Fast and cool, I'll check it out in Hot Rod.

It takes real balls to drive a doorslammer of any kind that fast. Amazing watching any shorter wheelbase car that's any faster than about 8 seconds in the 1/4 IMHO. Those cars are a handful to drive.

A few years ago we had a French foreign exchange student from Forbach,France. He wanted to know what was so special about driving a dragster or drag racing, he said that it must be easy.

It's anything but easy.

Moran is amazing.

this past weekend on powerblock the guys from horsepower went to a old school drig event that had the bantams, slingshots, and the nitro methanes running. it was freakin sweet to watch that. they feature a lot of those things on Pass Time too. they also showed an awesome straight axle car called shaky puddin... insane 56 running 10's.
