When watching drag racing, the last thing that’s on your mind is what the race would look like in slow motion. Luckily, there are people out there that are thinking about this, and even capture it on video for people like us to enjoy. On YouTube there are dozens of slow motion videos of rear wheel drive cars launching, which is pretty cool, but I find all wheel drive to be more interesting.
You can actually see the transfer case putting in work. First, the front wheels start to slip, then the power is transferred to the rear, which often slips, and then back to the front it goes again. It is an amazing seesaw of power within a blink of an eye. Focus on the spinning of the front and rear wheels vs. the distance the car travels for total amazement. Oh, and yes……… this is why stuff breaks.
