They do a 9.8 @147 1/4 mile stock with 150hp at the engine. This one is 225hp at the rear wheel, turbo charged with a 100 shot of nitrous. And I agree they are not corner carvers compared to many other sport bikes, but wasn't comparing it to them. Comparing to the on in this thread. It's not been run down the track yet, but I bet the extra 150Hp at the rear tire gets it down there in the really low 8's or high 7's.
AMEN on that one.. mine is stretched 10" on the swing arm and front end is raked out 7.5 deg.. keeps it down and helps it "squat" better lol.the tire is a mickey Thompson sportsman pro.. a soft wrinkle wall tred'd slick. I've raced a local turbo busa here.. thing is FAST as @#$% but NOT easy to control. I could beat him fairly easily (no nos) simply due to the fact that mine grunts/squats and goes straight.. his grunts and REACHES for the stars LOLSounds like a stout set up you have....but keep in mind that 1/4 mile time is based on a decent/experienced rider. I've seen many run bottom to mid 10's due to inexperience but I've also seen them running 9.70's in stock form.
My dad used to have a volocity turbo kit on his busa. It was certainly quick. Problem was that before it was stretched it wheelied and after only a 4" stetch it'd just blow the rear tire off...even with a "sticky" radial.
The OP is atleast set up for traction, but i'm sure your set up would run strong on the big end...
Yep thats pretty good. Went 6.59 in the 1/8th with a 355ci and a 175 shot of nitrous on pump gas. 350 turbo with 4.10 gears, stock leaf springs and 28" slicks. I turned that thing 8,000 rpms. Barely made it into third gear in the 1/8th of a mile. And I drove it home and to all of the street races.I had a 74 nova street car I sold a few years ago. I built the entire car, learning as I went. Pump gas friendly 383ci ran 10s on the motor and mid 9s on the spray.
