So, I went ahead and ruined the Turbo Busa.

I tried to ride it the other day on high boost. 21 psi, making around 345 HP on a +4 extended stock style arm.

Fuck. That.

All it does is spin and when and if it grabs, it tries to throw me off of it

So here's a +12 DME arm, drag tire, revalved shock, and a 11,500 pound tensile strength EK drag chain (I put that on like 20 minutes ago, it's a Bluetooth chain in the pics).

If it ever stops raining, I could go test it out.

I fixed the seepy oil line on the scavenge pump, installed a cleanable oil filter, fresh oil. None of the local tracks are open yet to get some times, and Rockingham is redoing their first 800' so I won't be able to get a 1/4 mile time until March. Hoping for 4.9's @ 150 in the 1/8 mile

It doesn't do shit but drag. I never use it at the track. Seriously, one single front brake stops a bike from 200, no problem. Grudge bikes hitting 235 on a single brake. We have long shut downs on most of these tracks

Some events require it, I have to take off like 5mm off the bracket and refit, but I'll push the caliper in all the way, so the pads don't drag
