better brakes

a 70 series street tire causes the speedo on G1 to be almost exactly accurate. race tires are all over the map so I can't say. Personally I think 120MPH down a straight should be fast enough for anybody.

For me Summit point and VIR have 'long' straights and I'm happy to sit tight at 110mph. I don't bother to regrip my throttle so I'm not using WOT either. I guess I should get a 1/4 or 1/5 turn throttle if I want to go faster.
