Why does a drag race...

seem to hold so much power? What is it about blowing someone away at a stoplight which simply says, I win?

We see thread after thread about 0-60 times, which car has an advantage and why. In an elemental form, why do we get such a kick out of this?

I confess, it would make me smile to spank a 911S. Not on the track, but on the street outside my house. Also a C6, RS4, SL55, .........

Additionally, I have enjoyed the hell out of my S2000. As everyone knows, this is clearly not a car for the 1/4 mile track. Where it excells is the rush of the Vtec and the feel of speed. This is amazing and so addicting. While the M will be absurdly fast in comparison, my fear is the seemingly endless though constant power/torque delivery may not be as.....exciting? Is it possible the M will not feel as fast as the specs show?
