    Question about the track, vir


    Compared to Loudon, how much faster are the speeds at this track? I want to use the YZ450 but i'm topped out at Loudon before any of the braking markers so if the speeds are any higher, it'd probably be a waist? I can add 1 tooth on the front if i cut the plastic chain glide off but i don't really want to do that, and it's not gonna add all that much.
    I hate the thought of digging out the W and putting it on the track

    Question about the track, vir

    I topped out at 145 at VIR on a TRACKDAY. I could easily have hit 150 on the RC51 on the North course.

    Question about the track, vir

    Ok, so it's not a tard track Guess i'll have to prep the W again..

    If anyone wants, i can tow my enclosed trailer and i can fit 2 bikes in the trailer and 2 bikes in the back of my truck, and will have no problem carring 4 people and their gear.
    I'll be leaving from my house and returning to my house so getting yourself and your stuff to and from my house on time is something you'll have to workout ahead of time.
    The fuel costs will be divided equally with the number of people that come with me, that's all i'm asking. No smoking in my truck either
