Moorsville Dragstrip

This is super funny. There was a Foxbody mustang with a 250 shot and vortex supercharger on the 5.0 versus a 99-04 Cobra Twin Turbo'd. The Foxbody on launch got about 4 ft of front wheel clearance from the ground, slammed down, water leaked the whole time, rear M/T's got a hold of it, slammed him sideways (like a drift), then punched into the wall sideways at about 90mph.

The funniest part was after he hit, he got out, looked at his whole side panel and scratched his said saying "damnit" at a quiet tone. I about bursted out laughing so hard cause a lot more words woulda came out of my mouth if I were him.

The Twin Turbo Cobra ran the 1/8th ET of [email protected] mph.

It's always funnier when it's at someone else's expense. Maybe the impact rocked his head so much that it numbed his senses to the point of passive indifference? I don't know, not a doctor.
