    Nerves of steel! Would you ride this??
    ➤ Awesome Motorsport Socks by Heel Tread -

    Top Fuel Drag Bikes have up to 1500 horsepower and can reach up to 265mph in less than 5.5 seconds.
    Over the years they have taken many different shapes and designs, but nothing comes close to the ingenuity of the Jade Warrior, sometimes called the 'Drag Sled', and it's crazy design.
    It dominated when it was racing, but has never been done again.
    How did it work? Why was it so dominant? And why has nobody else copied it?

    ➤ Subscribe for more incredible motorsport:
    The Jade Warrior took part in the 'Top Fuel' category, competing with bikes that looked like this.
    They were able to hit 155mph by the end of the strip and often used two engines, with one in front of the other!
    They produced between 400 and 500 horsepower and were fitted to specially modified, and much longer, bike chassis'.
    Now, drag bikes look like this with Larry McBride setting the record of 5.83 seconds over an eighth-mile and hitting 232mph before deploying the parachutes!

      Innovation at it’s best! **Apologies for the audio quality in this video, there was a technical issue with the mic! Will be fixed for the next video**

      5. 1BulldogBob

        I just have to ask, are you any relation to Nigel?

    2. ET

      Love your content but your audio could use some improvement, it sounds so hollow it hurts my ears 😵

    3. Carsten Prilow

      You should do something about the bad sound......

    4. ninjaswordtothehead

      One day, I will build my dream JATO powered drag-bicycle. The one I have now is lame.

    5. josh diable

      Jay Upton is running something similar in Perth Western Australia

      The echo in your garage is unbearable! Stopped watching less than two minutes

    15. LastName LastName

      WCGW? Does the neck make a good crumple zone.

    16. TraderParker 13

      Is it possible I could still win a pair of socks? Thank you and best regards.

    17. Noctis ym

      "why has nobody copied it" well before even watching the video i'd say because if even "anything" goes wrong, you're dead.

    18. Chris Died

      This video is 8 minutes too long

      winner of how to make a three minute video take nearly nine minutes of your life to watch.

    24. Lloyd Burke

      Get a better mic it ain't 1995

    25. Allan Carson

      Jay Upton in Perth Australia races something similar based on a Triumph 1200 .

      1. Driver61

        Oh wow! Does he have a website or are there some images?

    26. Philip Fitzsimons

      Head on nuts

    27. Mark Gillibrand

      White bike at 2:56 is Jay Upton hes still racing that bike here in Perth Western Australia.

    28. Hendy Nupriyanto

      Is motorcycle good

    29. David Osborn

      That is amazing

    30. John Thompson

      You need a mic

    31. Pickchore

      Reminds me of the Nike ONE 2022 from Gran Turismo. The driver configuration is similar. Only 1 year left until that weirdo comes along.

    32. Lysergic Brainwave Thrawthingal Byeblathingal

      video starts at 3:06

    33. BNOVA

      They should do a modern version of that bike. Modern tech would make the chassis stiffer and other innovations to make it more stable but still light.

    34. Socks VR

      lol, i could do with some socks

    35. Les Flynn

      He should have wona massive trophy just for having the bravery to try this outrageous racing tactic. I'm not afraid of much, but there's no way I'd do that.

    36. B McK

      If you hate your wife, this sport is for you.

    37. soldotnaman

      How about less talk and more dragster? Hmmm?

    38. brettwrb

      Did I miss out on the socks?

    39. WILL HOT

      Think you have to consider your environment as it’s have very bad acrostics and sound very very bad

    40. Simon Loughton


    41. Donnie Murchison

      Great 👍 video.

    42. edgar collado

      talk about a head on collision, i dont think i have the balls to ride this , lol

    43. Guy Etchells

      You say he's the first Englishman to get below the 9 second quarter mile, is this record for a drag bike or just speed record?

    44. humzah alkindi

      Love video

    45. LiberatorG

      THE ECHO IS SOOO BAD. fill your room

    46. Floyd Rome

      Some nice bikes you showed of racing

    47. Dan enarc

      Shame about the paint job though.

    48. JKChris


    49. TR Roland

      I like those socks 🧦!

    50. matthew bick

      We need more great minds like that

    51. DeltaDS

      Those socks look pretty cool

    52. J H

      You need sound dapners.

    53. Frank Harris

      450kilos= 990pounds not 100 pounds of downforce.

    54. Frank Harris

      Oddball designs like that rarely are successful. Usually they have a massive fault that counteracts the benefit of the idea. Incremental improvements of proven designs is more successful than wild departures.

    55. Larry Barnes

      The Jade Warrior was a work of art.

    56. poetic disaster

      Thats insane.. "like driving a bullet".... dang

    57. HOHO MOMO

      wow!!! so many socks!!! wow..... NOT!!!!!!!!


      Thats keen as lol

    59. Gregory Barney Mcwhorter

      Absolutely amazing

    60. Albert Dennis

      Most dangerous bike on the planet

    61. Chris Morrow

      A modern version would worst case split you in two

      Motor: " Im going to fold this race car like a half sandwhich! :) "

    63. TomCollierBlog Nation

      Dude! You said Larry McBride’s record was in the 1/8th. It was in the quarter mile which is double that😒 I’m American but have been watching euro drag racing for years, you guys DONT do 1/8th mile.... please keep it that way 😬

    64. Jason M

      The suislide!

    65. Serenity

      You need a microphone. You have 445k subs lol.

    66. Fix News

      I had a 1984 XR4ti with a turbocharged 2.0 Ford Cosworth

    67. 김영미

      Imagine breaking while being on that.

    70. marv strickler

      Be a nice video. without the face and talkies.

    71. Psychlops 924

      I see that Mustard footage you used... glad to see you have a great taste in channels! Seriously, that’s my favorite aviation channel on IThomes. More people need to check him out. Loving this content too! What an insane bike.

    72. Mark Schlehr

      It's a great design. Just needed an engineered frame. It copies the top fuel layouts. Rear engine long frame superior aerodynamics. It will rule given the chance.

    73. Donald Burkhard

      Use exoskeleton on Bike got strength.

    74. Mike Sokolow

      I have a Vmax, and an R1, they will kill me just fine on the road.

    75. jpsholland

      A few curtains in your room will create a lot better sound. Now it sound like you do the voice over from you toilet seat.

    76. Ludwig Van Astramax

      I'm enjoying the broadening of the topics on the channel under Covid lockdown. Looking forward to getting back to racing stuff though.

    77. ParRagon -

      Wouldnt this laydown configuration help with gforces on the Body?🤔

    78. kei555moto

      When he said he could feel the chassis flexing on the run how could he not realise that it was his balls of granite causing it and no amount of engineering would be able to overcome that.

    79. BAOQIANG Li

      The gaudy alley phytogeographically ask because velvet microscopically man aboard a sad output. obedient, sore gong

    80. JakobusVdL

      Great video thanks. That's a really innovative bike that I knew nothing about. McPhail must have been a great engineer as well as a brave adrenaline junkie. Are ground effects still allowed in drag racing? I guess they may be banned, as fan or exhaust powered ground effects could deliver massive start line traction

    81. NorthernZeus

      Speed and power- J. Clarkson

    82. FatalDragon69

      Laid Down Head First on a Drag Bike.....That's like an Extreme version of the Skeleton Bob, I wonder if they were inspired by that sport a little !! You've got to be a massive adrenalin junkie to ride that bike but I still think it's damn clever !! Thanks for the video, I'd never heard of or seen anything about this bike !!

    83. john reilly

      Very innovative. "extremely dangerous........"

    84. Bronut Donut

      Fun face da front wheel is nothing when a drager launches

    86. John Coops

      Dreadful presenter! So totally fake and ridiculously over-enthusiastic. Just horrid.

    87. Unity__

      Speed. I am speed.

    93. Viggo Ketelaar

      The mic was weird

    94. Max Higgs

      His face is almost as close to the ground as yours is to the camera. Almost.

    95. WT Z

      DUDE !! can you get any closer to the camera ?????

    96. HighAway

      a possibility that it'll fly!

    97. Nicholas Crow

      Hate to laugh at the misfortune and pain of others, but I lost it at 4:08!
