Found on a car forum...can a supercharged Corvette smoke an R6?
Maybe it just cause it's hot outside now, or maybe I launch low, but I gotta say my Nitto R2s with this setup stick like crazy.
I dropped a 40 roll - WOT -- against a dude on a new Yamaha (I think it was an R6? Things were moving pretty fast so I'm not sure what bike he was on, but it was new) and was suprised to see I got about 1/2 car length on him. Then later I took off and he was on my tail but not gaining any ground. Only time I've had anyone stay with me when I'm full throttle with the Magnusson. It was really fun. This guy was a good rider, too. Fast. It's rare to beat a bike with a car. But my car with the mag and Nittos apparently can do it. At least this time. First time I've ever done it, usually against a bike, any of my other vettes it would be no contest. But a Maggied Z06 takes off like a jet if you are hooked up well.
At the next light the bike rider gave me a knowing nod and a wave before he rode on. Cool. I knew my car was fast but damn it was really fun to beat a guy on a sport bike. It took all I had, I just missed the limiter getting into 3rd. But I pulled 'em. Now I wanna see how I do against my buddy on his modded GSXR - I think he might still kill my ass but at least I have a challenge. He'll probably blow past me on one wheel, but I dont care - it'll be fun.
