    I'll defer to Nikola on that one, but I do know that Buell's had a helluva time passing sound at our track. They had to do all sorts of tricks to get it to pass, and then it ran like crap.

    It can only race in that class if it's slower than a 748 Ducati. That's the unwritten rule. :devil:

    Yep, talk to Olivier Spilborgs, Darren James, and Chad Gibson. Ov and Darren frequently got meatballed and Chad started to towards the end too.
