california Do you buy the hype ?

Recommended Posts

Well...  What do you think Bob ?

While other teams spent a lot of their practice time jetting, Carson Brown and AJ Catanzaro continued turning laps. Carson was the fastest qualifier on his TC 150 and took the 150cc class with AJ taking a close second, on a James Stewart tribute KX 125.

Both bikes were equipped with 38HV Lectron carbs. They were the fastest out of the gate, were able to triple where other bikes struggled, and consistently pulled the whoops faster than any other riders in the class. 

From AJ's Mechanic, "I was so lucky that the '04 KX125 we were running was equipped with a Lectron carb. While the other mechanics were twisting air screws and changing jets to compensate for the temp changes throughout the day, we were running PERFECT the day we showed up, morning through nighttime! 

In the 250 class, Cedric Soubeyras won the first bracket against Ryan Sipes on his Lectron equipped RM 250 before being knocked out by Ryan Dungey in the second bracket.

Bill's Pipes said this was the fastest RM 250 they've ever had on their dyno after comparing it to factory builds from the early 2000s.

It's 90% rider and 10% bike. Carburetion, within reason, is a small part of the 10%. So, no, I don't buy the hype.

Even the Riddler's equipment has better welds. That embarrassing Steve, looks like the little 8 year old Chinese girl who welded that hooked the Tig torch on that carb bell and pressed the pedal to full send, using a full rod of filler at the top and not stopping until it the blob reached full uglyness.

That bubble gum weld even holds the excess oil from the crankcase breather. The drain plug is on the other side and she was quarter full. 😳 😉

Is that the road racer 2 stroke?
