Not the usual topic for this forum but I thought I would share just the same.  This is heads-up drag racing.  Pretty much the only rules are: 1) max 632ci, with a weight break for small block(less than 485 inches) 2) Only nitrous or all motor allowed.  That's it. 

Here's the qualifying list:


And here is a video from first round, sorry, no sound as it is slo-mo:

And for reference, here a pic of the #1 qualifier:

Looks like those Mustangs didn't beat you up this time. How did you finish?

Great showing Kevin... with a "MAN" pedal to boot!!! ClapClap   

I'm betting there aren't too many on that qualifying-list that had to shift-gears on their own...

We had a technical difficulty in 2nd round. Wink  Not to worry as I restarted and drove off the track.  Just need some new rings.  It sure was on a pass if it wasn't for the sneeze. LOL

That round was run at 1:52am so it really didn't matter as the race was called after that round.  The Mayflies were covering the track causing unsafe racing conditions.  Seriously.

That looks like a Funny car engine explosion. I'll bet that one got your attention? I am guessing it didn't do your new hood scoop a lot of good?

Well, at least you roasted a few of them.  I was standing about 15' away when I took this vid and I had to turn away because I forgot my ear plugs.  Talk about fire breathing loud!

By the way, here is n2oJoe's Mustang.  (It is really a show car that goes really fast)

I went to the John Holt Nitrous Race at National Trails Raceway on Friday night right after GAD18 and Kevin's car was the loudest car of the 8 in the field. That side exit exhaust really makes some thunder.
