Feeling 7000 horsepower ripping by at 300+ MPH is a rush.

And at one of the local tracks we do with PCA.

a lot different than Bandemere in the 70's

Ahhhhhh....Top Fuel.

I wish I'd been there Friday, I am almost every year, but I'm stuck in Hawaii for 6 weeks. What? No sympathy?

I like the lesser classes that use nitromethane as well, it's fun to see a supercharged car on alcohol ready to launch, at 6000-7000 rpm, while the non-supercharged nitro car waits at idle...still sounding meaner, and still capable of accelerating just as hard from a dead stop. No need to rev, as much torque as you want, anywhere in the rev range.
