Saw the Volvette at the first IKEA meet around this time last year. Crazy wagon. Up to this point, however, I hadn't seen any of it's actual performance videos (assuming this is the same car)

Watch the tach on the bike, he's not pushing it. Not saying the car's not fast, just not as fast as a big bore bike

Re: (Ride R)

He does just roll out in lower gears and then pulls up a bit in the gear he punches in and then he runs out of steam. Can't expect an R1 to pull hard after 175+ mph.

Aerodynamics of a street bike are actually comparable to a city bus.<p>lol maybe exaggerating but the R is around 0.33 drag and a GSX-R is around 0.46

Re: (Impulse922)

that's crazy!<br>It doesn't even look like that bike is racing, but looking at your posts, I guess it is.
