NITRONIC RESEARCH UNVEILS INTERNET FIRST: IN-CAR AUDIO FROM A TOP FUEL DRAGSTER! by Cole Coonce, NR Mojo Wire

2/23/00, Los Angeles, CA--As a tease for an upcoming CD release, "The Big Sounds of the Drags 2001," Nitronic Research has unveiled an internet first: In-car audio from the cockpit of a grunting, cackling, fire-breathing Top Fuel Dragster.

If you sport a Real Player and a 56k modem, you can dial in this verite snapshot of what it is like to blast down the 1/4 mile in a modern fueler.

Simply point your browser to: http://www.nitronic.com/topfueldiary/tossedbelt.html and ride along with "Techno Tim" Gibson as he guides the Bill Miller Engineering fueler down Parker Avenue at the recent 2000 Winternationals, out California way.

This unique recording is a sort of multi-media sidebar to the ongoing "Top Fuel Diary" serial that Gibson submits to NR, the latest installment of which has just been uploaded to http://www.nitronic.com/topfueldiary/....(Uhhh, you *HAVE* been following "Top Fuel Diary," haven't you? I mean, where else on the planet are you going to find a professional nitromaniac explaining the nuances of running a Top Fuel Car? Eh?)

"The Big Sounds of the Drags 2001," features both the cars and the stars of that slice of teutonic overkill we like to call drag racing: thundering, over-the-top recordings of everything from Top Fuelers to Funny Cars to Weiner Roasters to Wheelstanders; as well as sound bites and interviews from "Big Daddy," Shirley, "Nitro Neil" Bisciglia, Jon "Thunderlungs" Lundberg, Dean Skuza, Ron "Crazy Legs" Capps and more, all of which have been underscored by a "Go! Cat Wild!" cross section of premium SoCal surf bands.

Will the worker bees at NR make their deadline for the record release? You'll be the first to know...
