Missed 'ya Dave. I charged up a passle of 6S lipos and had 'em handy for you at Grange. You had best clomb on to those lipos soon, I started to chunk the $750 lipos into the dumpster at Grange but hesitated. The 10 lipo bricks have negative value to me, just taking up room in my smallish work shop.
There were +-39 bikes. MBR went with simplified scoring, thank goodness, and the DNF's didn't get counted. 11hp class turned 1m:18sec fast lap; 2stroke 1m:23s; mid4stroke 1m:24s; and <50cc 1m:27sec. The 25cc shuttlebuddy's were surprisingly swift, would've lapped the typical <50cc <2K electric, which is why I support racing by top speed (thus enter Ryan's dyno). The entry level street class has been predominatedly 35cc SubaruRobins, then next race mo-peds, next race stock ChinaGirls, last race shuttlebuddy & nuvinci drive. Too many changes from race to race and a hassle trying to adjust to those.
The mope guys, along with shuttlebuddy http://shuttlebuddy.com/
team of ?5 kept the sport alive to race another day. The 2 bikes in front of me were a mo-ped & a honda cycle with a pedal kit that the shuttlebuddy team sells. He rode his little cycle single gear (3rd). I had a stutter in my 9Cont pulling out of turns, but hit 43-4mph in the straight. Lots of folks talking about building and running in the mid-size4stroke. I like it because you can still pedal out of corners, the bikes look clean, classy and functional enough to take fun rides on.
As a proving ground, hard to best this type of racing. The 2strokes have proven most competitive with the $1500+ "ArrowCycle" modded ChinaGirls edging a past dominate Morini; the 2 took turns setting fast lap records. Every class is getting faster, more competitive. While electrics are jumping in around California and the country in various categories, we're sitting on the sideline when it comes to the smaller, commuter size e-bikes.
