Sorry guys, just had to make a post. Got off the scale and I lost enough to make 1 hp on the R450. I drive a lot for work so I've put on a few pounds during the last 2 years on the road. By the time I'm back in my old shape I will have gained 4.2 hp. If that doesn't make you want to run an extra mile on the treadmill I don't know what will. :)

im pretty fat myself, but i have found that this allows me to launch at a way higher rpm when im up on the tank, usually i get an edge when you skinny folks are trying to keep the front end down.

Oh and i usually have a power dount before racing so the sugar gets me going :lol:
I am curious, how many lbs equals 1 horsepower?
Typically its about 1 hp for every 7lbs but i can vary depending on the actual power to weight ratio of whatever your driving, car, truck, quad, lawnmower etc. :lol:
