Default Funny Car vs Trophy Truck drag race.

Skip to 10:25 for the interesting stuff.

I love that view of the launch. Its like Scotty engaged the Warp Drive.

Whats still amazing is that truck pulled a 10.5 pass. That seriously fast. It just looks dog slow relative to the Funny Car.

I think they were only racing to the 1000-foot mark.

Huge props to these guys for doing this. I didn't think there was any fucking way the lawyers would let this happen

That's sort of what it looks like when I race my 13 second car against 9 second cars.

I know the Funny car ran to the 1k mark. But thats a change they made a while ago to reduce speeds.

But yeah, I guess they could have put the truck at the 1k mark too. Which means the 10.5 is probably more like an 11.5. But still, thats a damn fast truck that isn't made to drag race at all.
