A safety pit stop was made at 5 minutes and at the end of the race almost half of the fuel was still there, giving about 9 minutes of run-time on a fuel tank.

Any hard numbers??? These have been asked over and over again here in this thread... Peak HP, Peak torque, Bore. stroke... I don't believe to the serious racers, engine sound is really that important... Hey, I could be wrong... Those video clips have already been posted here in this thread... Old news... Fresh info would be nice.
