I hope you know how to ride your bike. With no experience, or even some experience, but no drag experience, that DSM is going to get a holeshot on you. And I doubt you will be able to catch up after that. If it was 300-350, I would say it might be a closer race, but not 400+ whp. Your only hope (and this coming from a DSM owner), is that he breaks down on the launch lol. Hope he snaps that 3 bolt rear or breaks the tranny. Unless of course he has already upgraded that all because its already been broke.

If you can launch your bike hard it'll be close but those awd dsms can really jump off the line. They aren't impressive from a roll from what i've seen. 400awhp is running very healthy. If you are confident on your launch i'd say run him for 50 bucks.

Depends on the type/bearing/size of turbo he is running.

My vote is that you'll get spanked. But again, this depends on his set up.

still it's awd and heavy. Without a doubt it's an impressive car. RWD and less weight will own with less power.

you better get ur ass out side and practice your launch before you have 200 less in your wallet.. i beat a 400 hp corvette.. not by much.. but i did.. but an awd talon is gonna beat me.. and i've been riding/drag racing my bike for awhile.. tell him u wanna race from a roll or something.. haha you shoulda took that 200 dollars to the strip club.. cuz either way.. your losing it..

For a talon to run below a 12 in the quarter mile would probably take more than 400awhp (especially on street tires, unprepped track). Even an inexperienced rider should be able to pull that on the street. COME ON SON RACE HIM.

Then after it's upgraded, it gets broke again! lol
sorry, had to rip on the dsm's. :poke


I was beating bikes back when I had the vortech on my mustang. And the vortech is slow compared to the turbo I have now.

If you cant beat a 400 hp car with a 600 thats pathetic.
If hes challanging you he mustbe runing 400 rwhp before he hits some nos.

Owning a 1gb TSi, I'd say you'd win. If he's not on any EMS or datalogger (DSMLink for example) and he isn't doing a stutterbox launch.
400horse is good for around mid 12's to high 11's. Shit, even the stock 14b has been taken to better than them times. www.dsmtimes.org if you don't believe me.

Do it for $50 and let us know. Then when/if you lose ask Rich from pinks how many lengths you should get and how many spark plug wires he should disconnect.

And, the reason I'm looking for a bike is because my DSM keeps breaking down. I bought it 2 years ago and it's had more downtime than drive time. More $ into it then I bought it for. But then again, when it's done I'll be eating R6's :)

(I'm looking at an 01' R6 right now so this story does interest me.)

i honestly think u should beat him in 1/8. as long as u know how to drive the thing and dont bog down in 1st..he shouldnt be a prob.

the 1/4, i think it would be close...but if play ur cards right and leave ur bike hangn at high rpms...u should be able to nudge him. play ur gears right....use ur 2nd 4 sure
