Track Etiquette
A few things not to do at the track. If anyone takes their equipment seriously, they have a responsibility to not let others with the same equipment disrespect that equipment, or the sport. If anyone thinks this is Honda-bashing, I built one that got 44mpg after I shaved 3.5 seconds off of its 1/4 mile time. I have nothing against Hondas, I just can't find examples like these being exhibited by other manufacturers. This is about etiquette and behavior. For example... If Fiat owners came out in numbers and consistently did this sort of stuff, nobody with drag racing experience would take any Fiat owner seriously.

Subaru- Drag racing - what happens when you launch in 2nd
This is what happens when you launch in 2nd gear! Poor clutch. Was under a bit of pressure to maintain a 100% record as the BMW looked serious with a long burnout on drag wheels on the rear, and very particular staging. Still managed to win though with a 13.6s@112mph vs 14.10@102mph. Over the line 0.25s 1st. I must have put him off with the stink and smoke off my clutch :D
