It is interesting because most of us don't have the power to cause that chain of events.

Once I'm out of first gear my squirrelyness is over, his continues into 4th, this video clearly illustrates how difficult that car is to keep under control.

I don't think anyone wants to see Eddie crash but seeing him have this type of off then come back for more falls under entertainment for me.

Good luck in Texas guys.

Me posting that video was not to see Eddie wreck. I was curious to know what happened and that particular video i posted was looking for airplanes or birds?? From what i've seen on the various runs Eddie makes...it takes BALLZ of STEEL to pilot that car and running off into the grass is going to happen sooner or later when your running flat out ...Amazing skills!

Wow, late to the game and just saw that video. Really brings home how dangerous this power can be. Glad the wheels stayed on the ground when he hit the sandy area.

Juan you have e-mail.

'cool and interesting' is an understatement, lol
Definitely apples and oranges. The other situations listed are much more taxing on a car than <20 seconds of straight line acceleration. That being said, I'm definitely a Bello fan all the way back to his IDRC days with his first 964!

I believe he's using an older Haltech unit.

Well if you would like to borrow one of my HANS for the event let me know immediately here, and what address you would like me to ship it to(PM it to me, don't post it here)



I will be posting my serial number and will ship it out requiring it to be signed for upon delivery.

I have been wanting to come down for this event and this might be the perfect excuse. I only have Friday though. Juan will Eddie be there on Friday?
