yeah the guy is from england and this was the first time he ever raced. could have fooled me because he ran on his dial and cut a decent light for a slow bike. He actually is a cool guy. He wanted me to post that race on youtube when he saw my helmet cam. He said I know you got my whole pass on tape :s24:

What camera was that?
its the contour hd. I got it set on action hd which is 60fps.

I was actually really impressed with it. believe it or not I actually used it to tune my clutch friday because I noticed where it started to spin.I though it was spinning at the hit but it was going out about 15 feet before it broke loose :grind: And I noticed I was actually lifting before the finish line on my runs so Thats why I had such low MPH. Also One pass I had it on my gauges so I'd see what rpm's it at ect.....

I like it

Hey James, that English guy said to tell you that the .165 decent light he cut was the slowest he had cut in the two days. Most were .02s down to .017 he didn't want to red light. He said it was nice to meet you.:2thumbs:

Hey Neal, he wishes you well in your racing career and sends you one of these :finger7: and one of these :whatever:

Sam, :hysterical:

Old guy, white suit

sun bleached lol

Sam is a great guy to talk to. I met him at Piedmont Dragway about 3 years ago while he was on a vacation to the States. I had my old Honda CB750F at that race and they were amazed that anyone still raced one. Sam competes in sprint racing at some tracks in England- not sure what the hell sprint racing is all about. Last year Sam found an old 750 Hondamatic street bike and they decided to make it into a full out dragbike. Notice i said Hondamatic- it doesn't have a hand clutch but uses a torque converter like a car. If you noticed any videos of the bike you can see how slow the 60' is on the pass. These things were not built for dragracing so Sam and crew have done an excellent job of modifying and tweeking this thing for race purposes. This bike build was literally an international effort. Sam lives in England, the motor was built by a guy in New England (USA) and the chassis was set up by 2 fellas from Atlanta. Parts were sent from all over with advice coming from every corner of the world through a Honda SOHC forum. IF you guys have a few moments you can follow the build from beginning to end here:CB750A Street ET bracket drag bike. A year to build it.

The bike is still being sorted out and will be put on a dyno this weekend to figure out why its not 60 footing any better. Keep in mind when Sam bought the bike and took it to the first AMA dragbike race last yeat it only ran an 18.25. Its now in the high 12 second zone and dropping. I know thats slow as molasses to all of you but for an old school bike that was designed as an automatic with a 2 speed transmission that drop in ET is impressive.

Keep your eyes out for that old Englishman in the white suit- he's coming to a a track near you soon:s24:. If anyone should be embarrased about racing against this bike it should be Boo Brown- he got put out on sunday by the old Hondamatic we call Samauto:hysterical:.
