    Default Got a Bike, MR2 swap question! P.S..im new here so thae it easy !!!

    I have a 03 CBR600RR...custom painted (all black) full race exhaust Gorilla alarm full race rubber (street legal) DID chain after market under tail & inner fender 28,000 on the motor...show room bike! I love it to death...but I have a guy that wants to trade me for a 91 JDM Toyota MR2 Turbo....I love the car & looked over it (hard core) it looks clean & he has done allot of work to it...My question is...is it a fare trade.. I think it is but im a bike guy not a car guy..I know allot about cars...but only domestic ones any help is good & thanx in advance!

    hard to say...

    Mr2's are really good cars as far as Japanese cars go. their mid engine design and excellent balance...let alone the 3s-gte motor, made them excellent at handling the corners, and are pretty quick in the straights. however they are a bit of a death trap too if you get to much over steer.

    however they aren't really good winter cars. due to the mentioned over steer. it still is an aging sports car so you will have to put money into it. if it has been well maintained that will help greatly with the cost of owing the car. Another thing to point out is that these cars are harder to work on because of the small engine bay and the fact that the motor comes out of the bottom of the car. it can come out from the top....but this is very difficult. it would probably be more money to insure as well.

    Now in my opinion....and from a fellow rider, i wouldn't make the trade. i own a 2001 honda rc51 and i love it. i would not trade it for a mr2. if i really wanted one...i would just buy one. you can get them cheap enough and they are easy to mod

    I ran an 11.5 on mine..but thats in Ontario & I have been draging bikes for 13 years!..I looked it up & with a $300 mod the MR2 can run 13.1...than again..its all about the rider/driver...its only a 2 second difference..the car may not be faster but it DOES pull harder than the bike! (or at least it feels like it does)

    Are you arguing a point that an mr2 is faster than your bike? Your a fucking idiot you asked for opinions I gave you a proven fact and you still think you are in the right. Trade your fucking bike for a car but when it is slower than your bike send me a PM that says I'm sorry theken.

    Quick google search for 03 CBR led me to times anywhere in the 9.9s to 11.3 so let's say 12.5 here. Unless you are the worst rider around without heavy mods the mr2 is nowhere near that at all.

    K go drop 5 grand into your mr2 and hope its as fast as your bike. I have been in my buddies mr2 many times and it was quick. I had a 300zx that was faster. Nothing compares to a bike. I have many years of fast cars and now the fastest bike. But what do I know? Enjoy your car

    the "fastest bike"??? eat a dick bro...my buddy has a boosted Busa.. drag him..im not droppin a dime on the car..its a trade ( the bike is only worth 5500)..the car is running 310 hp. I know nothin compares to a bike.( like I said bin riding for 13 years)..but than again thats a matter of personal opinion im not a fuckin Kid..I have tons of time logged in fast cars & there isnt A bike I haven't rode.. I spent 13 years on bikes 4 years as a stunt rider..I raced the tracks at Bowmanvill & mosport in Toronto I have built street fighters....I was born at the race track Bro...I just wanted input on the trade...not your fuckin attitude..& I told you B4..I thank you for your input...but like an 11 teen year old..you couldn't shut your mouth!!!

    Also what does my bike or a 300 lb dude on a bike have any thing to do with your arguement? You asked so we would be comparing you on your bike to you in an mr2 the mr2 stock here on stock boost will run close to 15 seconds. Up your boost you will get mid to low 14s. And yes I know what I am talking about I can google fast mr2s too but you have an essentially stock mr2 you will be disappointed
