RS, this just means one thing. Time to get a HEMI.

P.S.: Rudra I just realised your initials are 'RS". Pretty cool.

RS, HEMI engines were developed by Chrysler somewhere in the 1950s. They have a hemispherical shaped combustion chamber and hence the name. These had a higher thermal efficiency and hence produced more power. Also valves are on the opposite sides of the head, which does not limit it's size, resulting in increased airflow. These engines were made popular by muscle cars, like the Hemi Cuda. The latest one to sport a HEMI is the Chrysler 300C. I guess you get these engines to your specs off the shelf now as crates. Would perfectly complement Psycho's Conti, though not his wallet.

P.S.: I guess the HEMI is from the medieval period too.

Did any one see wheelies performed by the bikers. The two-stroke bike guy absolutely rocked and even the guy in Yamaha R1 did an amazing job and I was surprised that a hayabusa was beaten by Yamaha R1 in the drag. This year's speed autorun was ruled by the bikes and nothing exciting as far as cars were concerned. Last but not the least the Peugoet 205 really surprised me.

Was the Hayabusa black in colour??

If yes, nothing really surprising about that......... that Hayabusa has been beaten even in the last drags.....

IMO, one of the reasons could be those big rear tyres which arent stock, provide no major traction.... and act as a weight drag..... the engine would spend quite a few of its horses moving those big fat rear tyres....
Experts what say??

Not an experts comment, but the bike was fine, it was the rider that was the problem!!
