I was talking to Bob Hunt, the editor of Model Aviation, confirming that I will be covering the R/C Soaring National Championships again this year. This will be my third year of doing photojournalism for them on this event, last year you might recall I was on the cover of the magazine! Bob and I got talking about his other hobby, high performance sport bikes. One of the bikes Bob owns and rides is a Suzuki Hayabusa, probably the fastest production bike ever made. I mentioned I rode for many years, but now do it with 4 wheels instead of two with my Z06. Bob also is a Vette fan and has owned several, so then I mentioned I saw this video of a Vette pulling a 'busa. I could tell by the tone of his voice he thought I was full of it, he was quick to reply "that is a 9 second bike." I know, I said it was from a roll. He said, "that bike has a top end of 184", and I mentioned that some Vettes could top that. The subject switched around, and he got another call, but Bob, this video is for you...
Here is a video of a Corvette running a Hayabusa and taking it.
