction, would spin the tires more easily, I think some of the flex in the vert actually helped with traction. I was now doing 150' burn outs at 75mph instead of just a brief one, the car felt a good bit faster and was about 200lbs lighter right out of the gate.

No question, should have made the swap a long time ago...
