WHAT'S THE PROCESS YOU GO THROUGH TO BUILD a LAND SPEED BIKE?
First off is evaluating and researching which class to be in. Then the geometry and power of the motorcycle has to be evaluated since it has to reach over 150mph and go through 3 miles to reach that speed, not like drag racing. The salt is always a hard variable to value as well. What is the drag, the airload, the horsepower to push through that air wall – these are all variables we have to consider. We’ve also partnered with Stratasys. They are printing the entire FDM body off of their 3D printing technology to reduce some of these variables. This is the first one body work ever produced on a 3D printer for a land speed bike. The CAD drawings were 100% hand designed by the students in the Helping with Horsepower program. The printer will take 4-5 hours to produce the bodywork. Meanwhile the students will be working under the direction of Lloyd and his team to install the supercharger and other hardware within the Victory Cross Country.
WHY USE A VICTORY?
Victory has always thought outside box. The Victory Vision is the perfect example of this! Laura has loved the bike since the beginning for that very reason. Victory is the maverick brand of the Polaris family. Additionally, the fact that you can supercharge the 106 without a ton of crazy modifications means there is endless potential. The power plant, the transmission can all handle the additions of power and performance, which is what we need to break records.
I’ve always known a Victory could out perform any other bikes. That’s why I’ve dedicated my business to amping up the performance of Victory Motorcycles. It’s a great bike that only has endless potential in the performance sector.
