    Quicktoy ...Tired...

    Don’t think Jason DiSalvo can’t be up front too.

    Not if he's on Michelins again. Hope they have him on a rear tire that will survive around Daytona

    So what would the tire of chose for the 200 ?
  4. R1M370

    Dunlop or Pirelli. Michelin is a great tire but Daytona is hell on them. Times above 2 mins not so bad but under 2 mins they start taking a beating. For me a Michelin rear is good for one 6 lap sprint race @1:53's on my R1.

    Damn only 6 laps... ishhh…

    Will stick with Dunlops then.
    Anyway bike is set-up for Dunlops, so don't want to start from scratch to find the optimal settings with another brand.

    I have traction control or slide control kicking in thru NASCAR 4 and the tri oval at Daytona. Data from my bike shows slide control turning on (box on yellow line in top right) in NASCAR 4,,, 178 mph, 5th gear, 14k rpm, at 60° of lean angle. Daytona is hell on tires and bikes LMAO. Rear tire spins up alot around there.

  7. Some people adjust that stuff out due to the amount of banking as lean angle is relative to the earth and not the track. Haven’t looked at the rules for the 200 as far as what units you can run but if you can even go by sector there is a lot you can adjust out.

    Yeah I know its really only 30* or so of bike lean angle and the rest is just the steep banking adding it up to 60*+ lean angle, just looks cool on the data lol. My only adjustment is being a bitch and rolling out the gas in some spots :crackup:

    Well Wyman & Pirelli won the the thing last year and also the fastest lap. And Mesa has the track record on his 1000 with the long P, so...

    Michelin has Daytona spec rears. Disalvo ran em last March with zero issues on the tire we figured would be "the one", and finished 10th or 11th ?
    I ran em in October and went faster than i've ever gone in 16 years around Daytona on my old ass bikes. And my old ass me. :) They will be really good. :)

    Whoever wins the race, I'm sure Yamaha will likely be happy, haha....

    It's not up to date... dates of 02/08/2020, if you took it from CCS site.
    Saw it earlier today and it was dated of the 8th.

    The Italian that raced last October is suppose to participate as well and I don't seem to see his name.

    I'm there, #16... :D I is stoked !!!

    Hoping Kawi can make a good showing. Maybe Farrell will be able to run up front.

    Barney is riding the bike Corsi was supposed to ride. @MELK-MAN can probably shed more light, but Corsi signed with the MV Moto2 team for 2020, so doing the 200 may be a conflict for him.

    Slick has posted somewhere that he will be running the 200.

    No Honders? *sadface*

    Then again, no Triumphs either. If someone can make a go of it on a Duc you'd think...ah well.

    this is correct.

    Almost forgot all about this, aside from DiSalvo needing 2 engines to finish the race how could be forget this. Too bad brake lever guards weren't mandated earlier.
