I tried to look this up because I'm confused. First from what I found if this is the annual Lightning Lap test it looks like they use the Grand Course for that test. I did find where a Porsche 918 Spider lapped Grand in 2:43 in 2014. I'm confused though because assuming this is the Full Course a 1:43 seems to be a very respectable lap time for a car. A Motorcycle can't touch that. If the lap time is actually 2:43 (which would make sense in the context that a bike could be 40 seconds faster) then that seems very slow for a million dollar car. A Miata maybe might be that slow, but a high performance Porsche?

On the subject of cars being faster than bikes, I think it's interesting that the bike record at Road Atlanta is 1:23 something back in the day before the chicane and the new T12. It's impossible to really compare at a professional level at VIR because cars and bikes don't run the same configuration, but RA can be compared back when bikes and cars ran the same track. I was watching the Petite LeMan a few years ago on TV and the prototype cars were running seven or eight seconds faster than than that (1:15 or so)...in the dark. Qualifying times I think were about 1:12. I can't imaging driving Road Atlanta at that speed with only headlights to see by.

Gould's been exposed to too many game rays  :D     

Joe let me know when those 1:35 cars visit, I'd like to go observe that.

I told you guys wrong. 1:35.4 is the record for full

4 tires vs 2 will always win in breaking and cornering

And made sure to mention that their kit was strongly suggested by Mike Ruhe of Performance Riding Experience.

Thanks!! I need you guys to get PRE in good with these people so that when I finally get one they will give the PRE folks a good discount. Ideally, we can just get Ruhe to be a reseller for all the parts we need ;-)

Can I use my motion pro throttle off my sv on  my 2006 gsxr 600? Potentially need to buy new cables or is the entire unit bike specific? Thanks.

4 wheels will move your body.  2 wheels will move your soul.

When a car starts having a similar weight to HP ratio but more importantly able to add traction via aerodynamics, that’s when they get the advantage back over a motorcycle.

Cost a hell of a lot more that way though.

Or at least that’s my perspective

Agreed. Not sure on that comparison?

The fast cars (not the car and driver guys) run the full course in times that are comparable to the record for a bike on North course. I'm wanting to say 1:24 something for the record at full by one of the Muscle Milk cars. Bikes just don't hold a candle to the cars with good drivers.
