Drag Boat Racing Shoots Up An Awesome Wall Of Water Behind It

Video: These boats racing against each other pack nearly 8000 horsepower and can hit speeds of 418km/h. Basically, they’re really, really fast.

Video: For a second, you think hey maybe the motorcycle has a chance in this Top Gear bit since it screams to a lead but then the land-based jet machine insanity known as an F1 race car steps it up and the other two are fighting not to get lapped by the closest thing we have to a teleportation device on Earth.

Cars Exploding In Drag Races Look Like They Are Made Out Of Jelly

Some people would call this Mazda MX-5 conversion blasphemy. Turning the perfect roadster into a tubbed dragster with massive Hoosier radials. Ripping the light, rev-happy four-cylinder out of the front and replacing it with a massive lithium-ion battery pack. Hooking up two forklift electric motors.
