I can't even imagine the amount of setup it takes to get the boat to launch like that and essentially wheeling the first 60 feet on its drive. Unreal.

You mean like this? This is the result of a not so subtle launch. You can check out the whole photo series in the photo gallery at dragboats.com website. This is the same driver, different boat, and I believe this was before he stepped up to TFH and was still running TAH (TFH=nitro, TAH=alchohol).

Spirit of Texas launched and went over backwards down in Augusta a few weeks ago. if you have never seen and heard on of these in person you owe it to yourself to go.
