Fail stage

A "Fail stage" ruined whatever chances I had. "Fail stage" is when you roll back out of the stage light after it being lit, that happens not necessarily due to being nervous but rather over focused, forgetting about the possibility when it has not happened in the last zillion runs and being overcautious not to deep stage...and with a springer front end and launch RPM getting up, the wheel bounces alot, enough to clear the beam....anyway I lost.
Ran a time slip after the finals and managed a 6.65, better but still..........

It was real nice to see "Columbo" back, normally to busy to attend  and used to wheelie down on a Shovel chopper style with some unmanagable homebuilt Injection system, now he turned up with a well built bike to the latest numbers carburated Evo, and took it all the way to the final with a best of  6.124/182.6 but aginst the remaining Dane, Marcus who ran a best of 5,613/203.9 most anybody on this planet is runner up. 15 year Old Marcus will end up with the championship this year. 
Next for me is "Blacksmith" Pre-73 this weekend, overpowered slingshots and some real crazy wonderful people, insane Norwegians and a good track.

Well, overpowered slingshot would be a good description, but your wheelbase is shorter, way shorter...

The shorter wheelbase the more unstable car, BUT... my car seems to go very straight. Lucky me :)
