ROCKET?

Recommended Posts

not yet.Mark's off from wed. on so we'll see if its enough time to get it done b4 race.He did take out the single to table at bottom but its a silly thing he put in(IMO).He moved a take off up about 15ft.Small take off at that to a sloping downside then a small table-top.Just a smaller version of the old table.Its a tiny bit challenging only because it was tough to get straight b4 hittin it.No biggie.Just means that left hand side will get used more.

Oddly enough - why would he change that if he intends to reverse the course? WOuld that not be going the opposite way now? UNless he doens't plan on reversing the course ENTIRELY.... :cry:

Dad liked the change after we did it a few times, and I love it. IF you hit it on the right side, you can "semi-seat bounce" it and land on the downslope easily and then HAMMER the table and blitz up the hill.

It is a slower section now I think, but I like it. You can G-out on the take-off easily if you clear it. I wouldn't mind eventually trying to land on the table. :cry: I think if you could get a heck of a seat bounce, you MAY be able to do it. I have to actually drift up the take-off to clear to the downslope. I wonder if you cut cross-track, from full left to take off on the full right, if you wouldn't get enough of a run to do just that... :cry:

Always thinking - always thinking.

well that guy # 75 on a 4 strk honda Warren Cinsey faced that table trying it out after Mark built it and busted up his face on his bars and he's a super fast guy.Not sure what he was trying to do-he either over shot the first part or if he was :cry: trying to land on the table or trying to clear it.

YZ250fpegged, Im thinking of switching from a 450 to a 250f for next year, but Im worried about jumps out of corners. The finish double at Rocket is a good example of what Im talking about, Do you have any trouble with it on your 250f?
