Personally I think this video is rigged. Click on the link and find "supra vs. hayabusa" and it shows a supposed supra beating one of the fastest bikes on the streets.

http://www.lgracing.net/LGRacing/video_files/Videos_index.htm

WHAT? How could a supra beat a busa. Sometimes I really hate carheads, they always look for ways to make themselves look better than motocyclists.

Does anyone believe this? Or do you think there is some BS that we don't see behind the scences here?

If I lose, then you cheated.

A turbo on nitrous from 70? I wouldn't doubt it. Top end, no. Standing start, no. Put 'em on a 1/4 and see who comes out on top. They just found the one situation that they could glorify they're dinky little coffee-can exhaust car in to try and make it look like something.

ok now look at it like this..... if the guy on the bike put the same money into his bike that the guy put in his car, well you would know the outcome of it.... put some NOS and an extending swingarm on the busa and see if you can still see it.... the bike was all stock... normally in any situtation that car would have been crushed.... god i hate carheads

It is not a fixed video. It is a real car. That supra runs 10's. It's got the works done to it. "At the track, it has run a 11.1 @ 141.6 mph on 275 Nittos running it's lower boost setting and No NOS". It's got some HKS GT2835 tiwn turbos setup. That turbo kit setup is called the "Busa killer".<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> If you don't believe me or just want to check out the car and info about it, go here...
www.turboimports.comGo to the bottom, "turboimport cars". It is Darren Strunks Black Supra. It looks like this.

Enjoi Also check out the SC300's. They got built Supra engines in them. Pretty sweet. I'm sure you've all seen the vid. of the car catching up to the 2 RX-7's and a Viper Venom racing. Well one of those Lexus SC300's is it.

26psi and a 70 shot on the stock bottom end = a car on the edge of self destruction.

If that supra got one sip of bad gas.....well...a piston paper weight is kinda cool.

So the real world race would have to be as follows....

1. Supra cruzing around and just happens to have the boost cranked
2. On the freeway he happens to pull along side a STOCK Busa
3. They put the hammer down @ 70mph
4. Supra hopes he doesn't have any bad gas, perfect ignition timing, and a million other things that can happen at 26psi boost

....After the race the Busa goes to the local strip, where the other bikers are humbled, and gives some hottie a ride.

The Supra on the other hand, turns down the boost, drives to his shop to pull the plugs, and spend the rest of the night under the hood checking for possible problems.

In that situation the Supra wins, so what.

Very good call, but like i said, put that same money into the busa that he raced, which he has put into his car, and you get a bike that runs high 8's.....

lol .. well believe what you want. I dont' know what 1300CC lightly modded busas run so i'm not going to comment on the bike. But if want to guess about his supra then just get on the www.supraforums.com and ask anyone on there about it. They are all kool. The ones that actually have supras and what not. Supras are very powerfull cars. I think Busa's run 10-9's. So I think it was a good race/run. That's all I really care. I got more vids of that same supra and some similar running 900+ modded bikes and leaving them in the dust like they were sitting still.
At a stop, the bike would get the jump. But reguardless. A high 9sec Supra is a high 9 second Supra, so I would figure the Supra would be right next to or ahead of the busa at the end of the 1/4th mile.
An again, either way you gotta respect something that can leave a modded Busa in the rear view mirror.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

<--The Busa in this vid was stock.

I have respect for the Supra, don't get me wrong. It is a quick mutha!! I'm just saying it would just be a different race cruzing around town or starting from a stop. Its all about traction for the Supra.

So here is a busa that would make that supra look slower.... http://www.mrturbo.com/gallery/gallery4.html ..... a busa that has a mr.turbo on it, that runs a 1/4 in [email protected] and is the Aruba SBS Record Holder .....


Now put those two against each other and you will have that busa ahead of that supra by about a 1.5 seconds.... no matter what, you put a turbo in a busa, it wont lose in a 1/4 mile.

but the problem is it easier to get a good launch from a car at the strip than it is for a bike.

You have alot more factors when riding a bike to keep under control.....


I dont think it's a big deal if a car can beat a bike, because all the car manufacturer spend loads of cash making sports cars feel more like motorcycle (i.e. acceleration, feel, smooth cornering etc...)

And in the end, lets face it, chics dig motorcycles more ;)

you also gotta remember gears to, if he was on the highway just chillin', he was probley in 6th gear running very low rpms. that supra came up next to him wanting and ready to race. give me a gix1000, gix750, busa, zx12r and let me pull up next to the guy ready to race. he will see nothing but my rear tire.

that video is bogus. although the car is impressive, had that bike been ready to race...it would have been a completely different story.

I raced a 390 H.P. Supra TT that did the 1/4 in the low 13's w/ shitty tires and whooped him pretty nice, that was from a 40 mph roll. All of the top end cars go from rolls because they dont have enough traction off the line and even at a 20 roll the rear ends on them do a nice little waving action. He was running 19.8 lbs. of boost when I raced him that night he raced a turbo porshe and kept up with him pretty nice until his intercooler hose popped off, pretty scary thing to hear a boom coming out from your engine. I only have a pipe on my bike and its not even jetted yet, I'm sure that after I jet my carbs and smack a K&N on I'll be able to beat him even worse. The thing that you cant foreget is that its a bike and its all mainly hp to weight ratio.

Well I don't really give a s*** about which is faster (I get a chuckle out of people whose whole identity is wrapped around the speed of their ride) but there was one odd aspect to the vid;

There is this segment where I can't tell what happens, simultaneous to the "Splitting the scout vehicle" tagline. Almost looks like the 'Busa drops back over concern of hitting the scout car, getting pinched by the railing, or whatever.

It is so hard to see and there is nothing that says whether the bike dude even knew what the plan was. The same thing run in daylight with a clear 'let's get it on' for both sides and no scout car to get in the way would make for a better test.

But as I say, whatever. Don't get me wrong; I like going fast. But when it becomes a win-at-all costs deal in a non-professional setting, then someone probably needs to re-evaluate their priorities.

There is a similar video that can be found on kazaa or morpheus. Its just called Supra vs motorcyle. Its 2.4MB. It seems to be like the same supra and the video says at the beginning that the 2 hayabusas are modified. But anyway the supra loses like a bitch and gives up while the hayabusa speeds off. No one can mess with bikes. The only cars that can stand a chance are the >$200,000. They can only win if they can shift fast enough. If you go to http://www.mtv411.com/sports.htm they have specs on all kinds of fast cars and bikes. So yall check out the video and the webpage.

There is no way that the supra could beat even a stock busa. the guy on the busa was probably to scared to open it up. Don't get me wrong, I'd be scared as shit too.
