Hyper Bug 1641cc turbo/nitrous VW Beetle Drag Car
Shot this video this weekend at Farmington, NC. The Hyper Bug has been around for A LONG time, but this was the first time I have seen it with this engine - 1641cc, no frills turbo with Nitrous. I didn't expect much...boy I was wrong. The car actually went much quicker than this run, but I missed the first pass because I just didn't realize what I was about to witness! ENJOY!
