What We Think
In recent times, YouTubers have adopted a common practice of utilizing drag races to compare and assess the performance of two cars. However, it’s worth noting that employing drag races for such evaluations may not be the most prudent approach. The reason is that drag races can potentially inflict long-term harm on vehicles, as the majority of cars are not designed for sustained high-speed straight-line runs. For this reason, we strongly recommend refraining from attempting drag races with your own vehicle. In reality, most individuals do not drive their cars in such an extreme manner due to safety considerations.
