Sorry Folks not as quick as i was hopping, according to the guys that run all the time the track was slow, NOT MAKING EXCUSES. I had probs getting it off the line.

Looked faster than the other guy :)
It was faster than the other guy, thats why he gave me the finger after the finish line :))

What was your time/speed. By clock it looks like 12 seconds. Be cool to see it from the bleachers
My time was 11.2 seconds and topend speed was 194.15 kph 120.64 mph

Pretty fast! Find a 140 pound guy with drag racing experience to run a pass or two on your bike. Low 10s I'll bet :bigthumbsup:

Yeah with 176hp and a Turbo I would have thought you'd be a fair bit faster than 120mph in the 1/4 with your setup. I believe a stock M109R can do just under 12sec and 110mph. Cool video however. Post again if you go back and get a better start & time. I think you can beat that time pretty easily again with the right conditions.

If you put it in perspective, most people who race the bike the first few times never get faster then 12.50's...even modded. Some go low 13's until they are used to it. He is in the same boat, first time with the turbo and a learning curve. Actually it is worse for him with that kind of power. Tells me he is right on point for his mods and first day out. Another couple days out i could see him easily into the 10.50's.

:agree:
I also think it is nice seeing a video from the future, since it is just after 15:00 over here in the states:p.

So was this his first ever run? I thought he's run before? I wonder if he ran a 2nd or 3rd run and just didn't record it.

But yeah I would think it would be hard not to spin your tires excessively and get a good start with that much torque/hp. And I'm thinking he can really blow away this posted time as well.

I feel once he gets that beast dialed in, high 9's low 10;s are very possible...............

Not sure if he has raced it or not before. But even if he did, it is like completely starting over with that much more power and torque. Have to figure the sweet spot to launch it and not stand it up or spin the tire off.

I had a 2002 z28. 6 speed car, with just a catback exhaust I went 12.92 in the 1/4. It was dyno'd at 321 at the wheels. I did the full mods with a big cam and stage 2 heads and it put down 450rwhp. Best time I could get out of it was 12.8 spinning until I put tires on it. Then the car went to 11.19 before the bottle. So, even though he has a ton more power doesn't mean the bike will go any faster. I think he did real good first time out.

One of the reasons behind my thinking, The Hayabusa specs,,,,,,,

Claimed power :
175bhp at 9800 rpm at the crank - 1999 stock version no mods.

Tests average :
157bhp at back wheel - 1999 stock version no mods.
There are now heaps of performance enhancements which show that with
appropriate mods 200 reliable bhp is although expensive relatively easy to
achieve.

All the different 1/4 mile times have different factors i imagine, Drivers, altitude, track conditions..........And yes the busa is lighter, Just trying to get some perspective on his possibilities, I wish him luck and a safe 10 second run.........

I saw your stats above, but I don't think 9's is possible at all. I honestly think 10.50's is the best that bike can do. The bike is just too heavy in my opinion.

I have plenty of faith brutha! I know for a fact he will break the 10's. :bigthumbsup: However, the difference from 10's to 9's is HUGE. To go from a high 14 second pass to a high 13 second pass might take 25 horsepower. To go from a high 10 second pass to go to a high 9 might take 100 hp. My numbers aren't accurate but just an example. He is only running 60 more horses/torque then the average bike on here. Should be enough to go mid 10's at best but I think he will need to turn it up to 200 rwhp to get it in to the 9's with the weight we carry.

I just found a calculator, which I know arent that accurate. However, total weight of 900 (bike/rider) and 177 hp gives a 10.6 et.

No offense, but that will never see a sub 10 sec time. It will need a shot of n20 or a kick from god in the ass to do that.

That is good for its first outing. Sure there is more tuning and tweaking and just learning to ride it right and most importantly launch right. It will do 10.50's-10.70's when he is comfortable. :)

You are forgetting about the extra 2-300 lbs on the 9 vs the Busa.
