  1. does anyone know if there are any videos in existence on Ian Ffisk the Kiwi rider featured in two wheels magazine issue 12/05 page 54, he rides the "super quadbike" in the hill climb races ?
    would really love to see what a gixxer 1000 engine in an ATV frame doing 230kph on the dirt looks like these things look awesome and I cant seem to find any reference to them on the net

  2. Australian Speedway 'Compact Speedcars' are permitted to use up to 1000cc motorcycle 4 valve engines. I can tell you they honk along !
  3. heres some of the specs from this thing .... gives me goose bumps

    at the 2004 silverstone race to the sky ... 15km climb , from 1500 feet to 5000 feet up a 1:11 gradient , with 137 corners in 8 minutes 41 seconds . the record being 8 minutes 10 seconds set by a 1000bhp suzuki Escudo

    the quad puts out 130.5 kilowatts at the rear wheels , weighs 240 kg and a top speed of 230kph
