Thumbs down F4 is Slow!

Read this article, thought id share it with you all

I respect Gordon Murray for the Mclaren F1 but what is he on about saying "it was aggravating to ride"

Why are they comparing the 916 to the F4 750 when clearly the 916 has a bigger capacity engine

Rev it Gordon !!! it's not a twin.
Go and buy a 1078RR if you want speed........get THE design and THE speed.
IMO 916 is slow too.

From all my experiences, The speed of a F4-750 is somewhere between a 748R and 996....closer to 996.

the first 750 only made about 110bhp @the rear wheel and weighed about 215kg wet so he's got a point it wasn't the fastest thing on two wheels 916sp how loads more grunt

the only reason they compare the 750 to the 916 cause the 750 would have taken out a 748

Takes out a 748R quite easily too.
Wonder if Gordon has ridden a F4-1000 of any description yet ?

Yep, I have 'duelled' with one of each and I would agree with that

Early 750 was a little under powered compared to Jap stuff at the time of it's launch (2000ish) BUT the 750 evo 3 motor with RG3/etc was more than a match for most 750's

Not everyone reveres the MV like we do. I know so many people who think prefer the looks of my brother's race prepped ninja over my MV for example. Different strokes for different folks! Its all good
