Default 1000hp firing up (video)!!!!!!!!!

ok its not exactly 1000hp and its not a boat but its damn close to 1000hp (lets say 900, but its is liek 3.5 litres and naturally aspirated) and still cool as all hell.

Engines rules

its an F1 car so the stands only need to be stong enough to support 1000lbs or so. As for glowing headers. Once again its an F1 car so they are made of "un-obtainium" aka metals specifically amde to work under thsoe conditions

i really love 18-19k rpm's..... and that motor was just getting warmed up, i went to indy last year and that is how they look when they pull into the pits, one of the pit crew said that when airflow drops below 150 KPH the headers start to glow red like that, really only a problem if they spill the fuel....

It never ceases to amaze me to see people so idiotic as to not wear ear protection or cover their ears so they "look" tough
