I hate to use such profanity, but, adultmalecowsnot! It would be great for such a claim to be (factual?). I can't believe a street legal road machine, even a Corvette, would have the acceleration of a 1200 pound 500 minimum horsepower INDY car! Unless perhaps THE 3000+ POUND monster had wheele bars at the time at which it was tested. Even still thats not street legal. Even more still unless they are used just for fun or ya have something along the lines of a 707ci. wet and fogger nitro injected big blown beast I believe they should be restricted on the fact that they take much fine-ness and skill out of the very important launch thus making the whole-shot a far more simpler goal to attain. Please dont get me wrong though! Wheele bars will often make for a better race, but, I'm a very firm beliver in skill. And let me tell you why... skill is the very thing that makes anything, wether it be racing or painting, philosofy or fighting; ANYTHING an art. With racing inpreticular skill creates (compitition?), compi... compa...battle begets love or hate even and that (in racing) brings evolution and evolution is what the automotive world is all about. So... I ask you where would the AUTOMOTIVE culture be without skill? Thusly,wheele bars I believe take far to much away.
