Its a '04 Suzuki gsxr 1000 motor turned sideways with the exhaust facing out the left. Where the sprocket would be on a bike, there is a drive flange hooked to a driveshaft going out back to a narrowed toyota rear end. It uses the stock bike transmission-6 speed sequential-no clutch needed. Weight with me in it is 1200lbs.-power is about 150 hp--12,500 rpm redline.

Nobody can think technical at Alfatina, can't blame 'em eh?

Dunno about anyone else, but I really get a grin out of Sherm's 'dour' manner ... "OK, so let's bring it back to Tits and Tequila then eh?" ... my favourite quote of all time :)

... Don't get me wrong Sherm.. there's still a big fat target pasted all over your rear end :)

Its strange that I come across as 'dour' over the mic--that is the LAST thing whoever has met me would consider that the word to use.  :?:  And yes-I can tell you how to degree cams while staggering + slurring my words-I'm sure I have at some point during a hill weekend.  :toast:

 I credit all my practice time on GTL worth about 5 seconds a run on the hill-plus it has made my brain work at a different pace. It used to be I would blast up a hill and not really know what i did to get there-now a run seems like its in slow motion. One bad? side affect: when i'm loose + mentally ready for a run, A song pops into my head. I never have a choice what actually comes up-sometimes it good some times its just strange. And yes-the Simjunkies Polka came up once. :funk:

GTL helps you to get faster...
You get the Polka in your head while driving...

I hereby proclaim the Simjunkie of the month: She'm!

This is wonderful stuff!

Hah, I hear you there! It is awesome to show up to a new track and already know where you want to be, your first warmup laps at 7/10, up to 9/10 by the end of the first session. :)

The other funny thing is when there is someone in the car with me, we will chat a little. Often times I will be chatting mid drift and not miss a beat, SJ has made me a much more calm and collected communicator while in car. lol

That is SO cool!

Hey, wait a minute.
Wasn't I watched in awe by some youngsters waiting for the bus when I securely yet smoothly slammed and serpentined the CX past a roundabout yesterday after work?
I was, it surely is GTL that is to blame, hahaha.
