You raced a GTI, that should explain it all right there.Originally Posted by YZFWV
It is going to take a pretty fast car to beat a 600 I'll give you that. But people seem to think there unstoppable. And from a roll there not, it's funny how you biker boys get your panties in a bunch over it.
If I got a good pass out of my car on street tires, I'd hope for a low 13 sec 1/4. Yet earlier today, I race a friends 06 GSXR-600, from a 60 mph roll and we were dead even. And I had a passanger with me. I'll give you a hint, it's called traction. And a 3k lbs car with 400ish whp doesn't have any. In my mind there's no way a 11 sec bike will out accel a 11 sec car from a roll due to areo, and traction both are now in the car's favor, and the faster you go the less your weight advantage really maters.
And I'm not buying any of the speeds you posted, as bike's speedo's are way off. Hell the GSXR I raced said his speedo read 148 during the race. I'm pretty sure we only went up to about 120 or so, but I never looked at the speedo.
