    ok, fine, ill bite.


    Drag Racing does take a lot of skill, to set up the car correctly, lauch it as best as you can, to hit the reaction time as close as possible, even to dial in what time you think you are going to run in bracket racing, it all takes skill.







    now having said that, i would much rather take a nice M3 out on a twistie road course.

    drag racing as a sport is dumb

    but being able to accelerate like that in a well balanced car = :cool:

    99% of all races are drag races.

    everyone on OT that races a DD or even a WW drag races.

    and half those fuckers will say drag racing is lame

    It may be boring at times, but i guess it still impresses me... :dunno:

    Fastest thing i've seen was a couple cars doing 4s in the 1/8, that I assure you isn't boring
