    In the 1960's Top Fuel Dragsters produced 2,500 Horsepower

    Today Top Fuel Dragsters and Funny Cars are "estimated" to develop 10,000 Horsepower.

    They can only guess ( use equations ) as no dynamometer in the world can test them.

    Horsepower greatly depends on tuning for a myriad of conditions, certain tracks and conditions may well require less power.

    If you look at a full series at KMan plenty of the qualifying rounds have in depth sessions on every facet of the cars.
    Some of the technology and problem solving is as good as anything.

    Drag racing opens it's doors to the public you can stand feet from cars and watch engines stripped rebuilt and run in 40 minutes.


    Article " The 10,000HP Engine " ( Matco Tools Team is owned by Don Schumacher Racing and are 2015 World Champions)........

    lol :D

    :eek:


    That will propel you from standing to 100mph in 0.8 seconds.



    P.S. How about that Pro Stock Final !
    Erica running a "perfect light" for the second time in a year.
    Guy next to her pulls a 0.015 reaction time and still gets beat. lol

    Ok thanks for the info. :) here in Germany there is just one event per year. It's in hockenheim an by far the most impressive motorsport event I've ever been. I love the tf dragsters. But nhra cars seems to be much more brutal xD

    Well Germany needs a world class full-time dragstrip then. :)

    Or would that flaunt green air policy ?

    lol

    Hundred vw less a year and Greenpeace would allow a full time drag strip in Germany. On the rico anthes quarter mile there is just one European drag racing round...but it's a good glued two lane drag strip with a real Christmas tree and not just a airfield [emoji14] I think it's a good start so far...so golfs and tf dragster seems to have the same fuel consumption [emoji16] [emoji6]
