You won't believe me how many times I hear someone calling me a nutter when people find out I drive one of them. It's good fun though! bowtie

I can imagine. However, they look stunning and I imagine the rush from driving one is amazing. I think it was the Easter Thunderball when they had about 6 down at the Pod for exhibition runs. I don't think any of them did a full pass from what I can remember.

I imagine that setting the steering must be a nightmare. Almost all the ones I saw lurched to one side on launch. Is that why your altered is brown? hehe

altereds aren't meant to go straight, thats the nature of the beast - its a real drivers car not something that is 99.9% sure to go straight and true every pass

the numbers from them might not compare to fuel dragsters etc but they're a hell of a lot more fun to watch, a fuel car looks stunning on a full tilt mid to high 4 second pass but otherwise its nothing, smoke, shake shutoff and the majority of the time thats the case - a fuel altered running an 8 on and off the throttle all over the track is way more exciting, and you haven't lived until you've experianced dry hops from a fuel altered

In terms of racing and spectating - Not as such, a bit of crewing here and there, next year should hopefully be doing some driving though.
