Now that is one fast little Skyline. One of my buddies from school knows a guy that has a Hayabusa. Goodness are those things insane. Way too much power for a motorcycle.

That Hayabusa wasn't pushing at all. Look at the driver, he wasn't even sitting aero when he was going by the camera.


Point remains that the dude in the Skyline put at least 20g into that car, while the Busa was stock and probably bought for 10g in the first place.

Yea, I thought the same thing. The guy driving the Hayabusa had to deal with that parachute of a dress thing he was wearing. Think if some of that got caught in the tire. That would be no good.

I'd be scared to death on the bike.

And I just love Skylines.

dude the skyline had him waaaay before they got near the camera. hayabusas are not the fastest thing in the world you know, i'm sure the skyline runs at least very low 10'*

Bah, Hayabusa'* are probably the quickest production land vehicles on the planet that run on gasoline. I've seen stock ones hit 9'* trapping at 170+ in the 1/4 and modded ones in the 7'*. I've seen them outrun a 1000hp viper (somewhere there is video of this).

Did you notice the torque steer on the Skyline as it accelerated at the beginning of the video.
That beast must be putting out 800 hp. It'* a lot lighter than a Viper. The 600 hp Viper beat the stock Busa but not by much.

it takes talent and even more importantly cojones to launch a hayabusa(actually, any bike in general). there was a turbo busa at a few tnt'* last this season that ran 10.6 on one wheel for 1000ft. then he dropped the front hard and smacked the downpipe and ended his Wednesday evening
