    I disagree with the verdict, They only used street tires, no slicks as in most vids. Also, most of the vids were shot at the track. I still think this needs to be looked at again...

    Just my 2 cents...

    happens alot w mythbusters. not only that, but the ta tested only had bout 300 hp. lot of track cars like your talkin about can push alot more hence spin alot faster. might be the difference between fire and no fire

    I'm looking for their web page. I am trying to make a case against their ruling. Suggest the need to get track cars like in the videos they were showing. who knows maybe they will retry. Great props for showing a LT1 and it's power....

    it would be a great way to show what the lt1's got. they've had a rematch episode before where they pit old myths against different variables. i think you could, go on discovery.com they might have their web page there. i think with a stock car and street tires. yes, the myth is busted. but alot of these drag cars can spin so much faster that maybe it'd have a different outcome

    Wow, seems gearheads have united to tell the science geeks (<<< , I like science geeks, they make my toys...) that they are wrong and need to retest. As of today there were 5 pages....
