Re: Schumacher loses!

Wow, really neat article! I'm baffled at the fact that it pulled on the jet for the first 400 meters. I wonder how many G's those cars pull in first gear

Anyone think the results would be much different if it was dry?

Re: Schumacher loses!

I reckon dry conditions would favour the car for a little longer, but once that plane starts moving it would be game over- as you'd expect.

I heard that those jets really fly

Jets are very slow off the mark, considering they rely on thrust as apposed to direct drive from the wheels, even a Nissan skyline GTR or WRX would take most jet fighters over about 400m. It's beyond that when the jet will really take off...

Re: Schumacher loses!

Dale Earnhardt Jr could have beat that jet. They should have put a real driver in the car

Re: Schumacher loses!

I saw 3 F1 races at Spa when I was in Belgium. Expensive but awesome.
