They're the Barker duals. I havnt had the chance to dyno them against the other two. I do have access to a ugly stick and will be dynoing the two, but havnt yet. They seem kinda small for a bigger motor (especailly compared to the ugstick), but they seem to work alright.

It ran a 4.42 on the jusice at BFD last year. But this year its a complete new build (bigger and stronger). Due to lots of bad luck, such as my jockey getting hurt pretty bad (no bad luck with the bike), weve only made it back to BFD once this year. Its best so far this year is 4.55 on motor, straight off the trailer. Because of more bad luck that day (LOL) we didnt get to make many passes during tnt. My goal is to get back there soon and take a whole day to see if we cant get that 4.55 any better, which I think we can. Once we do that, than we'll turn the juice on and see what it can do.

Thanks Elliot, its still somewhat of a hybrid at this point, so its hard to say what its capabilties are. IMO, Ive got the best builder on my side and the best jockey on the bike. So the rest is up to me. We'll find out what it can do on the weekend of Oct 24. Maybe Ill flop and make a fool of myself, or maybe the bike will be impressive.

I cut the sub frame down to the main supporting bars. Then took the battery box, cut all the remaining bars off it and took it and the sub frame to my local welding shop and told them where I wanted it mounted.

As far as lightening the frame, get a good 4" grinder and saazall, LOL. Cut off everything that doesnt need to be there. Brackets, gussets, supports. You can eliminate a ton of weight with a good chromoly swingarm, and a aluminum Drag Axle. I reccomend JJ&A.

Swing Arm - Damion Cole with Black Label Raing
JJ&A Axle - Jeff Ross

The A1 A2 cams are decent cams, but I wouldnt call them great. If you want to go all out with a drag bike, you can do alot better for cams. The two biggest DS guru's out there are Eric Oldham (Mr Horsepower), and Jeff Ross (THEBOM). I personally go through OMW racing which is Mr Horsepower, but THEBOM Racing will take care of you as well.
