first of all, what kind of race is it??What distance and what speed?
If it's a quarter mile race, and you are good at launching it, you will win, unless he has 700 hp....

go green or go home!

See if you can take a look under his hood and see what he has. Ya never know, he may have some great shit under there. But check to make sure. If he doesn't have anything than go for it and see if he'll raise it a little. Goodluck if you go for it.

Drive it like you stole it

unless he has spent thousands and thousands of dollars on his car, you'll win, IF, and it's a big IF, you can launch properly and accelerate hard.

Don't be shifting at 8000rpm :)

Your bike is quicker 0-60, and quartermile, so it will come down to your riding skill.

Do it I wouldn't even worry about it! Even if he spent thousands he has to make it hook! Unless he is rollin big ET slicks you have no prob!

I've seen a stock automatic 95ish Camaro run 11.10's on a 150HP NOS fogger. That wasn't an LS1. Not even an SS.

$500 on gas and $250 on a gear change, and your talking 10's with a six speed.

Hmmm......lets see, Camaro (mullet-mobile) SS at roughly 3,500 lbs and 350hp, that is 10lbs/hp, ZX-6R roughly 380lbs and 100hp, that is 3.8lbs/hp. Savor the victory and let us know what you spent the dumbasses $500 bucks on. I've had fast cars, had friends with even faster cars, you can't even comprehend what fast is untill you have ridden a sportbike, mine amazes me everytime I go for a ride.

Ok i am not sayin my bike will always win but almost 10 out of 10 the bike will take the kill. But there is always that one. I owned a vr6 turbo jetta that took a gixer 750 up top and i wasn't tryin hard. But i am not talkin $500 in bolt ons but a full race motor. Even after that i would always go with the bike no matter what. Slight fuck up and he would have had me hard. Catch up is not fun! Even if you are make 700whp in a 2700lb car!

By the way, there is a video of a zx6r drag as seen from the seat onto the instruments cluster on motorcycle.com it`s easy to find....
You just need to slip the clutch, staying at 10 000 RPM, and watch out for wheelies...By the way, don`t start at the middle you will spin like crazy...follow a tire mark...

That`s in case you have never drag raced....

Hope to hear the results!!!!

go green or go home!

"follow a tire mark..."

awesome advice....

what are the resutlks, you should have won barring no fuk ups on your part...


And it does constantly amaze me how people in fast cars think they are fast....

There really isn't any car on the street with th power.weight ratio of our supersports....period!!!!

if you know dick about engines, pop his hood and look for an extra pully in the miidle with in/out air pipes(could have a shiny intake man.). that would be a supercharger. depending on the size and boost ratings that alone could put some serios horspower into an otherwise stock car. check in sneaky places for nos too. but only a rich prick puts nos into a 350, wears it out too fast. he'd honestly have to be pushing 500 to even come close to you. past a 140 he could get you if his gearings right. my dad has a 93 5.0 with tons of mods and dynoed at 410. 3.73 gears. id ride a fuckin wheelie past him. he cant lock up and even when he does im long gone. but if hes gettin a whipplecharger and if it doesnt rip the car in half he might have a shot.
