It's Bull$hit that there's not a regular TV channel showing any of the AMA races. What a $hit show.

Wow man, congrats.

I hope your there, enjoying the sights, sounds, and above freezing weather. I went down to that really windy one a couple of years ago, the race that got shuffled and delayed because the air bags in the bus stop on the back straight were blowing loose. What a sight and experience that race is.

^Eslick seems to be able to get it up front before the finish line each lap. Lookin good.

It would be nice to see Zemke get the 600RR up in the mix up front.

Sucks that DiSalvo and Westby went down. Would've liked to see DiSalvo get on the box.

FYI, for future races, If you have an iPhone or iPad, get an AppleTV. It's only $99.00. I was able to watch the race on my 40" sony by sending the video to the Apple TV wirelessly from the iPad.

^^^ Sorry about the delay, I hadn't checked for replies since Sunday, but yeah that does sound exhausting, but in an adrenaline shooting out of your eyeballs way.

Sooooo, How absolutely f'ing cool is it to go completely flat out on those banked corners??

How did the race go, did you finish better than what you expected per budget?

I wonder if anyone has figured out what the downforce G's are in those banked corners at speed?

Also, WHAT'S YOUR OPINION on going to the 1000CC bikes for the 200 next year? Are they going to have a 600CC (And POS v-twin) 15 lap sprint race?

Yea Daytona is always exhausting! Being the first AMA event of the year, no one is ever really "ready!" We do get one CCS-FL round in and one CCS-SE round in before this, but we are still never really ready for Daytona! The track is so brutal on equipment!

I wasn't racing, I am the crew chief for a 2 rider team, we do SS, XR and SBK. I do geometry and electronics for the most part.

But yea, I have raced the ROC there for CCS. And yea, it's pretty wild! In CCS we run the long course, same course that the SS and Sportbike classes run. The banking is insane! Most riders actually get vertigo the first session or 2.

For me the toughest part was picking up the brake markers going into the back chicane. They are white letters on a black board. Hanging on the fence, VERY hard to see at 180-190mph!!!

Ugh.... Not really... We are running a new bike this yea because of sponsorship, new bike, new suspension, etc... And it's had a steep learning curve. Combine that with the fact that in Florida we have virtually NO off season, it makes for a tough time.

We had planned on racing our ZX10. The bike is sick! But we just haven't gotten all the bugs worked out yet. We've only had 3 events to ride it. First event the bike had a STUPID offset in it, 24! WTF?!?! So that event was a waste... Second event we had wanted to test a new shock link, because we felt the one that we had on the bike just wasn't cutting it... But we didn't have the other link. That event was mostly wasted. We spent it playing with ride heights, spring rates, etc... But we just weren't making big enough progress. Finally we get the link from Jeremy Toye and test it at JGP and now we are getting somewhere!

So we show up at Daytona and the first session on Thursday was just horrible, FREEZING cold, Dunlop had us running these STUPID high pressures... etc...

Later on we start getting some speed and now the QS isn't activating... And he (my rider) was complaining that the engine braking was acting strange... Like it would ramp up or down randomly. So I try to connect to it, I'll shorten the delay and lengthen the kill times on the QS and that should solve that. And I'll check out the engine braking map... Nope... Cannot see the Kawi ECU...

After screwing with it for a while, I grab Pacco, Mesa's electronics guy. I'm good friends with Mesa and his parents. So he unplugs from Stefanos bike and plugs into ours, nope... no go! Either it's the harness or the ECU. :(

Well if I can't fix the QS or the engine braking, we can't ride...

Well he had brought his 2011 GXSR 1000 just for the hell of it, without any intention of every taking it out of the trailer, but now... That's our only chance to qualify. So we pull it out. Problem is.... It's mapped for MR12, not Sunoco GARBAGE! But we have no HP! Dynojet did a pull and it was making 176. LOL Sounds like a lot, except when the top 10 are all 210 +++

When Reese passed him in race 2 Sean had a trap speed of 178 and Reese's was 192!!!

To be honest, I think it's impressive to even qualify!

So now the Kawi is getting a new harness and the GXSR is getting freshin up and mapped for Sunoco. And we hope to make a better show of it at Road America!!

Don't know, but it's a LOT! I had to move my shift lever down because it would suck my foot down and hit the QS!!! LOL

I like the idea of SBK being the premier class again, although if it's not on TV, who really cares???

My concern would just be with regards to Daytona. The literbikes KILL those tires on the banking. And riders want to push the limits for the win. Although I will say we had (or saw) zero problems with tires this weekend.

Although, they had us running stupid high pressures. So high that we were cold tearing the right side! But even when we kept dropping PSI, we never saw an issue. And we got down to 22 (from 27!!)

^^^ Sounds like fun anyway. I love the smell of racing gas. So much so I run it in the chainsaw and weed eater.

I'd love to be that close to racing. I helped out a friend of mine's dads vintage formula car team once. There's nothing like burnt racing gas fumes, coffee, and a wrench in your hand at 6:30 AM.
