Take your bmw out. Curious to see what it traps. 

E85 mix and catless downpipes + intake should be close enough to 400 whp, if not more. Should be trapping 112-115 I'd think.

I do plan to take it out when I can.  So many kids with games just about every freaking night... lol.  I am not sure what the whp is right now but I know its a good bit more than it started with.  I turned off dtc and put it in sport mode and it pulls hard even while spinning the tires.  I tried to do a rolling 40 mph start and still spin the wheels for a good while when I stomp on it.  Once I get the E85 mix to at least 40% then I will also see about getting to a dyno with it.

 

Anyone know a place that does dyno cars?

Spin at 40 = lots of power!

I believe I have an app on the phone that does it.  Haven't played with it at all yet though.

If you get it to work, you can load data logs into this program https://barnhill.bitbucket.io/ Find a straight and flat road, and take a log in a single gear (probably 3rd or 4th). Ease into it so it doesn't spin and keep it in manual mode so it doesn't shift. Not suuuuuuuuuper accurate, but gets you in a decent ballpark.

Dang, might have to dust off the green bike. :) Still have race slicks on it. :) Maybe I should just load it in the trailer along with a cooler of beer and head on down there. ;)

They just write a number on your headlight. I didn't ask if we could run our own number. I assume that would make things a little more difficult for them as they probably just pick numbers sequentially as people come through tech.

We actually saw a girl on a 600 w/o gloves and short socks.  I'd think jeans boots jacket and gloves at a minimum.  It's straight andsmooth but still concrete and never know when some maniac in other lane will try to wheelie the whole way...
