That video was a huge letdown

Considering what both of those cars are worth I was expecting something better.

Watching drag racing is boring enough and the fact that it was filmed with one camera (possibly purchased in the early 90's) placed about 1km behind the start line made me just want to stop it. They could've at least had another camera near the finish line. And seriously what the hell kind of music was that?!?!

Based on the promo video they had I'm guessing there is going to be a more legit version of the race video coming soon.

It's still a joke. Honestly, we're supposed to believe a half million dollar bet was placed between cars almost a full second appart? Failed attempt is fail

and if they were betting that much they could have invested a little more in the music and video quality.

Not sure what year the Ferrari was but lets assume at least 40+ years of technology in its favour....

That Cobra has had some serious work done to it to be in the 10's...... most run mid to high 11's..... ask me how I know-

Kind of a BS race IMO, 8/10ths is a big difference. The cobra could have had a poor launch and still beat him. When racing for that kind of coin the cars should be within 2/10ths like on Pinks All Out and do best 3 out of 5 races.
