....stumbled across this while browsing cosworth vids. might be a repost. sry if it is.
check the other link for pics of the car and a shot of the engine. :twisted:

Is that 8.8 in the 1/8 or what? Didn't look like a 1/4 mile pass.

if you listen right after the camera zooms in on the clock, it's definitely a 1/4 mile pass. the track color changes right at the clock but you can still hear the cars running well pass that.

It certainly seemed like he had plenty of time to shut it down when it started torque-steering heavily to starboard. Guess he thought he could save it.
