Despite the decades that are spent refining how the car puts its horsepower to the pavement, it’s not always easy or straightforward to make all of that thrust go in the intended direction.
And even drag strip legends like the Corvette Z06 have the hard time doing so, but the danger is compounded when sticky drag tires fail to gain any traction. Well, that’s exactly what happens in this race between the two supercharged Chevys.
Of course, the Blue Vette Murderer isn’t stock, we can assume that its grey racing companion isn’t either. According to the video below description, the Murderer is rocking the methanol injection kit with revised camshafts, headers, pulley, and intake, enough to shock any competitors wrongfully thinking it’s stock. Unluckily for this contender, the Murderer almost actually became the murderer when it lost control soon after launch.
Well, the rear end gives out, sending the blue Vette on a collision course with its sibling. Quick reactions and the stroke of luck are the only things that save this situation from getting worse.
It’s still unclear what led the blue Vette to lose control the way it did, but after the commotion happens, we can see the Corvette rolling down the strip with a white substance leaking onto its right tire. Better to fix a leak than own a write-off.
