Thank's for the #'s man. You don't have to worry about 12 hater's

here. This board is totally different than labusa's.



I am also curious as to why the 89 octane instead of 92/93. Also,

if you don't mind would you post some of the 00/01 #'s so we can

see the difference?



Stock tire's?

Excellent #`s Rickey. Man, it`s true you can really fly.



Just wondered if you could answer a question about rear tire pressure. I hear so many different opinions. Some say they go as low as 5lb some say 25-30lb. Whats your advice.



Good luck now and in the future.

As far as tire pressure goes:

The theory is, "The more you can get away with the faster MPH you will run". More tire pressure = less rolling resistance

I normally run 30-35 psi if the track conditions will hold it.

The new 12's come with the new Dunlop 208's. (nice tire)



As far as 89 octane gas, I learned along time ago with the old 12's and 9's, that they like less octane, but 87 was not enough.

Guys:

The best part about my day at the track yesterday,(besides winning the local points race and pocketing 500.00 bucks), was that, out of the 13 passes I made yesterday, including 1 to 2 dry hops per run, I never had to adjust the clutch, not even once!!!!!!!

I will try my other 2002 12R (Red) this weekend with the same setup except with stock gearing just to see the difference.

As a point of reference my 12 that I ran this past weekend is "Candy Thunder Blue".

Have you run the 00/01s and if so how do they compare??



It was nice meeting you in Daytona Beach. Here's a photo for your scrap book. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/tongue.gif ALT=":b">







And for the record, I wasn't referring to the Mack Handbook, I was adding another chapter for those guys I was with!!! <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/pimp.gif ALT=":hat">
