Rabbit's partial Post:
It's easy to get by with 100 to 200hp of it and have fun with it. However even that will find the weak links such as driveshafts, axles, u joints, etc. Popular thing around here is to buy a used 6.0 chevy and put a ton of nitrous on it till she blows. They're tuff, cheap motors and the guys usually just laugh when they come apart.
Nothing is more fun than having a motor that you don't care if it blows up or not.
While it might be just about the funniest thing one of those guys did, did they go back in the staging lanes and ask any of those who'll sit in the lanes for up to an hour while their mess gets mopped up how really funny it was? Probably not. Especially the guys with big tires and HP . .

Gotta tell you, from both a former track manager's place and as a racer, nothing pisses me off more than a dick who takes a grenade out on a pass he knows may seal coat the track . . Personally, I always want to mop a 125 race track with the guy who oiled it and then acted like he really didn't give a shit!

I'm not talking down to anyone, but if people really care about their fellow racers, they just don't do that stuff!

I didn't see anywhere in Rabbit's post that it said anything about going to a track and blowing one up so someone could clean up the mess.
If you paid attention Rabbit plays a whole different game than most of us.

Beast, not being a wiseass to Rabbit, but a general comment on stuff that happens all too often on the strip as well.

Up here, three weeks ago, it was 109 in the staging lanes, and we got to wait about another 30 minutes for a clean up for a dickhead who had been beating his chest about how stout his "Cheap" motor was . . It was a ball out there!

It's just something wot pisses me off . . .
