    We were discussing at work today, and couldn't agree :-

    Would it be quicker to accelerate from 0-100 mph
    Would it be quicker to anchor up from 100 mph to total stop ?

    Ninja owner said accelerate, ex-Blackbird owner said anchor up.

    The topic of discussion at the time was an R1, so whats the group opinion
    based on performance of say an R1 or R6 ?

    Easy, 100 - 0. Just ride into a brick wall

    100-0 is quicker - air resistance on your side.

  6. Your definitive (for this year) answer is in this month's TWO magazine...

    Well, that is closer to me (less than 20miles) than I was to you a couple
    of weeks ago, so apart from the fact I will by at HW, what will be your
    excuse for not calling in ? :)

    Dunno, but a top ten speed hill climb car would beat both of them on a
    literally 0-100-0 test (and beat a Formula 1 car).

    I accept without question that a hill climber might be able to do that
    but an F1 car is a bit harder. All that downforce, all that contact
    patch and the best brakes money can have custom built leaves me not so

    Although it does make me wonder what sort of machine it would be that
    could make and hold such a record. You'd need something like a top fuel
    dragster to get it up to 100 and an instant reverse to get it back down
    again. I wonder if it could be done in under 53feet?

    It's no fucking argument that your sig sep is broked though.

    Bit of a cheat really as an F1 car on the same gearing as a hill climb
    single seater would be more difficult. A UK (no 5 or even 2.5 Km hills)
    hill climb car that is, where the maximum speed to be geared for is
    only 130 or so at Shelsley. The awesome F1 brakes probably only work
    really well when v. hot (carbon fibre discs ?). Tyre warmers are
    allowed in hill climbs but brakes may only be used extremely hard a few
    Seems to be a problem with my hand produced Google groups attempt
    rather than the Demon Turnpike auto generated version.
