I dont think traction wil be too bigger problem. Obviously you could make it spin up if you really wanted to but I dont think it would be to hard to control. Bike engines dont have the same levels of torque than car engines with the same sort of bhp. Im sure its the torque that spins the wheels up.

Trust me when I say that there is plenty of torque to spin the wheels! The myth that bike engine hardly produce any torque is just that... a myth!

If I remember rightly the R1 puts out about 90ish lb/ft show me an a-series 998 that'll make that.....

Also the Hayabusa makes a fairly respectable 130ish lb/ft

I know what your saying but 9Olb/ft ent that much. Yeah its going to pan pretty much anything that sits next to it but put a Turbo A series next to that or a Vauxhall XE powered one and youll soon realise what torque is. Ive been in a tuned up S with that type of torque and its all perfectly usable. Ive even been in a Vtec mini with over 120lb/ft and that just launches with no wheelspin. I cant see 90lb/ft being a problem.

LOL I thought that was a plus point not having the dredded torque steer! :nugget: :grin:

I know it's not a huge amount of torque as my old impreza was running at about 280odd lb/ft!! But it feels like plenty in a mini! :grin: :grin:

Oh it certanly will be but I just dont think it will be as hard to drive as the usuall engine conversions. I personally think it will be really usable. Only when you really nail it and take it up to those silly rev limits will it really start to go balistick. :grin:

Sorry we're both kinda making the same point! :nugget: :grin: Plenty of torque to be damn amusing yet still nice and controlable! :grin:

And as for understanding it.

I get to design aircraft for a living, so I do kind of understand a few of the basics! :wink:
