    Its tottaly balievible...... Whats so hard to believe?

    The car has literly 3x as much rubber on the road, let alone the power to weight ratio being very close im sure between the two. The car can dig the corner ALOT harder then the bike. Im sure the car didnt have R compound tires so why should the bike?? And if you gave them both R compound tires your gonna see the same shit but faster laps for the both of them.

    thats pretty much what they were saying in the video
    there are MANY cars more suited to whooping the shit out of a bike
    even the AWD (that everyone on this board seems to jizz all over themselves about) actually HURTS the performance on a dry track

    a decently setup car can brake later into the corner, and hold a higher speed through the corner
    the bike takes it on the srtaights but then falls back again in the next corner
    meaning that after every corner the bike is playing catchup... eventually there is just too much space to try and make up for
