Forget about super-slo-mo films of hummingbird wings or water droplets- watching a vintage dragster spin its tires at launch is the real reason the 1,000FPS camera is such a great thing! The best part of this film- well, aside from the general batshit insanity of slingshot dragsters, of course- is that you can see individual exhaust pulses blowing the smoke off the top of the tire as it spins. This is an excerpt from a film about the 1969 NHRA Drags, courtesy of this YouTube user.
