The Popularity of the NHRAWritten by Richard A. Brink
It is Christmas holiday weekend, family is sitting around livingroom discussing how much of a very fine meal we've eaten, when conversation shifts: "You on for drag races this summer?" I asked my brother. "Oh yeah," he answers back. As we reminisce about past years NHRA Nationals and discuss plans and dates for this years race, we wonder why NHRA does not have a bigger following. If you like fast cars, and you have not been to a NHRA Nationals event, you have no idea what your missing. That, we decided, is exactly problem. You have got to see it live to understand why it has following it does. Television is at fault, after-all this sport has many times horsepower of NASCAR, pitts are open to anyone with a ticket, and drivers come out of haulers just to sign autographs on a regular basis. They even give you a free, glossy team photo to get autograph signed on. The problem is none of that comes across on TV. When you watch NASCAR they televise pre-race activities, on-track activities, and post-race activities. They even have a segment called CRANK IT UP, in which anouncers dont say a word for a few laps so you can litterally blow your speakers apart with your surround sound. This helps give you feeling you are at track. You could be watching your first NASCAR event and by end of race come away with feeling you understand it, and more importatly you will feel like you know drivers. I dont want to take anything away from NASCAR; it is a great motorsport and they have done a fine job of marketing to get to this point. But (and it is a big but) there is no feeling in world like two top fuel dragsters coming off line simultaneously; it will shake your soul. Trying to explain this feeling to someone who has never experienced it is futile. Nor can you explain smells of track, smoking tires, rubber dust in air, or way your eyes burn from half-burnt alcohol sprayed from firey pipes. The sound...absolutely deafening.

For some people, a car is a means of transport and nothing more. As long as their vehicle gets them from point A to point B and back again, has nice comfortable seats, a good sound system and a coffee mug holder, it serves all of its purposes well. And of course there are other drivers for which a car is much, much more -- It can be an extension of their personality or an object of their fixation. In this huge world of automotive accessories, there is no product that screams louder than underbody light kit for this type of individual. If you consider cruising in your car is among your favorite hobbies and you relish stares of pedestrians and fellow-motorists, then a under car light kit may be for you.
These lights, which mount to body around perimeter of vehicle's undercarriage, come in kits that contain elements you'll need for installation. The "how to install under car lights" instructions that you'll be directed to shortly, are fairly straight forward, but since it requires drilling into body of vehicle and substantial electrical work (depending on kit you buy), it's best left to more experienced do-it-yourselfers. If this project seems a little too hard for you, rest assured that there is a growing number of custom shops that perform this type of installation. If you do decide to take on installation yourself, which anyone can do with correct instructions, be sure to purchase a kit that is compatible with your vehicle, and read and follow instructions that come with kit carefully.
Ever wondered how long car lighting kits have been around? Well Hot Rods were first cars to have undercar lighting installed on them, (although, lights were nothing like they are today) back before import and export was a big industry world wide. And today, thanks to World Wide Web and fact that import and export is now more commonly practiced throughout world, they have become more popular then ever before.
