Myonlycomment is running a few 1/4 mile runs as hard as you can go is really tough on any car.
I wnt to a dragstrip with both my 96' Mystique and my 99' Contour SVT.
I am pretty certain the experience shortened the lifespan of BOTH cars transmissions.
So be forwarned.
Then you have to wait in line to race. if you keep the engine running, it will be too hot to run it's best times.
I got a lot of clapping for my reaction times. i was pretty good on that front.
