The Blind Attack is a technique used by Takumi Fujiwara during which he shuts his Eight-Six's headlights when close to an opponent, so the opponent can't see where his car is from the rear-view mirror or judging from his car's headlights.
There is another advantage, which is reduced aerodynamic drag. Since the car's pop-up headlights reduce the car's airflow by a small amount, creating drag, by turning the headlights off, the car's airflow is smoother, creating less aerodynamic drag.
In the Arcade Stage series, blind attack can be used by holding the Start button down for a few seconds. However, the player's speed is unaffected by it. Starting from Arcade Stage 4, using it disables the "Advantage" meter for the victim and some of Arcade Stage 8 Infinity and Arcade Stage Zero's story missions require the use of the technique in order to complete an objective.
