    Can't wait. I'm too cheap to get one, but I would like to hear what reviewers have to say.

    Reading more into it, the actual reason it's "banned from the drag strip" is not nearly as cool as I thought. When a car breaks a certain speed in the quarter it needs a roll cage and some other equipment to make it official. The demon doesn't come with some of those features, so in its stock form will not fly.

    In it's stock form the Demon certainly can fly :)

    The limitations are due to NHRA rules requiring compliance for safety and control while making runs on NHRA sanctioned drag strips. You can drag race anywhere you like in stock kit, including NHRA sites as long as you meet their rules and requirements.

    The Roll-cage and certification, but even more exciting, you need a Drag Chute strapped on the back to slow you down for runs over 150mph.

    I'd say that's pretty cool, the Demon is so fast the NHRA requires a Drag Chute!! :)

    Only really thought about drag chutes on funny cars, sadly most of my experience with drag racing is amateur.

    What a ridiculous car!

    I cannot afford one, and if I did I would most likely get another car.
    But I love it!
