Update

I went out tonight to run some 1/4 mile with the Beltronic… here’s the results:

1) 16.22 @ 85.2 (not sure about the validity of this one)
2) 16.40 @ 83.4
3) 16.50 @ 82.7
4) 16.55 @ 82.6
5) 16.55 @ 82.7
6) 16.60 @ 81.8
7) 16.85 @ 82.2
8) 16.98 @ 80.5
9) 17.02 @ 79.0

So, on average 16.6, right where I thought I should be.

I launched at 2500rpm and shifted at 5500rpm (fall to 4000rpm on the following gear). I’ve also always finished in 4th.
I have no idea how and what I did to finish in 3rd at the track… the rpm tonight was climbing too much to stay in 3rd all the way.

I can’t wait to get a better official time at the track. It might have to wait until next spring though, the track season is near the end.
