pick I would think the Turbo idea would be cool, it would just be the building boost problem on the rocks and trails to get the HP to kick in with the turbo, and dealing with turbo lag. Instead of good old displacement that is there when you stomp on the gas.

whitebuffalo i wouldnt turbo charge mine unless it had a diesel powering it

i think a turbo on a jeep would be cool in a "look what i can do" sort of way, but totally impractical IMO. to each his own though

Yeah... lambo would have a hell of a time in the straights... however, I think he would catch back up in the twisties... Busa = straight-line bullet...

White93ARB Good luck with the sport bike on dirt. The dirt bike on street works. Anyone seen Supermotards? Dirt bikes with sport bike wheels/tires/brakes, pretty cool. KTM has some cool ones.

GrnTJ You could always use a sport bike where a dirt bike is used. Or vise versa

White93ARB OK Triple...I kindof see where your coming from. But the motors they use are overhead-cam 4 cylinders. I've seen more guys with V-Twins using superchargers than I've seen on the 4 cylinder sport bikes. Turbo seems to be a big thing with them, and I'm sure theres good reason. These bikes are highly refined, every little change has a lot of reason, so I'm sure theres reasons for why they use turbos. One probably being it puts no drag on the crank, no belts to break, basically a simple system compared to a supercharger, in my eyes. These guys just hold on tight, I guess. Aren't superchargers more of a low-rpm thing, anyways? These bikes are definately not low rpm, ever. From launch on the 2 step, to crossin the finish line, they're tach'n.
11-25-2007 02:06 PM
Triple88a just out of curiosity, wouldnt you want a supercharger on a bike instead of a turbo? Reason for that is turbo will give you quite more boost once it spools and the hit of it spooling up is quite harsh so it wont pull much but once the boost hits it may even throw you off the seat vs a supercharger that has steady hp increase therefore making a bike easier to control.

Toby, thats very nice, i bet homeless will be following you to work every day waiting to get some fries

I have dialup so I can't watch your vid; Is it the TopGear with the Gallardo vs the 1098? Thats a good one. Anyone seen the TopGear when the Brits come to Alabama, buy thousand dollar beater cars, and paint things on them they hope to piss off the Alabama boys with. Things such as 'Nascar sucks', 'Man Love rules', 'I'm Bi', and my favorite, 'Country and western is rubbish'. They end up getting basically chased out of town by a truck full of hillbillys and their dogs. Its funny seeing people who couldn't be more British in the thick of the Midwest.

haha 17 years old... you're a funny old man.

I'm so sorry that you havent gotten your info right. With your experience i'd assume you would have so much more knowledge about boost. Let see, small turbo can be used with a waste gate so you can get boost at low rpm at about 1krpm. You can even use twin turbo if you'd like. Pretty much it would gain rpm in the lows and the waste gate would keep the turbo from over spinning. Thats how you get low end power...

Based on the previous comments, its not dis-respectful Trip has a point about the waste gate. But still, I say just swap in a diesel. That is my goal before I graduate from college. Nice torque with a diesel, and u can run it on cheap veggie oil which makes ur exhaust smell like Mcdonald's

White93ARB My work makes a bunch of parts for turbo bikes, they're bad. Hayabusas around 1400cc's, running 20+ pounds of boost, and nitrous, with no wheelie bar, doing 200mph 1/4 miles. And these would guys drag race these bikes on the street, but now they have Grudge racing events at tracks to discourage the street racing. Anyone on the East Coast know about this?

your right I dont have much to live for.. but I will feel the something you will never have the balls for.

BABDBAT Sport bikes and all motorcycles for that matter are amazing machines... yes deadly if used improperly, however, cagers are also responsible for motorcycle fatalities... Experienced motorcycle riders are better vehicle operators as well... more aware of their surroundings and not worried about fixing the radio or dropping their cup of starbucks...

Now that my rant is over back to the engine topic... Turbo has its benefits as well as bigger V8's... Turbo tends to be a sleeper..... V8 has raw HP... Diesel chipped out... gas mileage as well as settings that allow you to set the engine to consume less fuel or turn it up and smoke the hell out of a lot of cars....

This is also not entirely true... they are a lot of fun when the rubber side is down, but also enjoyable when only one wheel is down....
