So I break out Z old power to weight calculator. The P1 McLaren is 647hp per ton. The H2 however...

[email protected] pounds = 840
[email protected] pounds = 928
[email protected] pounds = 1160
[email protected] pounds = 1290

So it looks like with very little effort or expense or risk to the engine we will have access to almost exactly DOUBLE the power to weight ratio of the McLaren P1.

For further reference, the Veyron SS that did 268mph only needed 635.

Even more fun - a skydiver does the 1/4 in 10.8 seconds at 126mph. Gadson beat a skydiver on the H2 by roughly 2.5 seconds and 40 mph. If Gadson (or you, you lunatic) stays on the gas, the skydiver continues to fall behind and never catches up. Take that gravity.

Gnarly.

It does put it in a little bit of perspective when you think about it that way. I wonder what vehicles out there could beat the H2 in a drag race. I am guessing there are few.

With 4 wheels? None. There were a couple up there like the Comparo T1 but they were all UK only cars. The SSC Aero was the only US approved car with a ratio in the 900's. The SS Veyron had 1200 HP. The P1 has a thousand.

I'm starting to get why they kept quiet about the numbers. There's brochure racer bragging galore (the entire Hayabusa nation would've lined up if Guinness had given it their blessing) but probably only a handful of riders experienced enough to use that sorta insanity. So jack the price, downplay the numbers, put a few standard hurdles in the way, separate the wheat from the chaff - all makes perfect sense now. I bought one for many reasons but primarily because I've been racing for 2 decades and I saw what they were doing. I'm still completely shocked at the arrogance of the guys who think it really only makes 200hp - and even if it really was limited to that - I'm shocked 95% of the internet warriors have no idea what a blower does for a power band.

But again, everybody bitching about how it's not light enough, powerful enough or prettier are the same dummies who would've bought one for the wrong reasons anyway. Pretty brilliant Kawi.

I probably should stop researching the thing because now its actually starting to scare me a bit and I have nerves of steel. Still stoked though.

I am banking on the stated power numbers being low; the weight does not bother me too much either way as I am coming from large cruisers.
