I made a brand new Dodge Daytona do that on a test drive once.... It was kinda a tie between the brakes or the turbo.... I think the turbo glowed for a bit longer,,,,, :D

I was talking to a guy here that works with Indycar stuff. He came from England years ago and use to dyno F1 engines. He was telling about how the turbo use to glow and they could see the inside spinning.

Hi,
That is a 4 liter, 6 cylinder 24 valve petrol engine out of a Ford Falcon XR6 produced in Australia. The engine is called a Barra and in its strongest production form produces 310Kw (416 Hp) and 565Nm (417lb-ft) of torque.

It is not uncommon to see some street cars with more than 600Hp and race engines with more than 1000Hp.

probably inconel headers too, they like to glow! Good friend of mine used to run the Cosworth Dyno cell in Torrance, and he's got plenty of video where you can actually see through the headers! Can even see the "air-flow" inside the header tubes. Pretty freaking cool...

Those are the low revving less monied teams.. The V10s that were used by Williams, Mac, and the red cars prior to the cost and power cutting moves of the FIA and Bernie all IDLED at around 7k and revved to 19-20,000 the incredible sound that those cars made sent shivvers down my spine.. Pissed off is putting it mildly ...ten thousand banshees on meth/crack would be closer..
