a video I carved out of the "vehicular lunatics" DVD in association with
IMV films... all visuals are due to the stated
HTR: How to launch an Automatic car.
This video is a video filmed to describe the best way to get some off the
line performance out of you old beat up car that you just want to scare the
crap out of the person next to you at the stop light. This is not
something that should be done every day if you want the car to last this is
just a beater car that I got for the summer and me friend was nice enough
to let me use his. I take no responsibility if you are hurt or do any
damage to your car trying to replicate the acts done in this video.

from losers. Age, size and gender are immaterial: the race car puts
everyone on an equal footing. The winning difference is your ability to
control yourself in a challenging environment.
If you have experience on the quarter mile, you'll be blown away by the
amount of knowledge you'll gain through this program. You'll increase your
skills and gain confidence at handling these lightning quick machines.
You'll learn how your mind and body work and how to train yourself to
think, act and perform like a champion.
This course keeps a steady pace with plenty of action on and off the track.

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
