Usb charger cable.  I was all discombobulated but managed to have very consistent times somehow.

Yeah, great time.  Nice side by side race with Joe (#26).  If I understand the timing slip, we tied with total time = 11.737.  I thought I caught him at the end but would need photo.  This was both our best ET's and MPH.  Great way to end it, but if we knew it was a tie, we might still be out there tearing up our clutches.

Best on the bike was 11.9 @ 113 I think. 

 

Got the car to start doing 13.5 @ 108 after you all left. One of the races was against a cbr500r

His Elapsed Time (overall time) is 11.075. Yours is 11.253.... If I read that correctly.

 Wow we better get the accounting firm of Goldstein & Johnson to check those numbers otherwise let's just call it a tie. 

 It was definitely the best round of the night for us nice way to end

I just realized today that I was basically racing in limp mode the other night! After the 600 miles turned over some other features unlocked including a couple thousand more RPM!!! Launch control also unlocked. I'll have to try that out tomorrow after I figure out how to use it.

Nice, hopefully on a cooler night too. :) I'll have to load both bikes in the trailer for the next one if I still have both. :)

I've always wanted to drag race, but thought I'd do it in a car.  Forget that!

I am sorry I didn't make it out yall.  I will make it out to one of these even if it is just in the car.  Good news is the car is done and now I am just messing with the flash and E85 mix.  If I have things ready and am going to make a night at the track before someone else post up I will be sure to post up myself.
