Went 3 wide with him and a R1 completely impromptu, ended up putting bus lengths on the viper and cars on the bike. Kid came up to us in the gas station (our brakes literally smoking like a chimney still.) "Dude I will trade you cars right now." Lmao he was dead serious too.


Anyways, always puts a smile on my face when people smash them like that.
Thanks it was really fun. I knew they werent expecting it bc they didnt ask about my car, and it looks stock from the outside besides exhaust.

Been trying to get a run with some of these ferraris and 911 turbos i see all the time up here but no dice.

I dont care what type of supercharger it is if its driven of a belt from the crank its does not need brake boosting..lol The reason turbo cars brake boost is becuase its driven by flowing exhaust gases .. Hold down the pedal make more exhaust gases forcing the turbine yada yada = spool turbo into positive pressure..

Supercharger driven off of a XXXX rpm rotating crank is gonna be in boost at the moment your on it..Brake boosting a belt driver supercharged car is a good way to eat the belt and have it trash everything it hits in the engine bay.

it's definitely not the same as brake boosting a turbo car and it doesn't yield near the same result but getting the rpm up while maintaining a constant speed sure seems to help on my truck as soon as I let off the brake. it's definitely quicker that way than just stomping gas on go.

I will continue to base my reactions on real world results, not theory.Thanks for your concern though.

sure it even feels better in a n/a vehicle but its not brake boosting lol.

not concerned brochacco.. just chuckled a bitt at brake boosting and spercharger in the same sentence.. good luck on not throwing a belt and screwing shit up...But then again its prolly worth it... since your building up soo much boost while brake boosting.
