    I was referring to the dung beetle as the short bus. The car is quick and other cars get baited and hooked like candy to a baby.
    People just don't get it. Bravado and proudness get In the way of common sense when it comes to knowing when it is the right time to race.
    Know what you have. Know what you can beat
    Know when it is time to say see ya later
    Not knowing hurts and losing hurts even more with so many eyes on your loss or disappointment. They share in your win and hammer when you lose knowing ou should have never been doing it to begin with.
    Damned if you do and damned
    if you don't

    The Dung Beetle is a tiny light weight car that is 90% engine. I'd know not to race it just by looking at the tires and engine hanging out of the back. No shame in losing to a purpose built toy designed to crush stock cars.

    And what would happen to the DB at higher speeds? Could it hit 175 MPH with confidence?

    There's so much more to a Hellcat than just hopping off the line. The package is what it's all about. Naturally a modded Hellcat could win, but what would that really mean? Any car can be modded and no one wants a Dung Beetle over a Hellcat!

    Many NHRA stock cars can beat the dung Beatle and they are "stock" any body shell can be modified to beat something else. It's all relative and means nothing.
