    I must admit my gut feeling is you're doomed.

    If both are OEM then the little 200cc will win. Power to weight once the tyres stop spinning will always win.
    Nowt like cheering on the underdog so tips and hints will bring your time down.
    Have a pal who can look after your spare wheel, jack,rear seat.
    Anyone know if it'll be worth depowering the ECU for a re-learn?
    Or drop in a stroked V6 along with a devil autobox, bolt on a charger then it'll be a different result. To see what its all about check out the V6 forum. Plenty of those guys drag their cars so there should be some proven advice.
    Best of luck fella

    Depending on the gearing on the KTM motocross he will have you in second gear and leave you for dust..

    EDITED didn't see the KTM clearly.

    I had a mate want to do this with his 125cc, I knew he'd beat me off the mark but soon as I got to the 40mph range and could best utilise the VTEC - he got left in the dust. 2.4 vs 125cc is a little different than 1.8 vs 200cc mind :Whistle:
