Sure you've watched cars pull massive wheelies when they launch on a drag strip, but how many do you see get up in the wheelie bars at the 1/8th mile!! I think this car is making a bit of boost about 700 feet out!
Even Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson yelling POWER might say, oh, that's a bit much maybe.
Finding cool stuff like this is why I like Twitter. @SummitRacing posted this today, Top Fuel Funny Cars and Dragsters, Pro Stock Cars and Motorcycles launching, and the absolute violence of it. All captured in what's called X-Mo, or super slow mo of 1000 frames a second. Your standard TV picture is 29.97 (in North America) frames a second, film is 24 frames a second.
