Interesting car, not sure how many drag racer your going to find on this form. Considering that my hayabusa powered Radical SR3 calls for an engine (punched out to 1500.....custom crank, rods, pistons) refresh after 30hrs, whats your turbo call for .....refresh after 8-10 hours of drag-strip use?

Hi,
well, i didnt built it for drag racing, its more for track days, hill climbing and even daily use,
its not meant to drag race all day long ofcours, we done the TOTB to see how it handles in straight line also.
i dont know who built your engine, but mine was built by Holeshot racing UK, one of the best( if not the best one )of bike engine tuners
in the UK, which holds also for the bike 1 mile speed record for the UK- 257.4mph ! , Holeshot Racing : Motorcycle tuning, engine tuning, turbocharging, dynojet, hayabusa turbo, turbo hayabusa, land speed record, dynojet, powercommander, motec, dynojet northern ireland, dyno testing northern ireland, turbo motorcycle
relaibility was one of my main concerns , so its all about how you tune the engine to it limits,
at the coming event we'll upload some videos from the track , so you will see how it corners too.

cheers

i'm sure slicks + weight of the motor over the rear wheels helps.
