My next big purchase

http://www.radicalsportscars.com/

I'm gonna get the SR3 build package...bout 20,000 and all it needs is a motor.. which u use a Busa motor for... though a ZX14 may be a better motor for now....5K$ for either motor lightly mod'd and u got one hell of a Anything killing car for 25,000$

Check out the info on em, they are breaking track records around Europe and race with the 100,000$ track only Porsche's..... not bad for a 40-50K car brand new.... and in Europe they even have a street legal one with blickers and brakes and lights.... If i could get this in Nevada id have to say i might be on the bike less.....I want it in the next 5 years.

'03 Black Kawasaki Z1000, Muzzy Full 4:1 Exhaust, Mod'd Airbox with K&N, Tank and Tail Graphics, Freestreet Design Undertail, Ermax Belly Pan, HD Piston Case Sliders(custom),Puig Windscreen, Lightning Performance Frame Sliders.

Those things are awesome, I've seen them on the track out here in Homestead as well as at Sebring. Those things are pretty much the quickest things on the track and can handle like a monster!

Have you seen the Ariel Atom?? Comes with a Honda RSX Type S motor (aka Civic Type r) 2.0 liter, and you can get it super charged... its absolutely sick!!! Cheaper than a radical too.

KEep us posted though

they did a head to head comparo on em on 5th gear, and the Radical just ate the Ariel on the track, accelration they are fairly close, but i htink when they did it the Radical was ojl;y 205 HP, now the Sr3 is available with up to 255HP... they have that Sr4 now thats sick, i can only imagine the cost though and the SR8 is essentially a la mans cars nad has to be mulitple hundreds of thousands when they sell it. The ariel is cool though, just seems too heavy for me, the SR3 looks much faster reacting and the sportbike motor is just appealing...i'd imagine it would F up any superbike on a track....Anything capable of beating EVERY street driven car on the road has gotta be an incredible ride... 30,000$ isnt that much at all for how fast it really is. But its not in my immeadiate future....

Those are freakin' awesome! I saw some similar when I was in Italy. I wonder if they were the same? Those things FLY!!

Probably the most fun you can have on four wheels...

Its mostly emissions that stops us from getting some real cool toys here.

Nevada will let u get a lot of stuff in Emissions free if its a custom car. Long as u clear it with a V8 pre smog motor, you can mod ot all hell after... and registered here to Busa emissions would be easy.....since a moto engine has no smog testing once it leaves the factory, plus cars here that remove the cats still pass nevada smog.. my truck is a 91 with 152K miles nad passes at under 2% of allowable emissions

the Radical actually beats it 0-60... with 205HP......\\

from there up in a stright line it wont... by i'd still bet my house agianst the Viper that the Radical will EAT the viper with seconds to spare on a technical road coarse since it runs with the full race porsche cars that are around 500HP and much more nimble then the Viper
I think the new base model vette keeps up with the viper on the track, and i know the Gt and hte Z06 just slaughter it by 2 and 3 seoconds a lap.
