I dont know anybody at these things so I dont know if all the bumps in the track effected everyone or not.

Simons was there with his full bodied Apex and ran 158mph faster than every other lay down, alky burning deal by a bunch
ah, if you even have to bump off the gas a little bit for any reason you can toss a bunch of mph off right there. a huge side wind can scrub mph pretty easy.
simons sled has the advantage of suspension and wieght vs the open mods, he can handle a couple inches of movement in the ice, a lay down is pretty screwed with bumps.

Well thats kinda what I was thinking Madcow. Hence the reason Im not really up in arms about it. It is what it is. I had hoped for more, but realize racing all my life, conditions are everything.

I wish I knew a few people there to talk to them and see what they were doing. But because of the conditions everyone was hustling and nobody really standing around.

I hope to run it again at the one Ace put up just to see. I have contacted Ulmer and asked him for a few reference points on where he wants it RPM wise etc. I could be way off.

Its possible the distance got shorter because of conditions, it felt short for 1000 feet but then again I was pretty busy trying to keep the thing straight.

a 1000' run doesnt take very long from the drivers seat.

Well after chatting with Allen Ulmer he is saying IM not pulling near enough RPMs. Possibly the IQ suspension change may have done it, different angle, bends etc pulling some RPMs out of it.

I could be down 600rpms, but I didnt get a good look on the ice. Maybe tomorrow I can get it back on the ice and make a few runs just to see what RPMs Im pulling.

Then this week I will take a few things down and just ensure bearings are OK, clutches are cleaned, etc - nothing major but just go over it to ensure nothing out of the ordinary sticks out at me.

I dont know how much difference gaining that 600rpms back may do - but dont know for sure until I get it on the ice. On hard packed, with skis NOT touching the ground it was pulling 10,400

never say never, get a pluged carbed and you will burn a piston.

Another quick story about riding with Harry on friday since we are talking about racing.

We were running down a hardpacked road and I pulled up beside Harry on my little 500 and we nailed it, I did not see Harrys hood til I hit 100 on the dream meter. He said I got the jump, but I told him stormy should have smoked me long before that.

This was just after he burried stormy, the next time we stopped Harry was pouting like a little bitch. I asked him what happend back there he said that thing is quick.

500cc twin vs a 800 triple... that 500 wont probably do past 80, and your saying the storm couldn't run it down?

Dont know.... will go over it the next few weeks (Im out of the country for a while so wont be doign anything) and make sure everything is good, clutches, alignment, offset, track alignment etc..... might just be a traction issue.

Im hoping to see what the other Apex ran to compare, maybe it was 3-4mph faster from the mods and just the conditions kept me down.

I think the new suspensin is robbing some RPM's. As stated I think its down about 600rpms, but cant verify that yet.

Yeah, thats Mark.

I bought the sled from his neighbor, but Mark sold it to him when he bought the '02. So it was his at one time.

Your going out of the country?? When and for how long??

Heading up on Friday.

You mean Harry was "had"?? Come on was it really a mile headstart?? Tell us the truth, Harry never saddle the 800 mill, he was drinkin' a beer!!!! Wait a second, you both lined them up for real, and, and, damn it Harry shit his bibs, when he seen your holeshot!!!
