I haven't seen those ones before but I have seen a similar video with a Porsche Twin Turbo with glowing hot manifolds/turbos it's fucking crazy! When I find the link I will post it!

jesus, im surprised the motor can even rev back down safely without stalling, my god, it revs like in .5 secs, then falls just as fast.. im guessing just about zero drive trainloss there...

the first one was definitly a repost but the second one...oh my:heyhey why would the manifolds glow red like that when its idling? i can understand if its on a dyno under load or high reving for a long period of time but i mean at idle?

well most of the time a formula 1 car is moving. very fast at that. if you noticed the radiators are in front of the headers. atleast thats what i think
