I went into this race knowing that I was going to lose and it was merely a friendly race without cash involved. I wanted a 30 roll, but he wanted a 70 and this was the outcome. Races are from 65-70 to 170 mph. The cars you see in the video are spotters and chasers. There were very few civilians on the street for our races.

Supra is a 76mm turbo on 45 psi, no nitrous, and E85. He was making just over 1,000 rwhp on this setup and is capable of much, much more.

My bike is a 2011 ZX-10R with 1,200 miles and a full Graves exhaust. No ecu reflash or tune.


***Btw I did not make the video....

Stock bike against that much HP will loose usually. What gear were you in at 70mph?

It doesn't look like the rider crouched down into the bike? Or is it jus me? Easily lose
a couple of mph that way gotta get inside that windscreen
I was thinking the same thing didn't like the launch look of the rider especially racing against a 1000hp car you better tuck and go fast that car will be coming fast. :badteeth:

It would be a different race with the ECU flash...not saying you would win (seeing as how it didn't look like you were tucked) but it def would be a different race. I will have my Gen 4 down in FL soon when I visit family in Jax, I wouldn't mind riding to Otown and run that car.

Thanks everyone!

I was in 2nd gear @ 70 mph and I was having issues with keeping the front down so I was hugging the tank. I guess I forgot to get down behind the windscreen after lol. I'm 5'6" and 120 lbs and when I get tucked, I am really, really tucked.

I'm still not really used to the bike (coming from a 600) and the power is still unreal for me. Give me some time to practice. That was only my 2nd race on this bike and I haven't really ripped on it much before that lol.

My bike is stock save for a full exhaust. Gearing is stock, etc. We'll have our rematch once I do the reflash and get some sort of engine tuning done.

Get a double bubble screen and that should help a little bit too.
