it was summit ET PRO.

the 60' hurt me all day...1.57 was the worst 10.73 @125

all the rest were in the 60's and a 59 (but had the throttle stop working)

BTW chuck 3400 race weight now, down from 3550 a year ago.

love the HOOD!

MPH up about 1

What are you running for front end travel? (how much from ride height) Would sure be nice to get you away from your traction issues, I believe you have a solid tenth/tenth and a half waiting for you at that MPH.
