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.

I would like to see this. I know there are cars out there that could beat a bike but I want to see it first hand. I came close to losing to a car once. I was riding my TL1000R when this Toyota Supra Superchaged pulled up beside me and just gave me that look. The light turned green and we were off. First time I ever had a car stay this close to be yet still behind me. It was a great race. They are fast cars. :D

With the proper prep to a Super Supra it can get REALLY fast and eat some sportbikes...I've heard it many times...they are awesome rides....

DAMN. That is some serious power. I wonder how it would be to get that much power on a bike. One wheel all the time. :D

No way is a Vette going to touch an R6 at a 40 roll.

1. That guy is full of it - he probably doesn't even own a vette other than the barbie vette that his mommy bought him for not felching anymore and not tird burglering at the neighbor's house

2. That guy is full of it - refer to the felching and tird burgerling comment from before

Get that guy's email and get him to meet me somewhere and I will do a 40 roll against him. I raced Shugg Night's "double" on the Davison in a Vette.

That is the funniest thing when you are on a sportbike of any kind. You roll up to a Vette and say hey what year is that? blah blah How much did it run? Oh $50k, wow. That sucks because I spent $5k and I got your ass.

Cages suck.

Get that idiot Vette guy and let's see his 40 roll. MFP.

Welcome Choppa'. Glad your here and thanks for the video. That was AWSOME. The vette only won the first race after he got to 160mph and then passed the bike. But WOW 690Hp vette. Thats a beast. The NOS Busa was very sweet as well.

Post away and have some fun here. We all do. Even at 3am in the morning on here.

I ride a bad ass 2000 race replica huffy ninja with 18 speed sequential tranny, new huffy factory slick track tires(they stick like no other). 520 chain conversion kit, carbon fiber handlebars, painted house of colors candy blue with matching shoei helmet and mesh jacket, and "Tha Beast" as i refer to it, is dropped two inches. :) Jk

Well, as of now, i dont have a street bike(comin soon). Ive been reading up on various bike forums to get all i could out of them and it has helped tremendiously. Ive been wanting a bike for long time but im taking it slow and tryin to get my collage applications, and car set first and formost. Next, i gotta have at the very least a grand in my bank account so when i move up state to collage next year, ill have some time to find a job. I also gotta have enough money to buy at least the basic gear(helmet,jacket,and probly boots) .I Already got moms approval(as a matter of fact she stated most of the guidlines above). It was pretty easy since i paid for my crx and pay for alot of other material items i may want So she trust me. And of course i didnt forget about MSF course which hopfully ill take soon.
Im looking to mainly get a 200-2002 r6 or maybe a gixxer, f4i, or 600rr or similar years. Nothin new(dont want to tip it and cry all week jk). Ive decided to get a 600ss because ive got alot of time on 4 wheelers, and im also a pretty big guy a 240lbs. I also believe i have the maturity to maintain and respect the beast. Well, g2g. Thanks again for the welcome

no surpise there... :whistle:

Choppa..If you've got some experience riding, and take your MSF course before you set tire on the road, you'll be better and be glad you did...I too used to ride/race ATV's and dirtbikes, and while riding a bike is riding a bike, the street is a whole different ball game, so the more you prepare yourself the better, and and older CBR 600 would be a great choice, easy to ride and plenty of power while you're getting feet wet and learning.

Sounds like you have ur priorities straight,and if u need any advice, we have countless decades of riding experience in here, so ask away!
