I used to own a 500rwhp 04 Cobra before I bought my truck and I could pull on 600s all day long...especially over 100mph. I raced a few 750s and they would win but i would be able to hold them within 7-8 carlengths of me from 80-140mph.
I would be able to hit a little over 170mph in the cobra most of the time.


However, my neighbor (buddy) has a 2003 Z06 with just over 580rwhp (not including the 125 shot of nitrous!!) and he can pull 750s EASY!!!!! I was in the car with him on multiple occassions where he handed a gixxer 750 its ASS from about 40mph-160mph....really pulling over 100mph. Not sure if the people on the gixxers were the best riders in the world but still....we would be neck and neck from 50-100 or so and all of sudden his vette would just walk away but at least 6-7 carlengths by 160-170ish. the bikes look stunned!!!!

also....2 weeks ago...some punk kid on a ZX-10....yes a ZX-10 saw us goosing it around on a local highway and came up next to us and stared at us and popped up the wheel as he thought he was gonna wheelie to a victory....WRONG!
we broke the tires loose in 2nd, 3rd, and chirped 4th at 110mph (605rwtq) and the dude was trying hard to get the wheel down fast and start nailing it....lol

he was very very close to us once he put his wheel down but we held him at our rear bumper till almost 175mph. i think the guy on the bike was having enough by 150ish though and wouldnt really get on it much more...

had he kept the wheel down and not been so cocky..he would have pulled a little better and beaten us.


now....he hasnt messed with any zx-12s or busas cause obviously he would lose....but im just saying that his 620hp/635tq Z06 can beat 750s and 900s fairly easily.

BTW....i have no idea how he would fair if he hit the 125 shot against a busa??? that would make his vette around 700rwhp and over 750rwtq...so it might be close against a stock busa....

people always come back with the fact that a bike costs less. forget cost. remember than that a bike is 10-12k for an engine with 2 wheels and an uncomfortable riding position. I hate the cost factor arguement more than anything else. especially when people compare costs when they say they could make a subaru faster than a ferrari for 150k less........they are missing the point completely.

Bike vs. car...bikes are almost always faster/cheaper...but its pretty damn cool to be in a high powered car comfortable with your shades on, radio blasting, windows open, and smoking a bike!!!!

I may not be able to take on your 750 or 1000 with the cobra.....but my buddies Z06 like i mentioned above probably would give you a run for your money!!!!

GnH... I can understand that POV! But you allow me to tell you about Twisty... I can sum it up easily... Budget Racer. He wants to go faster than you for as little money as he can!

But I agree I would much rather be sittin in a $150K Ferrari than on a 10R say. Plain and simple. There is more of a status and cool/money factor played out in that car over the bike.

hahahah...in all honesty...what is done to the 600 that your so confident it can beat a 550hp (500rwhp) Cobra?? turbo? bolt-ons and a power commander arent going to help you that much when a 500rwhp can easily pull a 600 over 100mph. whats so special that yours is gonna light up the cobra??? lol


BTW...i bet you are a great rider...ill give you that...i checked into your stats and races and you are obviously very respectable in riding.

but...you really think your 750 can hang with a 650hp vette??? or how about a 700rwhp vette on the nitrous????? ponder that one!!! lol

well i cant say i would take my bike over a ferrari....but i would seriously consider a hyped up vette or cobra over a ferrari...just because I love cars that are different from anyone elses. A ferrari 360 or whatever is common and the same from owner to owner.

A vette that rumbles the ground and breaks the tires loose at 100mph isnt so common and I think would draw more attention from a car enthusiat crowd....

I could care less if I had a 100k car if I could have a 50k car with some work done that could beat the hell outa the 100k car. Symbol means nothing to me for the most part....performance does...all the way.

Well along with being a ok rider, I also graduaded with a Science degree. That means I took alot of math classes.

The power to weight ratio of the 750 avg's out to you needing around 700rwhp car to beat my 750 your gonna need and 850rwhp to beat my 1000.

My 600 is just little ol'race bike. 0-100 in 2.9 secs. From a dead you'll be wishing for a few more ponies....

My spelling sucks :h16:
