Great job, Thanks for the write up and videos. I read every word and watched the videos from start to finish. You guys were flying. The R3's are showing their potential and you are making us all proud to own R3's. How do the top 300 cc lap times compare to the 600's and liter bikes at Chuckwalla? How much faster would you be on an R6?

Thanks! The R3s are definitely showing their potential, people can't ignore it and more and more are showing up and getting built into race bikes...

Here's the lap records at Chuckwalla:

Right around 2:00 on a 250, just under on a 300, I'm still in the 2:05-2:06 range.
lap records are in the 1:45-1:47 range for the 600 and 1000cc bikes. Chuckwalla is unique in that there is very little straight away, it's mostly big open fast corners, so the 600s go just as fast as the big bikes. When I was on my R6, I was around 1:57. The R3 is definitely making me faster :)

Loved the Hammer video - That's what lightweight racing is!! Good stuff.

I know Brandon Fosbinder and Duncan Bines from racing USBA - again, good vid and thanks for posting for those who think the R3 is a "kids bike".
