The Man Cup Motec Spring Nationals started out fantastic. Frankie and I went down a week early to visit my daughter Jacqui and her new fiance Jeff. Their new home was very comfortable and Jeff offered me space in his garage to finish the over the winter updates to our tried and true Red, White, and Blue CBR1000rr. The changes proved worthy of all of the time. In testing we recorded the quickest consistent times of 1.16 in the 60′ and 3.04 to the 330′. This was going to be a great weekend! Mother nature had other plans as we dodged rain drops until mid day Sunday when it was decided that it would not be possible to get the race done.
We are going to Dyno Dynamics next week with the new bike and the new for 2015 methanol motor. These changes proved to be much more than just changing the fuel in the tank and upgrading the Fuel Lab system. We decided on new higher compression JE Pistons, Star modified the head for the larger volume of fuel and air, Falicon made the 3mm stroker crank, Millenium prepared the new dry block cases, and Robinson ProCut a new trans for the all new motor. We could not have done all this without the tremendous effort of our two new sponsors. TIAL Sport made a complete new turbo system with integrated wastegate, cast header, cool scoop and more! My friend Kurt Sikora from days gone by has been back into racing and has been invaluable with Sikora Precision’s fabrication of so many of the parts on the new bike and many on the old bike. Microblue Racing coated everything that rotates and Honda is back again with Pro Honda Oils and Chemicals keeping the metal parts coated with the HP4 20-50 racing oil. Mark Harrel of Mobiledynomometer.com will provide his dyno and time as Steve Nichols of Dyno Dynamics works his magic on the tuning. Stay tuned for the next race report after the upcoming NHDRO Spring opener at Indy on May 15-17th.
