Maybe but you have to admit, going over a ton on one of those must feel bloody lethal.  lol:

Take a barbie toy car and slap an engine on it...



While some will say that 70+ mph isn't all that fast, given the size of the thing and how close your arse would be to the ground would you really want to be going any faster?

On the other hand could this be the new Moanimobile?  rubschin:

I've never really 'got' drag racing... I went to Santa Pod once and while the machinery was amazing, overall it was a bit, 'meh' IMHO...  noooo:

Shove a jet into a Peel Trident?  eeek:

That said, it does look as if it would be fun to throw around a track...  cloud9:
