What We Think
We understand that YouTubers often use drag races to compare vehicle capabilities. However, this can have long-term impacts on the cars, as they are not typically driven under hard acceleration in a straight line. It is not advisable to do drag races on personal cars for safety and mechanical reasons. We advise our readers to avoid such stunts and remember that drag races don’t represent real-world driving scenarios.
