Top Fuel Dragster

Some Amazing facts about Dragsters are:
- One Dragster's 500-inch Hemi makes more horsepower then the first 8 rows at
- Under full throttle, a Dragster engine consumes 1 1/2 gallons of nitro per
second, the same rate of fuel consumption as a fully loaded 747 but with 4 times
the energy volume.
- The supercharger takes more power to drive than a stock hemi makes.
- Dragsters twist the crank 9torsionally) so far (20 degrees in the big end of the
track) that sometimes cam lobes are ground offset from front to rear to re-phase
the valve timing somewhere closer to synchronization with the pistons.
- To exceed 300mps in 4.5 seconds Dragsters must accelerate at an average of over
4G's. but in reaching 200 mph well before 1/2 track, launch acceleration is closer
to 8G's.
- If all the equipment is paid off, the crew worked for free, and for once nothing
blows up, each run actually costs $1000 per second.
- Dragsters reach over 300 miles per hour before you have read this sentence.
- Even with nearly 3000 CFM of air being rammed in by the supercharger on overdrive,
the fuel mixture is compressed into nearly-solid form before ignition. Cylinders
run on the verge of hydraulic lock.
- Sparkplug 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 off its fuel flow.
