    Tak was the Man that day till the final, when he blew it up, but all day he was unstopable.

    That pass was nowhere near the fastest. It's fast, but Larry (Spiderman) McBride shuts that little number down.

    Larry was the first bike in the 5 second range ever. Then he pushed a 5.80

    At the very first race this year McBride pulled a 5.79 at 235mph.


    The fastest pass in the quarter has nothing to do with mph, it's all in the time.

    Fastest and quickest are two different things. Fastest=mph, Quickest=E.T.

    No arguing that a 5.89 is quicker than Tak's number, but the speed is what I was talking about.

    In 2006 Larry ran 248mph in the quarter, but the speed did not set the record pass, ET did.

    If you're not living close to the edge, then you're taking up too much space.
    Fast is easy. Quick is hard.

    I was in Richmond at the top end of the track last year to see McBride run a 5.82 at 242. To appreciate the speed you have to be on the big end of the track. He passed us, then the sound caught up. Simply unbelievable.
