    see that's just the thing, there's only x amount of hp that you can use before the bike's start to lift, and the 1000's are way past that point. My zx10 would lift the front tire at 140mph just by rolling off and back on the throttle. so if the liter bike cant go wide open without lifting the front tire, it is what it is and everything that CAN keep the tire down under wot will keep up. but after 100, you can go wide open on the 1000 and that's when you can really put the lengths on the 600s. I traded the 10 for an 06 r6 which is geared and just about right for power. I can go wot and the front tire just barely skips along the pavement but won't lift. That's MAX acceleration! I raced a buddys 05 R1 and beat him up to about 135-140, then he passed me.
    For peoples info. The o5 R1 is about 183hp and the r6 is 133hp. I think 150-160 is the usable line for street hp. It is fun to have more though!

    I was at the track last year, and a SRT-8 Grand Cherokee was running low 13s. It looked stock, but who knows what you can do with programming on those things.

    LOL, this thread is like a year old

    But since you resurected it... My buddy back up in NY thinks is V6 F150 is the fastest thing on the road and tells me everyday on XBL when I come back up he is going to smoke me in it, then he goes into how lightnings own everything FTW and shit.

    When I was driving my Honda's I had more people try to race me in pickup trucks than any other vehicle. It's so retarded.

    Yep. The Typhoons are actually going for less than the Syclones (from what I've seen), probably because the Sy's are becoming more rare (especially ones with lower mileage).

    The lightning boasts a 5.4L SOHC, versus the 2000 Cobra "R"'s 5.4L DOHC. In simple terms, there two completely different engines.
