I really like to lay into to those A-holes and let them know how F-ing stupid they are. You cant compare cars to bikes, it takes alot of work and love to make a car fast and as much as I love riding and the speed of my bikes I wont put down someones quick car because my bike might be faster.
    lol that reminds me of the time this kid with a cobalt ss thought he could be my z28.. he said he'd beat me cuz his car was a 5spd and mine an auto.. After I smoked his cobalt he went on and on about he'd kill me with his bike I believe he called it an R1 idk shit about bikes. never raced it but I cant imagine he knows how to drive it.

    An R1 is a 1000cc bike. You won't stand a chance.

    We shall see. I'm not saying it is definite, I'm saying I stand a better chance with the TA.

    Good vid.

    Will be interesting if I get a race when she is done.

    Well if you wanna make the drive to WI there is atleast 1 600rr that will race you. I too would like to see how a cam/head+nos f-body would do against a 600cc bike. 1000cc well they can trap 140+ so i think you would need more to take those but a 600cc is in your sight.

    I'm running a 200 shot HSW Double Impact system spraying between 3000 and 5500RPM.
    I don't stand a chance running against someone who knows how to ride their bike, especially a 1000cc size bike.
    I can find video all over that contradicts that theory, but in all reality...c'mon.
    I'm not the worlds best driver, and I've never trapped higher then 11.26 @ 121.07. But to say you stand a chance against a GSXR1000 is nothing more then a wet dream unless you have some serious mods, a great driver, and drag slicks wider then grandmas ass. So if its an "everyday" driver T/A, I'd say your going to be spending some serious money to live that dream.

    Do you only have a 200 shot, or do you have a head/cam upgrade like ls1camino aswell. Cause there are head/cam/supporting mod with no spray ls1 cars trapping 120-125mph. But yes obviosuly a 1000cc will be out of his range.

    Yeah, I'm in the 450rwhp range (no proof yet) with my H/C/I and with the 150 shot, I'll be close if not over the 600rwhp mark on the spray.

    I think 600cc bikes are not going to be a challenge, but I admit that a 1000cc would probably destroy me.

    I had a 600 f3 and never lost a race. Not a car. I love when the rocket riders want to race with a chick on the back, you can see the girl BEATING on their back at 120.... and I win...!! Yeah, right, i raced an F 16 down the interstate one time... I dont think he knew he was racing, either

    Can you be more specific? What size cam and head profile? A well done heads/cam + nitrous F-body can trap 130mph. However, with that type of power (around 600whp minimum), you'll need to work on getting that power down.

    Trick Flow heads and custom ground cam. Forged internals. I could run better with slicks, I was running Cooper ZXS street tires and had no intentions of racing on the strip. I just want something to stir up the local Corvette crowd.

    I had too many problems running just N20 without mods, but I must say I did just that for a few months.

    So that 121mph trap speed was with heads/cam/intake manifold and a 200 shot? Cause thats a slow ass time

    I wanna see a properly set-up F-body with H/C/I trapping 130mph in the 1/4... If so what does it weigh? Or did you mean 120mph.?.

    Yeah, I agree....very disappointing to me too. I would have expected more as well. I couldn't shift to save my ass guys. I'd bet someone good could have hit 130 easily.

    I've seen a couple Supras do it too... and a Ford GT. I've hung with one before in my old 240 until I ran out of gear.
