It was the tires more than anything. The Caddy got a great launch whereas the Vette danced a little bit. Nice race though.

Hmmmmm. His trap speed wasn't that high considering the work he had done. I was expecting a slaughtering by the wagon.

Even if you get a bad launch, there's just something about being smoked by a wagon that makes you feel like you got kicked between the legs...it's just not natural.

All he did to the power of the Caddy was pulleys. The boost pressure (and Horse power) on the Vette is much higher, and it's lighter. The only reason that the Caddy won at all were the tires.

Personally, I think that every V wagon that races should be required to have a baby seat in the back to emphasize the kick between the legs experience.
