Guys, here are a few things I would like to say:

1) Mich Sport Cup tires grip like a Mofo. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these tires! They will NOT spin in 2nd gear from any RPM I have mashed the pedal in. Remember, this is an 883 RWHP car we're talking about, and it won't spin 'em! I love these tires.

2) These tires held up beautifully, even at 180 MPH today. Wooooooooooh!

3) Doug Levin created a beast of a car for me. Sorry to say, but I POUNDED the crap out of it today and raced motorcycles 7 times this afternoon, the slowest of them being a stock Hayabusa 1300, and the car held up awesome! And yes, the 180 MPH was when I raced a ZX12 with a big bore stroker motor 1367cc's. And yes, I even raced a Nitrous fed Hayabusa. Silly me, silly me, but this was all part of the game plan for the afternoon. Video on Monday.

4) You guys were right -- I want more power now. JESUS!

Now I need to go buy some brakes as I fried mine after slowing down 7 different runs, the SLOWEST of them being 165 MPH. My fronts were nearly gone anyway.

-Manny

SO MANNY,

Did you beat the stock Hayabusa or hang with it???

Note: the guy on the stock Hayabusa was one of the best riders around. perhaps even pro level, many magazine write ups, etc. I'm not gonna say anything, I know the outcome....Quit teasing these guys... Tell us.. /images/graemlins/supergrin.gif

From a dead stop, the bikes will win. The car will win from a roll most likely. Depends on how far the race is. Where is that straight-away at? Doesnt look like san diego, maybe way out 8 east??

A good driver can take one out from a dig. It's all on the driver when you get to these levels of HP car vs. bike.

Finally also someone beats motorcycles now. I know sooo many ppl suspect I staged many of my races as some other ppl with similar HP can't pull a motorcycle. Dunno what to say.. *ahem* call your tuner for your real HP numbers when your engine isn't leaned out for max power on a dyno? /images/graemlins/supergrin.gif

Roadkill, the race took place about 2.5 hours from where I live, up in Palmdale. We wanted a location that hide miles of straight open road and no cars, ever, and that was the only place we could find. It's in the middle of the desert, and the several hours we were there, I think we had 3 cars that came through that we had to wait on. We had guys on both sides with lights and radios to warn of any cars coming. It took longer than 2.5 hours to get there for me, as the bikes wanted to take the fun route (twisties) which was indeed a good time. At one point I realized just how good a Hayabusa can brake and almost whacked him from the end -- but just once, and from then on I kept my distance.

Gerald, I am not sure if Danno (the first Busa I raced 3 times) is written up in magazines. I know he has been 200+ MPH with his wheels spinning, out at the salt flats, but he was an awesome driver. From my 2nd gear roll at around 45 MPH, his bike lifted for about 200+ feet and he kept on it --- FAST! I know that NickSlick with his Nitrous Busa has been in at least one magazine that I know of.

Go check out the thread on the busa forum.

YOu did us proud! I would have thought you would beat them worse, at least the stock busa, but a win is a win.

Sounds like you know your car now. Make a trip to vegas with viper boys.
I'd love to come to Vegas, but I just wont be in town /images/graemlins/sad As for my car, I know it better from rolls, but not for launching, not yet.
