    6 second dragsters vs 14 second acura vtacks yo. Must be hilarious to watch.

    I see what you're trying to do but you're point is still a stupid one.

    You're full of useful information, and then you turn around and act like an ass when someone disagrees with you.

    Simply put the dude makes a point that makes zero sense and tries to be super cool posting a picture of his drag racer. Yet in every drag strip I've even been to every category of cars and what they run are split up so at no point would a 6 second dragster follow my car through the water box.

    If I did this with a dragster like his and did the same thing then maybe he could try to be cool and teach me some drag racing etiquette. If that happened under some miracle I actually cared about the sport maybe he wouldn't be blowing smoke here.

    Sorry that I don't agree with everyone like certain people on here. His original comment falls under the "ask a stupid question get a stupid answer" only in this case it's say a stupid comment.

    Then come visit my drag strip. Bandimere Speedway.

    On Wednesday nights we have test and tune nights. People bring slingshots out along side 18 second civics.

    When someone is under 11 seconds they race alone, but that doesn't mean that they couldn't have an 18 second civic on radials pull right through the water in front of them. My hood was covered in rubber from a 7 second slingshot that went in front of me one night.

    Just for argument's sake...

    Buzzz... I don't know why a line of water wouldn't be burned off when you do your burnout in the burnout box. Funny cars burn well past the line... and one would think that the water would be burned off before you're actually trying to gain traction...

    Well unlike you and that dude Wannabe I actually came into the thread trying to help out a guy for his first time at the track. Zero of your posts have been helpful to the OP. Damn me for trying to be helpful unlike you who have given zero input to the posters question.

    Not only that they have never sprayed the box before I've driven up like they do everyone else. So chances of my tires dripping off water enough to make anyone crash into the wall is just funny to me.

    Please take the bickering to PM. None of this is helpful to the OP.
