Kevin advised he made it out to the AMA Norwalk Fall Nationals
during October 08.
"My GT750 made it past tech inspection and I made several passes.
Here are a few pics of the GT750 (the way it looked that weekend). I continue to make modifications to further reduce weight.
Between the front rotor/caliper and battery change, I saved 21 lbs.
I am starting a serious effort converting the head to a "squish" design.
I made 3 passes, each one slightly better than the prior with the best pass at 12.83 sec/104.3 mph.
I know thats not fast but it was a great shake down run and I had a blast."
Here is the 2010 version of the improved GWB (Great White Buffalo) as some of the H2 racers now call it...
