Default Top Fuel Dragsters

The world record for Top Fuel dragsters (the caricature of which is in my avatar) is 4.4 seconds held by Tony Schumacher...His terminal speed was supposedly just short of 550 km/h.

And, to truly understand why these cars are mindblowingly fast, some of the amazing facts about them (I remember reading this & saving it on my comp. somewhere about 2 years ago, so don't blame me for not posting the source):


* One NHRA Top Fuel dragster 500 cubic inch Hemi engine makes more horsepower than all the cars in the first 4 rows at the Daytona 500.

* Under full throttle, a Top Fuel dragster engine consumes 1 gallons of nitro methane per second; a fullyloaded 747 consumes jet fuel at the same rate with 25% less energy being produced.

* A stock Dodge 426 Hemi V8 engine cannot produce enough power to drive the dragster's supercharger.

* With 3000 CFM of air being rammed in by the supercharger on overdrive, the fuel mixture is compressed into a near-solid form before ignition. Cylinders run on the verge of hydraulic lock at full throttle.

* At the stoichiometric 1.7:1 air/fuel mixture for nitro methane the flame front temperature measures 7050 degrees F.

* Nitro methane burns yellow. The spectacular white flame seen above the stacks at night is raw burning hydrogen, dissociated from atmospheric water vapor by the searing exhaust gases.

* Dual magnetos supply 44 amps to each spark plug. This is the output of an arc welder in each cylinder.

* Spark plug electrodes are totally consumed during a pass. After 1/2 way, the engine is dieseling from compression plus the glow of exhaust valves at 1400 degrees F. The engine can only be shut down by cutting the fuel flow.

* If spark momentarily fails early in the run, unburned nitro builds up in the affected cylinders and then explodes with sufficient force to blow cylinder heads off the block in pieces or split the block in half.

* In order to exceed 300 mph in 4.5 seconds dragsters must accelerate at an average of over 4G's. In order to reach 200 mph well before half-track, the launch acceleration approaches 8G's.

* Dragsters reach over 300 miles per hour before you have completed reading this sentence.
* Top Fuel Engines turn approximately 540 revolutions from light to light!
* Including the burnout the engine must only survive 900 revolutions under load.
* The redline is actually quite high at 9500 rpm.
* The Bottom Line; assuming all the equipment is paid off, the crew worked for free, and for once NOTHING BLOWS UP, each run costs an estimated $1,000.00 per second. The current Top Fuel dragster elapsed time record is 4.441 seconds for the quarter mile (10/05/03, Tony Schumacher). The top speed record is 333.00 mph (533 km/h) as measured over the last
66' of the run (09/28/03 Doug Kalitta).

Imagine this: You are riding the average $250,000 Honda MotoGP bike. Over a mile up the road, a Top Fuel dragster is staged and ready to launch down a quarter mile strip as you pass. You have the advantage of a flying start. You run the RC211V hard up through the gears and blast across the starting line and past the dragster at an honest 200 mph (293 ft/sec). The 'tree'goes green for both of you at that moment. The dragster launches and starts after you. You keep your wrist cranked hard, but you hear an incredibly brutal whine that sears your eardrums and within 3 seconds the dragster catches and passes you. He beats you to the finish line, a quarter mile away from where you just passed him.

Think about it, from a standing start, the dragster had spotted you 200 mph and not only caught, but nearly blasted you off the road when he passed you within a mere 1320 foot long race course.

That, folks, is acceleration.

i will shortly be going to have this opportunity of seeing Top Fuel Driven Vehicle in action - to be precise on 10 & 11 November.

The advert says the machine produces in excess of 6000BHP (yes Six Thousand) and touches 530kmph.

will make sure i am there and get some good pics for you car freaks.

ive seen a Camaro 1969 model v12 doing the in 6.51 seconds @ 351kmph. The Fastest Car in the Gulf Drag Race.

I have Pictures of the owner Aryan, and the Car nicknamed (Green Giant)

The beast infact wheelies for almost half the distance. to be seen live.

Videos dont do any justice to the engine roar and the speed in actual.

i havent seen the video but if u say starting 4 secs late and the M5 pulling up then that Competitor's car sucks or the nut behind the wheel is taking driving lessons. 4 secs is a big time if the video u have is a Drag.

Once again i have not seen the video.
