Default Racing pictures!

Hey guys,
I have searched around a little bit but the pictures seem scattered or buried in other threads I thought I would start a thread for everyone to post up pictures of their car in action at the race track!

So post them up!

I'll start this one off...

I took this one of BIGTACO's MTX4 on the front straight, it's blurry, but I think it adds to the cool factor.

That picture is blurry like that because it was taken right after my afterburner kicked in

Someday also the USA needs to work on environmental friendly solutions to keep life on this planet worth living for....
This "second engine" is a so called INS-box, which reduces the inlet noise coming from these .21 engines......

*Off-topic mode on*
I even heard that if everybody in the USA would drive European based 1/1 cars, they wouldn't need oil from the middle east, but could do with there own oil winning....
But no, still an American "muscle" car needs to be driven which is not exactly economically with fuel.....
Did you know that a gallon of gasoline in Europe will cost you (3.8 (liter) x 1.30 (Euro) x 1.31 (Euro to Dollar) = 6.47 Dollar?.......
That's why we drive cars which could do with between 5-10 liters/100km

awwww, man...

you're opening a HUGE can of worms with this little statement.

we might need to start a whole new thread to talk about the 1:1 scale cars.

I wont go on a rant right now, but I will ask one, simple question...

Have you ever driven a 'muscle car?'

I know, but keep in mind I'm just a small European guy sometimes wondering why the USA is not at all in line with Europe on this subject......

Don't....
Just forget about it after this.....

Yep, a VW 3 liter VR6 (6 cilinder, 300hp?)
Nice, but not if you need to refill your fueltank twice a week, for lets say 80 dollar.........

lol

no offense, but in the USA, a 6 cylinder does not typically fall into the 'muscle car' category.

Once you've driven a V8 with 450+ HP to the rear wheel, you might have a slightly different opinion on 'muscle cars' and 'hot rods.'

I agree that imports, especially a Skyline, have quite an edge on american gas guzzlers on a road course... but the feeling of a 1970 mustang rumbling and growling before you slam the gas pedal to the floor and let its ponies run free... is as close to nirvana as one can get.
