    2000 Grand Prix GTP
    2000 Trans Am WS6 M6

    Unhappy Wish I had the Trans Am last night...

    Coming home from work last night, I had two crotch rockets pull up on either side of my 2000 GTP. I floored it, S/C went supersonic, and I almost stuck with them from 80 to 145. They really didn't get away from me too quickly (maybe pulled 2 cars on me), but if I had had Nymhpadora, they would have been soooooooo far behind me they would have been so shamed they would have had to trade their bikes in for smart cars

    Either they are super shitty riders or their bikes have massive problems A good running rocket (IE...600+) with a decent rider will TEAR APART A F-BODY, even decently modded

    Man: The Mods you are fighting,
    they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
    wouldn't want to fight them!

    Correct, a bone stock 600cc newer sport bike is a mid 10 to low 11 second bike with a decent rider and traps 130mph. I went a 11.4 @ 127mph on my 01 f4i and i know that my 600rr is faster just havent taken it to the track. A pro driver Ricky Gadson got a stock r6 and 600rr to hit 9.9s with just the front end strapped down. But i have never seen another stock 600cc hit 9s but they can do 10s all day.

    I have had 2 run ins with bikes and I won't waste the gas anymore First was a R6 and he was semi pro..........He wheelied/pulled away at a rapid rate in MY sweet spot The 2nd, he only had a half a car on me from 30 mph to 75 mph but he had only ridden 1 week and the speed range wasn't good as you can see.

    Last time it happened to me there was a huge pack of bikes behind me.. on a two lane highway I was going about 60 and one bike got right up on my rear bumper.. I just watched him until he got in the passing lane then I took off. He stayed right with me but couldn't pass me.. He fell back into his group after that. Must have been embaressing

    He must not have down shifted lol, seriously though 0-100mph time on a 600cc is 5.8-6.5 seconds, 0-100mph time on a 1000cc sportbike is low 5 seconds as first gear goes to 110mph. These are of course good riders but still a sport bike can do 0-100mph in the time a f-body does 0-60mph, thats a pretty big gap. I did a roll race the other day againt my girlfriends cousins 92 5.0 turbo, he was using his straight 93 octane tune which is 500whp at 10psi. His best trap speed is 129mph and that was a damn close race i had maybe a car at 130ish. He still cant get it to hook otherwise we would have raced from a dig but his best 60ft time is a 2.3 with M/T drag radials.

    Even a small 600cc sport bike is a 10-11 second ride depending on the rider. You are going to need at least a heads/cam LS1 setup and trap in the high 120mph range to even come close to a 600cc sport bike with a good rider. I've seen them go 10s at the track with nothing but a slip-on and a good rider.

    In your defense, I don't know what's done to your GTP or F-body so it is possible.

    Dont have a chance with any newer 600. You would only be beating the rider.

    If you're car doesn't trap in the high 120mph in the 1/4, you're going to lose. What are you running currently?

    My R6 will smoke my camaro all day long. But I think the car is more fun to drive..and safer. After been on the track with the bike and car, it seems so stupid to wrap up to 140 on the street anymore. I have rode with a few guys that ride their bikes like that, someday they will crash.

    Very naive. You wouldn't have a chance, even with all those mods. I could take my GSXR1000 and blister your ass, however you want it. Anyone who says they have a chance, well, they're naive too.
