I Live next to ATCO raceway in N.J.
I used to be a Big drag racer (cars) but the hobbie got to expensive
but its still in my blood , so I took my 07 S3 down back in August just to see what she'd do , it was Hot and muggy out and I ran a couple 11.4's ,and an 11.3 and 11.2
I took it back last month in October ,nice and cool out , first pass was an 11.1 , then I ran back to back 10.9's and my best a 10.89 at 125mph
learning how to launch it was the trick
my bike only has minor mods , Jardine dual slip ons ,K&N air filter and a Tune

Aerodynamics as well would play an important factor as well with no fairing. Also, per your post above about the cams, the speed is already at max power at redline, adding more RPMs wouldn't result any more power. Though the lower redline compared to inline 4s may contribute if it really results in more shifting. 2500 more RPM would do a good job of destroying the engine though!

It really just isn't what the bike was made for.
