I'm well aware of the skill and nuance required to successfully hurl a projectile as fast as possible. Less so on an auto, but still.

In either case, the steering wheel remains largely unused at a drag strip. At a track, you get to handle traction management in four different directions, not just one.

Good numbers, though.
I've got a hairpin turn at the end of the 1320... So I can get off. LOL
