I love the NHRA. It is amazing to how small those pistons and stroke truly are yet they produce upto 8k HP. If your a chevy guy, the Bigblock 454 has the same / simalar sized bore and just a little less stroke. For the Ford guys, the 490 is basically the same specs. Many of the big trucks today have more displacement than the top fuel / funny cars.
Image an alcohol or nitro injected PWC. That would be fun.

whats really cool is how the drivers will hook you up with parts from the motor as you stand by the trailer. thats why i love the sport

Watching them run was a blast,BUT the pits are the BOMB! We spent about 75% of the day down there.Thats were the real deal is.

Everytime i tried to film the warm ups,my new Sony HD camcorder went into a 'date error' mod from the concushion (spell check) of the motor.
