Antron Brown NHRA Top Fuel crash at Pomona Winter Nationals

Wow!

This happened on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013. He survived the crash with no injuries, dirty underwear and obviously, he was quite shaken up.

Turn your speakers up and listen for the explosion. They did a great job capturing the audio on this. Check out the damage to the wall in the second video.

LOL

I do that to piss off the people who check the forum from their smart phones.

Ok, resized to 853 x 480 from 1280 x 720. I won't go smaller than that. Get yourself a real monitor or quit checking the forum from your PDA/Smart phone.

My monitor is "only" 24" or 1920 x 1200 resolution.

As much ceramic as you're putting into that car it would've been cheaper to buy a kiln and make your own.

Anyway, I didn't know you were going to go with ceramic wheel bearings too ...

What else is going to be or already is ceramic? What does the full list look like?

Thats a crazy crash, really says alot about safety when people survive wrecks at 300mph.

As far as the computer monitor thing goes, 1280x720 is 1997 CRT resolution. 1080p monitors are hitting the $100 price point now. My LG 27" 1080p monitor only cost me $199. What are you guys running? 800x600 on Windows 95? Are your computers older than your MN12s? Inquiring minds want to know. Even cell phone screens now are hitting 1280x720...

a very good friend worked for Darrell when Mike Dunn drove for him. I got to spend a lot of time in the shop in Davie and got to go to a few races.

FYI:

Ceramic IMRC bearings did not survive my great nephew popping them open and snapping them closed a few hundred times, "Playing with them".
(He lives, and is uninjured. )

Great thing to find out before installation.

I am rethinking my application...

YMMV, but I felt obligated to share.

My computer setup for most stuff is an Eyefinity 3x 1920x1200 24" monitors side by side setup.

I've been browsing on my TV pc lately; it's 1080p plasma.

Crysis2 in 3dHD on my plasma requires seatbelts on my chair, it's so real.

I ran that last weekend on my new x3970 6-core 'puter with 2x 7970's in crossfire.

It was really nice, until I had to get up and walk...

Need for speed can be too visceral on a big monitor; your buddies will laugh at you for flinching hard when you hit a truck at 200+, lol.

Complete thread hijack, but I played Crysis 3 in full 3D saturday night on my 80" plasma. with the recliner ~5ft from the tv, lol.

Not for the faint-of-heart, believe me!
