I'm getting pumped for the big local 1/8 mi drag race set for a couple of weekends from now.
So I pick up a copy of Hot Rod Magazine. You know the one. Expecting to read all about good ol 'Merican Muscle. To my surprise it has an insert edition of Sport Compact Racing Action......read RICER, with a yellow Honda on the cover.
It has all kinds of tips on drag racing basics for street cars. Not too bad.
At least it showed a GP crossing the finish line neck in neck with a WRX at the Irwindale dragstrip.
Then I turn to the last page where they show the timeslip. It didn't say what kind of car it was but it hinted at nitrous ......posted a 7.089 sec at 96 mph for the 1/8 and a 60 ft of 1.547 sec.
It was racing next to someone who posted a slow 11.2 sec at 68 mph.
That really takes the wind out of ones sails.
