Cool vid. :)

The throttle is too quick just off idle. The driver doesn't have enough controll of the very small power area. It was pushing going in and then when he picked up the throttle it was too much power with too little pedal travel and that made it snap loose. Like driving with a kill switch, it snapped loose because he couldn't apply little enough power.

Throttle linkage will upset the whole car setup because a driver will develope defensive habits to avoid the problems it causes if it is too quick. A driver will drive into causing a push to avoid spinning and eventually set the car up to push too much in order to avoid the snap loose a quick throttle can cause.

X2, Also looked like too much scrubbing speed going into the corners instead of braking, and too low of an entrance into the corners. All that adds up to a tight car.

Kinda reminded my of a YZ490 I had, throttle was on or off.

Which quite often led to the rider being on or thrown off.

these are dwarf cars completely different than a legends car and we don't run spec motors .....we run a max of 1250cc's displacement . alot of the teams build wild stroker motors like 1175 cc GSXR's and R1's and bring compression up to close to 14.1:1 . on our old R1 motor we had the crank lightened alot like almost 3lbs then add aluminum rods along with lightening the clutch basket with billet components ,that motor acted like a light switch with power on or off very quickly . with using a R6 ignition we would hit the rev limiter at 14,600 about mid straight in 3rd gear and the stock R1 rev limit was 11,600 .alot of the teams especially during nationals is not uncommon to build a $12k motor and it would be junk by the end of the 3 day event . we've got a R1 that the oil temps got so hot it blackened the big end of the rods and a friend of ours has a GSXR that windowed the block and snapped the crank in half


we've always joked around with putting a built busa motor in one of our cars and going to a larger 12" wide r/rear ...that would be a wild ride !!!

reason for the quick throttle response is lightened cranks and aluminum rods and billet clutch baskets
