Yeah, mostly hate.BadDogRacing said:Let's just say ETR has a Love/Hate relationship with Jet Cars.
correction!!! that car was not on fire. afterburner was stuck on, the guy that got thrown, de smith jr, is the track owners son! He is fine now, lots of skin grafts and surgeries from that 1. I have seen the video. He was out of the way of the flame but got caught by the wind.Lanky said:Ouch, I went to an event @ Sac when they had the jet cars and one caught on fire and scared the you know what out of one of the guys standing in the middle and he ran away and behind one of the jet cars and got tossed like a rag doll!
Ahhh, one of those "I'm waaaaaay too cool for that" kinda guys, huh? People who think that something they own makes them a better person crack me up.Tom Simon said:The guy's name is Ron Patrick. I contacted him just before he got his 15 minutes of fame... he wasn't the least bit interestd in bringing it out to BOR. Too bad, it could have been a fun halftime show.
That thing went 386 mph? Seriously? :hrmm:Brian Watts said:Here it is The "Vulcan Shuttle" - 1984 Sammy ran a 3.58 seconds/386mph quarter mile (backed up) his crew chief for all those 'historic' runs was VW Action's/VWDRC's very own Keith Jackson . . . AFIK that OFFICIAL record remains unbeaten and still gives the Pod the honour of being the quickest/fastest dragstrip in the world.
sort of... our conversation was kind wierd. He claimed he didn't need the money, and loathes the car magazines since he got a few rejections (no stickers, no AIM or Konig parts). His pepole were talking with Jay Leno's and Dave Letterman's people (he was on Letterman after he and I spoke). He claimed he'd been offered 1/2 mil for the car and turned it down, his price was $1M :wideeyed2:ErikTheRed said:Ahhh, one of those "I'm waaaaaay too cool for that" kinda guys, huh?
