R&D and Rain
The NHDRO race in Indianapolis this weekend was forecast for the beautiful weather right up until we got there on Friday. Friday’s test session had great weather and we got to test the new Maxx-Race ECU. The Race combines everything they had on the V-1 with the expander box in one small ECU. In all my years of racing, have never had an ECU that was easy to navigate until the Maxx. Even wiring the bike was easy as all the wires have printing every 9 inches as to what they are for.
Saturday's weather dawned beautifully, but by the second round of qualifying, we heard rain was coming for Sunday and NHDRO might try and get one round of eliminations on Saturday night. The track was tight but we had some tuning issues getting the bike to move off the line. Going down track the bike ran like a bat out of hell. Shifting was seamless with the new Robinson 1-4 auto. Even fifth and sixth shifted smoothly requiring a very short kill time. No ProStreet eliminations occurred Saturday night. Sunday we woke up to light rain which eventually became heavier. NHDRO made the decision to finish the race during qualifying of the final race in Indy September 30-Oct. 1st. Hope we see you there.
