zx-10 to drag race?

Mod for mod what do you guys think do better gsxr or zx10.. I am looking at buying a new bike and Im considering a 04 zx-10.. my roomate had an 06 with race baffles and one tooth down in the front and he pulled my full system, power comander, one tooth down 05 cbr1000rr like it was a little bitch! I also really like the gsxr..
are they really comparable.. I just want a nice bike that will lay down some nice numbers.. they both beat my old 1000rr in the power and clutch department.. what do you think the best all around would be?
thanks

I'd go with the 10...but you can't go wrong with the gixxer,...just don't crack the frame!

If I had it to do again i would buy an 05 gixxer over the 04/05 10. The aftermarket is much better for the gixxer for drag racing and they are much easier to work on.

Well I have an 04 and all that I really use it for anymore is dragracing. I love it and have ridden alot of bikes on the strip and street. I wouldn't give it up for any of em either. However if I had the opportunity to pick up an 07GSXR1K
I would mainly becasuse it is going to have a much larger aftermarket following than the 10 does and ever will. But I still love my 10. And it's nice to have a bad ass 10r crack a zuk's ass on the strip, Cause regardless of what bike you get it's mostly about the rider.

I go to the track all the time and from my observation the gixxer is the better track bike. I love the 10 but it just doesn't have the torque to holeshot like those gixxers.

How does the 04 r1 come in.. mod for mod comparable? Or are the zx and the gsx on a whole new level? my buddy has a 04 r1 with full titanium akrapovic system, commander, filter, and under 2k miles for sale for 7k.. seemed like a really good deal just have not really seen any r1s at the drag strip...
