Well....hell w/the cough..I took the beast out yesterday to an open loamy dirt area where new houses are being built. WOW! 1st-3rd gear it is hard to keep the front wheel down. I have the 12oz flywheel on and that extra traction is amazing along w/the mod. I did a 2nd gear start and carried the front wheel until I shifted to 3rd and continued w/the wheel about 6inches off of the ground. Putting around in 2nd(idle is set higher now)just grab a handfull and up she comes. Easy adjustments can be made to the ac pump screw and delay screw if you leave the black cover off for some test runs, taking the coil out of the way helps also...just don't forget to put it back on! Too cool.
