    I think I need that, or would I need that? I’ll be behind the gate for the first time (senior class ) since 1986.
    Plus I’m Asian and married to a Filipino like Don.

    I’m looking to sign up for my first race on a dirt bike and I need to get a holeshot device and practice some starts. I ride by myself most of the time so I was wondering how I was going to be able to practice but this thing would save me.

    My mechanic/wife would greatly appreciate the start device. No more 1, 2, 3, almost got it. Do you want to try again or switch? Thank you for the great content, look forward to your podcasts every week.

    Love the podcasts guys! I’m really in need of that SELA holeshot device after this year. My wife and I Got married this February and recently got the fun surprise of finding out we will be in Anton’s shoes here soon with a new little one in the house lol. That being said I no longer have any friends to help me set my holeshot on the gate because I’m the “married guy” and it’s for sure gonna be a few years till the kid will be big enough to set it for me haha. Thanks for all the great content guys and keep up the good work!
