All of us drag racing guys have been at the digs when the Fuel cars warm up. It’s awesome to run from trailer to trailer getting blasted in the face with nitro fumes. The sound of the big, hulking, blown Hemi cackling away and then being whacked a time or two to seat the clutch totally rules.
We’re going to the opposite end of the spectrum this week, with a Formula One car. Your guts aren’t going to shake, but your ears may shoot blood if the volume is turned up high enough.
This video shows a car up on the jacks being bounced off the rev limited to the delight of a crowd of onlookers. At full twist it sounds like the most pissed off air tool you’ve ever heard.
Take it or leave it, these small-displacement motors are chocked full of neat tech.
Crank up the volume if you dare, although the pitch of this thing may be high enough to send dogs running for cover.
You’ve been warned.
