    Looks like a bunch of fun to me! What was the time on the pass? My bleary eyes couldn't catch it...

    Had a ball, Joe brought his 2 drag kats (8 second beasties) and with Drillit and myself, we had 4 kats on show.

    Derek was just getting to grips with getting a launch and his last one (the video) was a cracker, he ran a 10.9 with a reaction time of 0.055, a great run.

    I'm still coming to grips with launching my kat but I was starting to get a handle on it on my last run, the only time I beat Derek was that run on the video, I got a reaction time of 0.015, I ran 11s all night which is the best I've ever done at Willowbank.... still not as quick as I ever was 33 years ago at Castlereagh.. but I was lighter then....

    Joe was just doing some testing for the upcoming nostalgia drags comp, unfortunately, the blue kat had a battery problem and 'failed to proceed' later in the night (he runs 2 batteries to get 24volt starting... and they need that with the compression).

    Unfortunately, the planets have to line up again before I can do another night like this....

    Well done Derek and a great green light, looks like fun had by all and that is a good time for the Gixer and she revs nicely through the gears.

    Something along the lines of GSX711SEFR would be pretty close to your model Derek?
