That’ pretty good knowledge, Chris. Yes, Paul Russell won once with Pi and the 25lb penalty. But never with a stock Honda. It was modified with stock ignition.
Jommy, thanks for what you said. Yes, seat time, hubs, alignment, etc are more important than power. But there is nothing wrong with working on ALL aspects of getting faster. That includes little details like ignition timing.
I have read that too much advance can kill your over rev.
