Seen the Honda tap the brakes in the slo-mo. Is that typical? I always thought just backing off the throttle a bit would get you back down.

...or was that quick tap probably a slip of the foot?

7's are impressive in the Quarter. Only seen an RX-7 pull that. ONCE.
But I've seen lots of imports decked out like that S2000 running 7's; in the Eighth.

The Honda needs something like a Wolfe "race" rear sway bar, with the correct preload, to keep the chassis from twisting on launch, and sending the car off to one side. Very predictable and very dangerous.

No need for the F-Body wheelstand. My buddy's 1,350 HP 4th Gen was running low 8’s, high 16X MPH, 1.2X 60-ft, and the front wheels never pulled more than 6-inches of air. $20 front suspension "limiters" tamed the 3-ft wheelstands. The LT1 record holder (8.039 @ 173.63 MPH), a 3rd Gen Camaro, doen't seem to pull the wheels even that much.
