My excuse: There was a desert rat that ran right across the bow of the Suzuki as I grabbed second gear. And being the animal lover that I am, I lifted, picked the critter up, deposited him over the plywood fence, re-mounted my steed, and still crossed the line just a few tenths aft of Burns.



How's that?

Re: What tires?

When we did the lap times, it was late enough in the day that we had the 180-section on it and, most importantly, we knew the track. Enough, anyway. No sense taking lap times when you don't know where you're going, eh?

At the strip we left the same track tires fitted since they are stickier than what comes stock. Of course, we corrected rear ride height/pre-load as best we could to compensate for any changes in the tire's circumference.

As for the difference in lap times between the 190-section rear and the 180-section, it was infinitesimal, though the 180 let us run for more than 5 laps before getting scary on us.
