Faster Times at HPT
« on: June 21, 2004, 09:21:46 am »
Was everyone going alot faster this time around at HPT?  I didn't know if it was my set up, experience, or track conditions/changes that made me so much faster.  I dropped 8 seconds off my best.  I know Johnny Moore dropped almost 6 or better.  Was everyone faster?  What do you atribute it to?  Warmer Weather?  Combination of everything?

I know Amatures can hack alot more time than Experts do to the experts being closer to the edge of traction etc...  But I think I saw alot of experts going considerably faster there also.

Moore was cooking this weekend... something has most DEFINITELY clicked with him since I last raced against him at BHF a few months ago.  Good for him!

I had never been there before, so I don't know what has changed.  I was pretty consistent 1:36s, with a few 1:35.7's thrown in.  Started to get the bike dialed in, but wound up going the wrong way with it at first (oops!) so I lost some "positive" track time.  I'm pretty sure I hit on a good idea to try for Sunday (hoping to get down into the high 34s) but the rain and crummy weather scared me away.  With DanO's still-injured wrist, and VIR next weekend, we decided to call it quits, pack it up and leave around noon.  No reason to risk crashing at a bumpy slick track in the rain.  Was nice getting home at 1am instead of our originally-planned 8am.

I'm sure I went faster, but then again I couldn't have gotten much slower!   ;D

I was having fun in LWSS yesterday until we got cut short by the oil.  At least I was keeping Fox in sight this time.

lol no kidding...it takes some suspension work to get around that track, but once you get dialed in it's not that bad.  Thanks for the comment Bobby I worked my butt off last weekend for 2 5ths, 2 4ths, and a 3rd.  :'(

Hopefully I can make it up at MAM.

So does Johnny Moore race Midwest, and Great Plains?

No, never got the bike going fast enough to crash it...
Hell, the bike never made it to redline in 2nd gear  :P

And thanx for reminding me about the shock... ;D

The frame was snapped, the #3 rod was dangling from a hole in the cases, and what was left had been consumed by fire.  I said, "Hey, we've got all night!"
