This guy was driving a supercharged Corvette - I think the rider wasn't quite on his game or else he was on a 600:

Bike vs. Car, I never wouldve thought it -- until I got my car Magged up. Please no flames, I'm not saying my car is faster than any bike, just this bike on this day. So you guys who ride sick bikes relax, I know some of 'em must be faster.
My best friend rode Ducatis, street and then only track, (996's mostly, and 748 he could win on too) and would keep me in line back when I had any of my other Vettes and thought my car was "fast". Forget it. It was no contest, ever.

Thats why I still can't believe it - it happened again today - on the only road you can do it on around here. It was me, a bunch of kids in a new CTS (not a V), a kid in a Infiniti G35 with some work done on it, and a guy on a GSXR, although I'm not sure which one. I'm casually cruisin' along, and the kids in the CTS were playing around trying to egg me on, tailin' me, etc, the Infinti kid was doing the same, and the bike was pulling up next to me, looking over, and blasting off, lifting the front of the bike, etc, then waiting for me to catch up....hmmmm ok.

After a couple minutes of this, I'd had enough, So I dropped down a gear, WOT, and left all of them behind for a minute, (stick straight road, no traffic ahead). I backed off and the CTS kids went flying by even though there was a red light in front of us. We all came to the light, and I see the kid in the G35 behind me stick his head out the window and yell hey. I turn around like ? and he goes - "Dude you gotta race that bike --you can take him !!" The CTS kids were egging me on too, so I said f-ck it. Like I said, this is the only road around here like this. Long safe stretches - long visibility ahead.

SO I waited till I was lined up with the GSXR and we both nailed it, with CTS and G35 boy side by side behind us, probably from a 40-50 roll. Once again, I chirped third on the Nittos, and my Magged Z pulled this bike almost a car length, I was thinking, aw man, no way, this is nuts, I bounced off the limiter in 4th cause I was looking to see where he was (mistake) and then looked at the speedo when I hit 5th and decided to back down - no need to keep going way deep into land you in jail territory, even though things ahead were clear.
Of course the bike probably took it up to 160+ once I backed down.

End of the story - the bike and the CTS kids caught up, and then turned off and waved. The G35 kid was at the next light with me. He was like "YEAAAH !" giving me the thumbs up.

I said "Man, I cant beleive this car can beat a bike." He points and says "That car can! Your car is the ****. Hey I had work done to this and I just ran a 13." I was like "Cool. I have some work, too, y'know, I'm supercharged." He just shook his head pointed to my ride and said "Forget it. THAT's the car".

As I've said before I am used to getting totally killed by bikes with any other car I've ever owned. AND I didnt get my magnacharger so I could street race bikes. I'm not even a hard core streetracer, I just love having a powerful Z. But Man I gotta say, it is a pretty cool feeling to pull away from a nasty little sport bike at WOT. Especially a GSXR. I wish I knew which GSXR it was. Sorry.

What I want to know is the hp on both machines.

Take that with the weight of the machines to figure out the hp : weight ratio then we could talk about if the rider was a squid...

:bash:

Me thinks not.

A couple years ago, Sport Rider did an article pitting a Corvette against a GSXR, Kevin Scwantz rode both in time trials.

Sorry, but no supercar will ever beat a crotch rocket.

I agree w/ chris, it's all about the power to weight ratio... 99.9999999 times out of hundred; its not even a contest..

so what if we are talking some real serious wheels, and put a F50 up against a GSXR, etc....the one of a few cars where it'd be a fun race to watch..

Even an F50 or a Ventura or some **** like that still would be hard pressed until well into triple digits to touch a sport bike. The fastest car in the world does 0-60 in 2.8 seconds. Any GSXR, R1, R6, Ninja, CBR, etc. can easily do that or better. And that is a $500k car vs. what a $10k bike? GTFOH. MFP.

I know a few cars that run in the 9s and 10s and are street driven ! And when they test bike's in the mags they get a few runs and are some of the best rider's to get those times. I ran a 11.4 on my R6. I had a little more, but didnt have leather pants. So i no there are cars that can take bike's. And if the guy on the bike cant drag race then :bash: forget it.

I used to run my car up against a few bikes before. I used to own a 95 Ford Mustang GT 5.0. After I was done adding everything to it I wanted. My fav thing was the Saleen Superchager that push out 300Hp its self to add to the rest I had done to it. Now that was a car that would keep up to some bikes. :dthumb:

LOL Yeah right. I was pushing out over 700Hp at the fly in that beast. Now if I was racing Twisty I am sure no way in hell I would win. Now these young guy on ther 600's and a few 750's that have not been even riding a yr I had np beating as well. Now if they did, I would go home and get my 900 and see what they think of seeing my tail light. :D

I had a guy on a Lexus last night that need to get a spanking about 6 times in a row. I don't know what he was thinking, as if I beat you the first 4 times and the 5th time is going to be different. I let him stay next to me a few times to about 130 or so then I'd just whip the throttle open and leave him in my 175mph dust. I mean come on, how lame can this guy be! Finally when I only had about 5 miles left on the h/w, I had to hold about 150 to leave him in the past....oops, sorry! :lol:
