Episode 11 – Gixzilla Advanced Trackside Tuning

After a successful 9.19@156.03 MPH initial dragstrip outing with Gixzilla, Brock makes a few changes from lessons learned and waits for Ohio’s oppressive summertime heat and humidity to subside a bit. After a few weeks of even more heat combined with rain on test day(s,) Brock decided to invite rider, Mike Davis (200 lbs./ 90.7 kg), to attend a predicted rain-free weekend at the Xtreme Dragbike Association (XDA) Fall Nationals held at Maryland International Raceway (MIR) in Mechanicsville, MD – an 8 hour drive from the Brock’s Performance home base in Dayton, OH. Mike certainly wasn’t finished after his initial performance on Gixzilla, and Brock had a stack of gearing and other performance-enhancing tuning techniques and goodies to help both bike and rider go quicker and faster. The XDA crew is known for their amazing track prep and MIR’s actual elevation is only 80 ft. above sea level compared to Kil-Kare’s 803 ft. elevation. Brock’s intentions are to let Mike ride Gixzilla until he looks him in the eye and says… “That’s a fast as I can go at stock wheelbase on this bike.” Did it all work out? Find out now…

We hope you enjoy 2017 GSX-R1000 S2B: Episode 11 (P1) – Gixzilla Advanced Trackside Tuning.
