Excellent race killer! Congrats on your well earned victory!

I would like to know the difference in bikesetup for the RD350 for the drag and track?

For drag all you care about it straight line performance, and you dont need to fine tune suspension for cornering, for track suspension setup is very crucial. For drag your choice of tires are focussed on a larger contact patch while the bike is upright, its the opposite for track. A drag engine will have a narrower and sharper powerband high in the rpm range while for track you need a wide useable powerband. These are the most basic differences

Brillo job killer anna. Now, when will we see your RD in action?

Although if memory serves me right, you need a seat don't you? Or do you plan on flying around the track with a blue fibre glass plate under your bum?

Talking

Ya Killer I did see u on the way back to B'lore on your black Apache without the tail lamp... That was u right?

The team FRK had a bad experince last time on the way to the Goa rally when one driver crashed (cant mention names) and broke his leg so nobody drives at night now. Its always early in the morning when we're going for an event and afternoon when we're coming back.

I saw u ride.. Initially when i saw the bike in the pits i thought to myself it looks like just another race RD since it just had the normal cardboard competition number but once it was on the track and u rode it really well i was pretty confident it was the winner..

But then nothing in life ever goes smoothe does it.. I saw u struggling to shift the gear after C2 and for a moment i thought that was the end of the race for you but then you pulled something off and got it going to win the race.. Great riding.. Cheers
