That would be one rough landing if he came down from a big front end lift off the line. And if a belt went bad during the lift he might come crashing down with broken hips.

Weird looking.

I cannot get my head around that.

I think the theory is that it will prevent wheels up attitude. HOWEVER, it's be like riding on the tip of an out of control rocket :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: Definitely take some 'getting used to' 8) 8) 8)

I am not sure about this one... having trouble understanding the theory behind it. Maybe some saftey benifits?? but I am not knowledgable about dragsters... it is just weird.

This is what happens when a dragster crashes. Makes you wonder where his cockpit would be here.

Careful Parker, that might cause you to have flashbacks. (San Angelo) 1999.

Easy now! I try to forget some stuff!! When the owner of the San Angelo track came down for the really bracket finals last year he said they went to 1/8th mile. I told them I wrecked a car there, cause of a bump in the left lane at the finish line. He said its still there, but they had went to 1/8 mile. And mine didn't look that bad. Remember there's just two kinds of racers.... those that have been upside down and those that will.lol. Thats why I went to smaller engine and just concentrate on going rounds. To old for for that track record sh#t. I sure am looking forward to racing in Penwell(Odessa) if they get it going this year, we got a lot a great memories their.
