I think you mean another guy who has enough money to have a 500hp car and drag race all weekend but can't afford the proper suspension parts to handle it.
Why is it so common among drag racers to put 90% into the motor and 10% into everything else?


Driving it 'til I wreck it.

Oh wait, I sold it, it was stolen and someone else wrecked it.

Heh, I used to drag race a little. Fun sport - blow the clutch, buy a stronger clutch; Grenade the trans, get a a stronger trans; Break the drive shaft, get a bigger one; Twist an axle or three, get tougher ones; Blow the posi, get a spool; Blow the clutch . . .

Enough hp and enough tire and you WILL break the weakest link. I'm no fan of JRG, but is that really what the part was designed for?
