Awesome job as always pat. does that fairing put you in a different class?
Hi Baird,
The fairing would allow us to run in a partial stream line class and should give us 10-15% more top end. Interesting thing is we already ran faster than the partial stream line record last year by 2 mph without a fairing. Sometimes the easiest way to win a race is by just keeping the machine in one piece. Like they say, you can't win if you don't finish.

That thing sure looks slick! when I saw the image of the fairing by its self I could never imagine what it would look like when installed, but this surpasses my expectations.

Do you have any estimates on you max speed with the fairing? I hope it will make a significant improvement.

From what I am told the fairing will be good for 10-15% increase in speed. That would put this bike at 80-85 mph.
