also when you watch the video... for the couple of seconds in the video that you can see the bike... i don't see him use the clutch at all... on a turbo busa he should have at least shifted 2 times if he started at 80 mph.... so i am guessing he started off in a low gear because the front end doesn't even budge.
No doubt that this car beat this bike, not going to argue that.
It just seems wierd to me. You don't the the front end of the bike lift at all, nevermind a wheelie. Even if it was extended when it's too far out there the tire will just roast becuase there won't be any weight over the wheel. Gary is posting on the Busa forum and hopefully he will set up a race with someone from the board that everyone can be 100% sure isn't sandbagging. I liked Nick and Dana's video because you new what was happening and both parties were well known and there was no question as to what was going on during the race.
That video was wake. It was stuttering a little on my player, so I could be just me, but that race seemed staged. And that interview....???... it looked like a Michael Jackson interview, with a fully-written confession and all.
This is BS unless the viper has 1400rwhp. I mean theres another vid of a 164whp Busa beating a 731rwhp Viper in this forum. For reference my STOCK 2005 made 157whp. I dont get it, but the guy doesn't even tuck. And that interview? This is just a weird video.
275 hp man ... The viper is fast but not that fast, this looks like one of those money making video, then you come and race him for 2k or some big money then get you head knock off.My R-1 was 175 rear wheel and at 80 let me down shift that bike would be all over the road... :stickpoke
