What times are you running in 1/8 mile? Motor? Setup? Gearing?
My 350PV with mx tires ran a [email protected] I think it was. I thought it was pretty slow. I did spin pretty bad and my gearing was way off. I was pinned about 3/4 down the track. 15/39 I think it was.

I would say try lowering your rear sprocket to a 36 and start in first gear if you didn't.

Yeah when I go back Ill have a 36t on it. I tried 2nd and 1st. The quicker time came starting in 1st. Im trying to find some used TT tires also to help with traction. Watching the vid it looked like I spun for a good half second or so before I hooked.

Nice runs. That is one stout 370. Looks like you have had plenty of seat time on the bike to run it like you do.

Is bobby still riding?

if you are talking about Turbo bobby- yes- he was out there with us- he was on the other R on the vid- He was a little nervous at first- but that soon passed and he is hooked...lol

I have at least 6 years seat time on the R- but on that bike on the asphalt it was the 2nd time-
I usually drag race a banshee on the pavement- shhhh- i know-- i wear a helment so no one see me---lol

Glad bobby is still at it. I used to love watching drag. Not many people on this earth can ride quite like he does. When was the last time you guys have been out to little sahara?
