R1 Vs. Hayabusa
Posted 24 October 2008 - 06:25 PM
So i tried to search for this but couldnt really find anything.
Ive been wanting to build/have built a z cars mini for a couple years now, and every year I get closer and closer. My main question is whats better, Hayabusa power or R1 power. Im sure there is alot of personal opinion involved with this and i hope im not opening a can of worms. Just curious to see what ones downfalls are anothers strengths. Thanks alot for any input

To be honest I dont thinkl you will feel cheated by having either. I went for an R1 without thinking as I just could not stretch my budget anymore. If youve got the money Id use it. Otherwise just get what you can afford

the new R1 is a very good engine it revs to 14000 rpm and gives 180 bhp or there abouts
its one of the cleverest bits of engineering ive seen with a really compact design and very light weight
you do have to rev it hard and keep it in the power to make progress when its in the power its awesome the sound it makes and how it does it is really addictive
the balance of the car feels a touch sweeter than the hayabusa basically due to the lighter all up weight i guess its not much but i can tell within two corners if you made me deaf and i hadnt looked
the gearchange on the yamaha is also very good
the hayabusa is faster theres no substitute for CCs and because of the bigger cc it will pull harder off cam and copes generally much better for the novice (to bike engines )driver
the new 2008 hayabusa is a peach with 8 injectors and some trick electronics its bang up to date and as good as it gets
because of this they fetch good money as they are a straight swap for anearly busa which was no mean engine in its own right
someone earlier observed that there wasnt much between them and i would agree in most customers hands they will both tick all the boxes for you if you are out and out racing then its a 2008 hayabusa
for track days and road use the R1 will do fine

Or just build a lighter car like mine and it will be faster than the hayabusa anyway!
Or just build a lighter car and put a busa engine in.
How much does your car weigh? ( I know I'm going to regret asking this?)

Is this the same car you have for sale?
