I'm surprised,tracks around here won't let cars/bikes race side by side.
And you definitly need practice.

I was waiting to see a ZX14 but no go. You would need a car posting times better than 10s to beat a 14 anyway!

Thats a car a zx14 wouldnt want to run from a roll. His launches were pretty soft, but his big end was very impressive. I'm betting that thing must be pushing 800hp at least to the tires.

And was it me, or did it sound like he was running a 3spd tranny in dire need of a shift kit??? Must have been trying to keep from breaking stuff... those gear changes were painful to my ears. Bad ass Camaro though, and streetable too with those BFG Drag Radials.

The big $$$ cars are faster...

The cars are easier to drag race, all you have to do is cut a light...Car racing is boring!!!

"face it cars are faster than bikes "
Maybe so but this comment is very vague! I've seen cars pull 5-6 seconds in a 1/4 mile @ over 300mph. I still don't think THIS Camaro would beat a 14 in the 1/4 mile w/ a decent rider aboard.

STREET CARS are not faster than STREET BIKES Crotchrocket. When the guy cant drive his car around town without overheating it, changing tires, recalibrating ignition and jetting, or fouling plugs, etc. its NOT a street car. And there are very very few street driven cars that can run in the 9's, and only then with alot of nitrous. Name me a single pump gas non nitrous car that can run high 8's like a mildly modded 14 or Busa can? Thats what I thought.

Unfortunately, the riders with the size and skill to run there bikes at that speed are about as rare as the 'street legal' cars themselves, so we'll call it a draw. And FYI, Texas probably has 50% of all the fastest cars in the USA. amazing what some of them guys do down there...

A stock busa,14 or a 1000 with bolt on's and a good rider will have 90% of the cars covered out there. It takes big money to get a car to run the kind of numbers a bike can. You can debate this all day, but dollar for dollar a bike is the cheapest way to go fast...

800 to the rear wheels on that car would be very low 9's with the right driver...not mid 10's. 10.61 on a ZX14 means you're in 600CC territory at those times. You'll get him soon enough though!

Yes, the "ultimate" cars are faster than the "ultimate" bikes. Funny cars and Top Fuelers will smoke the best bikes. But in the "regular" world, most stock 600's would stomp on almost any stock car. I have a good friend that has a supercharged w/nitrous Viper that makes around 750hp. He loves to race the big bikes, and its always very close IF he is rolling-on starting around 50mph. Even then he's had mixed results with stock and/or lightly modded Busa's and 14's. I love to give him a hard time telling him he's spent over $100,000 on a car that has mediocre/slim success against some $11,000 bikes. By the way, I hope the dude comes and finds you Wheelie. Hee!

Facts: a SS Camaro with the cage he has will weigh in from 3200-3600 pounds. Having ridden in 9 and 10 second cars before, I can say with confidence that the car in that video could not be making less than 650 hp at the tires, and most likely 750-800. If he optimized it for launching, he could no doubt knock off a half second or more. Just insert about another $6K, or $10K with a new tranny...

I don't know the elevation or temp of the track in question, but I'm assuming it was high since the bike was only pulling those numbers even though it was launching OK, but you never know.

Watch some more videos or go to a track and pay attention to the fast cars, in comparison this guy was snowballing it off the line, obviously not his strong suite. In comparison to other legit 10 second cars that is...

wrong, yes I lost first round after driving 4 hours, was told no time trials will be run at a all day motorcycle event, maybe thats why I left. the owner of that San Antonio track is a jerk. im sure you saw my first pass? 9.30, will you car run faster than that? weeeeeeeeeeeeee
