    i ran that track in reverse after the last race. a little confusing after running it all day the other way, but it's pretty cool. running downhill on the straight is pretty cool, but makes for some hard braking going into the corner.

    a high geared bike would probably wind out before reaching the end of it...

    The "infamous Safe" is considering coming and racing in
    the low power eBike class at Grange.

    Hey Safe
    There is another SoCal Motor Bicycle Race on June 9th

    However if you are Serious I would suggest getting to the
    first race on April 7th because if there isn't enough interest
    the < 1500 / 2000 watt class may be canceled.

    He even put some pedals on his bike. :D

    I want that bike. Wonder if Safe is interested in selling. Geez, I've been curious 'bout others bikes, but this one has so many concepts. Lo-kv single stage gear down motor, freewheeling chainring, and that fairing with everything tucked behind it.

    My buddy Strotter rides a 50 cc Honda and is coming with his
    2 sons that ride 35 cc Robin Subaru's.
    They were at the first SoCal race at Willow Springs last June.

    agk said that he is coming but not racing any 50 cc 4 strokes
    this race.

    www.affordablegokarts.com is sponsoring the race again and
    the good news is that Shane's knee has healed up so he will
    be riding his bike in the 11 hp class.

    Shane's son will be racing the 99 cc 4 stroke bike and I think he
    said it will be a 2 speed transmission.
    Would be great to have a 99 cc 4 stroke class if there were enough
    entries.
    Affordable Go Karts is going to concentrate on developing performance
    parts for the 99 cc Predator 4 stroke motor.

    Brian will be racing the very fast agk 4 stroke monsta bike and will
    have some competition from Chris ( www.TomahawkTuning.wordpress.com )
    on his very fast 14 hp moped.
    Who knows what other bikes will be in the Unlimited Class? liveforphysics?
    if he can finish a race without destroying his bike? :D

    Yes, nashmoto emailed me that he is going to be defending his
    50 cc 4 stroke title and is looking for some competition! :D
    Mind you he won a Sick Bike Parts 4 stroke shift kit last race so
    he was pretty happy about that.

    Nashmoto did say that beating all those 2 strokes and coming 5th
    was fun too! :)

    We can always see what everyone wants to do on race day. I don't
    have any preference and always gas and pedal on the starts.

    Safe says that his 1000 watt ebike is going 40 mph so you are going
    to have to step it up a bit?

    Looking forward to the next race and hoping there's more interest in the 49cc class. Either way it's too much fun to miss.
    Finally edited some video from the last race: http://blog.nashmoto.com/

    Man I wish I could do faster wheel work, lasing and truing takes me a day and a half but for the love of racing I'm doing it.
    I hope every ones pre-race bike work is moving along.
    If you're new to this stuff it can be an up hill battle. this is a from scratch build I've got going, a first for me. I think the .D.I.Y. is a good place for me in the hobby it's all one of, make it how you wont it and see what works next time how would I do it different stuff I love.

    don't feel too bad. my new racer has been a nightmare since day one. one thing's fixed, another breaks. it's all custom, and the there's still the guy at 7-11 who says, "my buddy has one just like yours..."

    drives me nuts, but it's a labor of love...

    Atleast you know how to lace wheels, I wish I knew how because I want to go from 26" to 24" but don't want to pay for the labor.
    I'm also moving up in class from 2 stroke to the 6.5hp 4-stroke but you can still race magrider xct2
