omfg, Talk about a POS track team. They let it burn for about a miniut before getting over to it. It should have been burning for about 5 seconds tops. I mean, they were at the launch.
I would be one very pissed vett owner.

that would be the worst thing ever. a zo6 non the less
04-14-2005, 08:44 AM
that sux ballz for the 'vette...
04-14-2005, 08:45 AM
Wow... atleast it did not burn up the line to the tank....
:: BOOM ::
oww. that would have been worse.. most of the ppl that were right there... were right there, just watching... andd the douch with the cam.... he seemed the closest, did not even go to the driver who ran right in his direction to see if he was ok. The guy with the camera is the exact person you do not want driving on the street, I can see him racing someone and leting the person crash as hhe drives off not giving a crap.

I was just thinking, "wow, that sucker is burning awweful long". yes, truly a suck ass track team. i wonder if they were storing the fire extinguishers next to their m80's and cans of PBR.
edit: it also just crossed my mind, why the crap was a Z06 on happy gas when running a prelude? the vette could have started in 3rd and beat that honda.

Agreed cpyder, the guy was being an asshat.
I also agree with what someone said about the track crew not doing anything for at least a minute. They could have saved alot of damage to that car.

yah and you can tell their even more retarded when the second guy with the fire exstinguisher hits the other guy with the blast from it...you see the white smoke go plummiting into his face.....idiots

I thought it was silvia s13 ? None the less I agree.
04-14-2005, 02:15 PM
lol that video holder is a douchebag....you hear that guy who said..does the insurance cover that?
04-14-2005, 02:22 PM
haha , he did spray it in that guys face didnt he..he shoulda hit him.
04-14-2005, 05:39 PM
wow that was pretty nuts...i feel bad for the vete owner although i dont know why he was spraying so early.......i guess he wanted to get the best time he could get. But man yeah i wasalso wondering ummmm why is that thing stil burning, wheres the crew.

Here is a "tribute" video someone from that guys car group made.
Watch how long the field crew stands there while it burns.

Why did the vette guy waste his time with n02 racing a POS?????
04-14-2005, 07:17 PM
Along with "whys" of "New Coke" and "Crystal Pepsi", that will probably forever remain a mystery.
04-14-2005, 07:37 PM
Man, I wish I would have went to the dragstrip on saturday! I would have seen that! *grrr*
It sucks for the 'vette, but at least cars can be replaced!
As to why he used NOS. Wouldn't you if you wanted the fastest time? [???:)] Call me stupid, but I know I would have used the happy gas too (if I wanted the best time)! So what if it was a 14 second car next to him.
04-14-2005, 07:51 PM
Damn I feel sorry for the guy in the vette but i love that tribute video!
04-14-2005, 09:30 PM
ok now i dont want NOS
04-14-2005, 09:32 PM
LOL y2k..that's exactly what i thought after watching that. YYYYYeeaaa, I'll spend the 3k for the blower instead, please!
04-15-2005, 09:07 AM
Okay, sorry, it wasn't a prelude, I think it was an early 240sx (or 200 sx, whatever) still, it had a multiple liter disadvantage.

Wasn't that at Great Lakes Dragaway?
