Am I confused, I thought 1000cc was the largest motorcycle motor allowed in Bmod.

Thanks for the info. The Hayabusa must be 2 valve. Someday I may replace my FF with a Bmod car.

My Legrand is also available as a roller, ready to swap in a Hayabusa drivetrain!

I am new to Bmod.  How does a car end up being a roller?  Are the motors overworked or fragile?

I have not seen any FB cars running in Bmod. I like the open wheel and the FF like suspension. Are they legal for BM? Are they competitive? Heavier than min?

Pretty much answered my Q. FB min weight is 1000 lb without driver. I would guess you could not reduce weight by 160lb. Darn!

By removing the R1 engine in the LeGrand he posted above?

I doubt the motorcycle engines are fragile. Oiling system may need some mods to work in a car platform.

That sounds  like saying Formula V can run in CM( if you don't care about driving a non competitive car).
Seems like all the BM cars at nationals were LeGrands or something similar.

Am I reading the GCR's wrong? Is the weight of a FB car 1000lb with driver? I saw one that said it weighed 790lb empty.

My car is a roller because I just acquired a fresher R1 engine and pulled the previous one. I can either finish the install or sell the newer engine on ebay. It was 'almost' sold last month and the buyer was ready to install suzuki power. I can go either way...

A modern motorcycle engine is a pretty amazing piece of machinery.  In addition to having a tremendous power to weight ratio, it is generally also very reliable.  I suppose it is possible to build a grenade engine, but I have run the same engine for eight years now.  The most runs we have put on the car in one season is over 300. I have not added up the total number of runs on my engine, but it is probably well over 1500.
