I just though I'd have to share this with you...

Coming home last night, with EWP fully in and keeping temnperatures nice and low, I was registering nearly 2 bar of instantaneous peak boost
. This generally came around whilst flooring it in third gear from about 3000rpm. What a take off!

(For reference, my avatar is at 1.7 bar)
Can't wait to see what she does on the rolling road tomorrow...

No, but it goes through the "peak" so quickly in 2nd that it's hardly there...

I hope the gearbox is good for a while yet... I've not long had it rebuilt by Abbott!!

Erh, no normal bike would touch either an Xtr (Westfield) or Radical on the track.

Both hit 60 in 3 seconds and can corner rather faster than any bike. The Radical can give an F3 car a run for its money! They do share something with bikes - their engines!

Slight problem, though. Radicals are a track only tool and forget trying to get over any speedramp in an XTR!
