"We are expecting a larger and higher quality field of Pro Comp bikes at Virginia Motorsports Park on June 21-23, 2013 for the East Coast Cup," said Dan Rudd of MPS. "We have been working some long hour to prepare the MPS/Thyen racing Pro Comp Hayabusa for battle with the best Pro Comp bikes in the country.
"Armed with some secret parts I can't discuss and some shiny new high tech 5 pound nitrous bottles from Nitrous Express we have never been more excited to get to the track. We feel like we can improve not only on our Bradenton numbers, but our career best numbers. We are very encouraged by the progress we are making as a team now. Everything is starting to fall into place for us to compete at the highest level."
About the bike: This bike is a totally unique combination for Pro Comp. It starts with a highly modified Suzuki Hayabusa powerplant with an MPS billet block, CP Pistons, Crower rods, Cooper Performance cylinder head with Kibblewhite valves, APE springs and cylinder studs in an Innovative Performance Racing chassis. It features what we call “MPS Lethal Injection,” a combination of MPS Spyder Dry Nitrous system and the new Holley Dominator ECU. This custom EFI/nitrous system controls all motorcycle functions including data logging.
We would also like to thank all our other parts suppliers without whom we could not race. Thanks to Kevin at Lectron Fuel Systems for the awesome new “Electrons”, Tim at Holley EFI, Ray at MSD Ignition, Jay at APE, Snake & RC at CP-Carrillo, Bill at Robinson Industries, Kerry at Crower, Lori, Debbie, and Melissa at Web Cam, Mike at Cometic, Go Go at Nitrous Express, Kurt at Millennium Technology, Will at Kibblewhite Precision Machining, Eric at MTC Engineering, Dave at Worldwide Bearings, and last but not least Brandi at Dragbike.com for the great coverage of our sport.
