I've let several door car guys drive my cars in the past, most now own dragsters. Ya get hooked fast.

yes you do i went from a door car with a 350 small block that ran 6.30's in a 2850lbs door car to a dragster that ran 5.20s and went from 1.40 60ft to a 1.12 which was a huge difference and got me hooked automatically

I actually had a older guy I race with 60-62, his camaro best 60ft 1.36 ran 6.2's, my dragster at the time 1.10, 4.90's. His car was the fastest thing he had drove untill then, he was smiling ear to ear when he was done

Let another buddy that ran 8.6's with a 55 chevy drive it, got down to 10 cars in a 10k race first time he doubled it with me. He now owns a 04 mullis that runs 4.5's. I drove it when he got it, nothing like wheels in the air to the 60ft in a suspended dragster, [email protected] on the motor sure was a fun ride :lol:

Thats what happened to me. I spent my life cussin dragsters, then when I took mine on a "test drive" I couldnt believe how awesome it was.

And the first time you work on it, you will think that you have been doin it wrong all these years...lol
