On July 15th, Rickey Gadson and nephew and protege Richard Gadson will arrive at Loring Air Force Base in Loring Maine for the LTA(Loring timing association) with 3 brand new Kawasaki 2011 ZX10's in 3 different configurations in an attempt to go after 7 records in multiple categories:
P/P stock pipe -open
All 3 bikes are equipped with Brock's Performance parts bolt ons(Brocksperformanceparts.com) and Brocks SLIP ON pipes, along with Bazaaz ZFI-QS with ZAFMs.
Reflashing of stock ECU to Euro specs by Guhl Motorsports, and fitted with Michelin power 1's.
But 1 of the 3 Kawasaki ZX10's (named Jasmine)will be outfitted with a full set of HotBodies motogp green gel bodywork and an airtech streamliner front fender to try to gain any advantage in aerodynamics. The same bike has had its cylinder head massage by Jim Gilnack of Competition CNC in the way of a CNC port on intake side only in an effort to do a step by step performance upgrade and document what gains each upgrade produces.
"I just arrived back in the country and have 2 days to rebuild "Jeronimo" to get ready for Loring, and make sure each of the 3 bikes are serviced, and geared properly". Jeronimo has 0 miles on it so its going to be interesting.
Me and my nephew Richard are excited but at the same time realize that there is a lot of weight on our shoulders considering it is his first time LSR racing, my 2nd time LSR racing and the ZX10's first chance to officially stretch its legs for the world to see.
On top of trying to break records in the 1000cc category, I will be making my 2nd attempt to break the MPS(modified partial streamliner)1600cc record on the Competetion CNC ZX14 which is currently set at 222mph.
"Jim has worked hard on his engine program for the 14 and has been succesful at developing more horsepower. His same bike we ran last year now makes 22hp more and is outfitted with airshifter and Data logging, some of the mandatory items needed to be succesful.
This weekend is going to be real interesting............stay tuned to my facebook and twitter page @rickeygadson and Rickeygadsondragracingschool on FB
