MPS/Thyen Racing Pro Mod Hayabusa the Quickest EFI Nitrous Hayabusa First Time Out!
The MPS/Thyen Racing Pro Mod Hayabusa made its maiden voyage at Thunder Valley Dragway in Bristol, TN last weekend. Testing on Friday gave encouraging results with a best of 4.45. Qualifying #8 with another 4.45 and a very conservative tune up. We decided to turn it up a little for our Sunday shakedown run, which netted a 4.39. A few chassis adjustments and we were ready to take on our first round opponent Rob Hunnicutt. Rob was superman on the tree and ended our day with a holeshot win 4.38 to our 4.36. “All in all, it was a great first outing for our team. I was impressed with Mike’s riding, making 8 straight as a string passes in a row. That gives us some good data to tune from. Low ET of eliminations was only a 4.24 because density altitude was at almost 4800 feet. That makes our 4.36 even more impressive.” said crew chief Dan Rudd.
About the bike: This bike is a totally unique combination for Pro Mod. It starts with a Suzuki Hayabusa powerplant in an Innovative Performance Racing chassis. It features what we call “MPS Lethal Injection,” a combination of MPS Spyder Dry Nitrous and the new Holley Dominator ECU. This custom EFI/nitrous system controls all motorcycle functions including data logging.
