Welcome. That looks first class.

Is that totally fabricated? A kit? A class?

That's badass. Looks like a LOT of fun to drive. Welcome to the site!

Very cool! Yeah. looks like a blast to drive! We've seen a number of people join the site with GSXR engines in some sort of contraption, it is nice to see one finished let alone a professional quality product. More pics and info would be great!

That thing is very cool,I don’t know how I missed this thread before. I have been looking at these on you tube the guys throwing bike motors in cars/mowers etc. there’s even a company that makes a v8 busa motor they combine 2 blocks and one crank shaft. it seems to be more popular over in Europe , my buddy just bought a restored ( a waiste of time if you ask me) Mazda b2200 pickup and wants to motor swap it with a turbo Supra motor , I told him he should consider a busa motor or even a 1000 motor I think you would get more bang for your buck.

Damn that thing moves! What does it weigh? I was surprised you were getting wheel spin given the size of the contact patch compared to the displacement. Beautiful machine. Great videos too. Thanks. If you are going to be at televised events be sure to let us know!

That thing is awesome. I wanna drive it now. Used to build fast street Karts years ago. Nothing like doing 75 with your ass 2" from the ground, lol.

It weights around 800lbs without driver. It is quite easy to break the tires loose!

Wow, way lighter than I thought! Would you say you have more grip? I am thinking bigger contact patches and more weight pushing down on them. Really, a bike has a contact patch smaller than the palm of your hand and you have to have more than that on a single tire alone.

I'm running 8" wide tires in front and 10" wide tires in the back. These cars are very aero dependent so some are even running 6-8" wide tires and making them work.

Saran wrap on the tires sounds like someone tried it and now everyone copies him thinking that it provides an edge. But I don't claim to know what I'm talking about. Do they come that way when brand new?

The saran wrap is used to help seal the tires after traction compound is applied.

Wow! Totally rad car!

Thanks for the vids too. I watched a few of them, thanks for the ride!
Pretty cool seeing that car in front of you loose it onto the grass.
You were the fastest car in your vids too! Your GSXR/Formula car sounds great! Smooth, fast, etc.
I watched this one:

And the pucker moment one? Looked like you lost the front, but regained it without hitting anything?

I'm in 'Sconsin too! Live in a burb of the BrewCity.
If you ever need someone to help wrench, etc., LMK!

Do they open the M Mile road coarse to bikes too? I know they do during the season on Thursday nights for the 1/8mi drags.

Thanks Todd!

It truly is a blast. I do not believe they open the Mile for bikes. Our racing organization rents the track out. Also I dont think I'd want to take a bike out there! The "mile" portion of track is nice but the road course part in the infield is VERY dirty and slick.
