At the wheels? What is it 2 wheel drive?Originally posted by Ponm
A buddy of mine just built a R1 with a turbo putting out around 300 at the wheels and getting ready to add a 40 shot. Still having trouble with detonation and keeping it running cool. He is hoping for a 7.9 in the quarter but feels he will probably be in the 8s. Everytime I helped him work on his bike I felt I was helping build his casket, considering this is going to be his daily bike.
Has he raced before? A 300 bhp road bike running 7s? sounds doubtful. I assume he'll fit a long swing arm and slam the bike. That's the only way it's gonna run 8s let alone 7s.
In street trim on stock wheel base it'll be a struggle to run 9s coz R1s are too wheelie happy to get serious power down.
