    I remember my first time...

    I had seen a jillion drag races up close and even drove two of my cars down the track, but l went to Bandimere in the mid 90s to see the pro nitros n top fuelers and had that same reaction... Hear it, feel it, smell it, cry.

    No self respecting redneck would cover their ears at a drag race. That's like wearing earplugs to a Slayer show.

    Watching their reactions it reminds me of the first time I rode The Hulk at Universal. I didn't know it doesn't start like a regular roller coaster.

    Until you've seen top fuel dragsters in person you have no concept of how loud they are. Video does not give an accurate portrayal of the incredible volume.

    I HATE that!

    Like, I'm on my way to the grocery store to pick up a cake for the birthday party, right? And then all's of a sudden, BAM!

    I HATE that!

    :agreed:

    But its just “Chump Change” to the sponsors...

    And the motors are even more....especially when you “MIGHT” get 1 full mile out of just one engine if your lucky...:agreed:
