What We Think
There are many YouTubers these days who conduct such competitions with their cars and motorcycles. Drag racing, while popular on YouTube, can be harmful to vehicles. Most cars are not designed for prolonged high-speed, straight-line racing, and drag racing can damage the engine, transmission, and other components. It is not recommended to drag race your personal car. Most drivers avoid pushing their cars to such extreme limits, prioritizing safety. We urge our readers to never imitate the YouTubers.
