Drag Race Only Application

If you were using your bike in a drag race only application and wanted the ecu to only see one gear which one would it be. I've been told that 6th would be the best because of the way the ecu is programed to apply timing and fuel. What is your opinion?

Why not just use a T.R.E. ?

If a TRE would lock the timing down and lock the fuel curve so it would not self tune against me that would be fine. Then on the other hand if there is a cheaper and more simple way to get it done without adding yet more electronics to an already cramped and overloaded total loss system then I'm for that route. In the end being more consistant and being able to slow the bike down so we can run TG is what we are after.

I believe it would be more consistant and easier to tune if the timing and fuel were not being changed by the ecu.

NO not exactly. It's a 2x4 with stock valves,cams,etc,etc. Last time out we were running from the high 7's to 8 teens and could not slow the bike down consistantly to be able to run TG. Any helpful advice is appreciated.

Your first question sounds like you want more speed, your second question you want to go slower? lol

More speed would be welcome if it were consistant. We have just completed installing a throttle stop to take care of the too fast part, now if we can get a grip on the consistency maybe we could be competitive.
