2014 Wild Rides Part 1 | NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing - YouTube

By the end of the video, i was slack-jawed and bug-eyed. Watch it full-screen in HD. It's incredible.
Seems appropriate, but have you ever been to a NHRA event with top fuel dragsters (like those cars)?

Seriously, even if you aren't that into racing you should go. There is nothing like witnessing two 10,000 horsepower cars scream down a 1,000 foot track in less than 4 seconds. It will change everything you think you know about fast cars, combustion engines and kinetic energy :eek:

There used to be a track a few minutes from my house. They tore it down this summer, and they're building townhouses there. :(

Gotta get me one o those.

On the other hand... Nope!

People think I'm nuts, at least there's virtually no chance of my bike randomly exploding.
Funny enough, the majority of the time those engines grenade the cause is something rather common like a blown head gasket. That usually leads to the more catastrophic failure/huge fireball/concussion etc.
