A ride inside a 6 second 200mph Drag car.
Onboard footage with Darren White in his Dodge Dart at the Kwinana
Motorplex in Western Australia.
Reaction time is abit off: 0.422 and he got off the throttle 1/2 second
early. This is a new engine combo so this was pretty much testing :)

One of my favorite automotive quotes of all time comes from Colin Chapman,
the guy who founded Lotus, who said, "To add speed, add lightness."
Enter this killer 1969 Dodge Dart Swinger. Starting with a lightweight
compact, the "add lightness" part was already handled. Then you stuff a
giant 440 cubic inch V8 making 500+ horsepower under the hood,
and give it all the equipment it will need to launch straight and safe down
the drag strip. The result is an incredibly fast car that's also incredibly
reliable, without a lot of over-stressed components that will leave you
worrying about breakage every time you crack the throttle. With an
extensive list of top-shelf parts and high quality craftsmanship, this is a
no-compromises car that is as beautiful as it is fast.
