Top fuel dragsters are the most powerful cars built today. One Top Fuel dragster's 500-cubic-inch Hemi engine makes more horsepower than the first four rows at the Daytona 500. It is said that drivers experience more G's than an astronaut headed to space. They have spark plugs that are strong enough to weld metal. Their flame front's measure in temperatures up to 7000 degree's. Assuming that all of the equipment is paid off, the crew works gratis, and nothing breaks, each run costs an estimated $1000 per second and that crazy cost is because a dragster engine needs to be rebuilt EVERY RUN.

Wanna be asked some nerdy stuff? Well, I'd ask you how much engineering from a dragster engine could actually be taken and re-shaped in order to be applied in cars designed for circuit racing. I know we're talking about two opposite sides of the coin. Hence, that's why I am curious to know what could be taken from one and be applied on the other.

If it only lasts 4 seconds why not just use solid fuel rocket boosters or something? or is it more of a show of brute force engineering?

When a flame front travels faster than the speed of sound, it is called detonation. That is the definition of an explosion. You do not eve need to contain it but it is contained in these engines.

htmonaro1969 Před 8 dny
Your selling the engine life span a little short. They last perhaps as much as 5 times that, from when the crew fires the engine up in pre-staging, to the burn out and then staging before the run itself. Granted, they are only on full noise for the burn out and the run itself, but you didn't mention the other bits.
MesaB Před 8 dny
Top Fuel Engines are legit controlled chaos lol
MesaB Před 8 dny
It's not that those parts only last 8 seconds, they change them to avoid failure during a pass. They often check the parts for damage after removal and will reuse them if they check out. Also, they use engine oil to help keep the engines cool as well. Please do your research into things rather than just spilling garbage.

What stops them from omitting the entire intake manifold, valves, blower, etc. and burning the nitromethane as a pure mono-propellant without any air at all? Due the rules ban that as just too dangerous? Or is it just too hard to get it to burn/deflategate? (Mixing in a little dinitromethane would likely make it easier to use, but USDOT restrictions would force that to be synthesized on site.) If you could do that, you could then 2-stroking the thing (who needs the intake and compression stroke?) and double the power, or halve the size.

Also it leaks fuel while taxiing from when the panels cool and contract.

I want to add something to this. When the engine is dieseling, the reason why the flames being belched out of the exhausts is white, is because the aluminium in the engine is *LITERALLY BEING VAPORISED* and burned off along with the fuel. In any average home sedan engine, *or any other ICE engine really* , that would be a catastrophy. But with Top Fuel cars, *IT'S JUST PAR FOR THE COURSE* .

This is completely wrong... First NHRA is not the only racing league, that run top fuel dragsters and funny cars, there are many so that's not the only definition of rules across drag-racing(NHRA just happens to be most money hungry league). Second they make several passes if not several races in different leagues (the block and heads survive a great of amount of time). Yes expendables such as plugs, rubber get replaced frequently, but this notion that teams are doing engine swaps in between passes(at least four passes including test-and-tune for a race day are made) is completely false. I waited to see if the poster changed their narrative by the end of video, but the title still doesn't hold weight. I think you "Do-nut" know what you're talking about as far as drag racing, yet with that said you're knowledgeable in other things, but you struck out here. Be mindful that there are people that work with racing leagues that might watch your content.

i wonder if in the future they'll come up with a way to produce that amount of horsepower reliably in a commercialized engine.
