1978 NHRA Sportsnationals
The late, great, Modified eliminator. If you've never witnessed Modified
Production and Gas-class cars in action, you really missed drag racing's
most exciting era!
Sure, drag cars are making more horsepower and torque than
ever, with resulting quicker and faster ET's and MPH, but the sounds of these
high rpm, manual shift race cars--sans any electronic rev limiters--is no
longer around. Ditto for the mean sounding/cool looking dry hops, as the
cars approach the start line (after the burnout) is unfortunately, a thing
of the past.
V8 turbo engine high rpm sounds amazing
Approx 1000hp (depending on Boost
) - Lexus 1UZ-FE engine, aluminium block 32 valves wih 6 bolt mains 4.2
displacement stock - pretty much block is only standard part (way oversize
bore) and is in excess of $10,000
Top Fuel Nitro Motorcycle Import vs Harley - Larry "Spiderman" Mcbride 5.83et @ 232mph
Dragbike Live was on location at the Manufacturers Cup Finals held November
12-14 2010 at South Georgia Motorsports Park in Georgia when Top Fuel Nitro
motorcycle legendary drag racer Larry "Spiderman" Mcbride against V-Twin
Top Fuel Harley rider Tommy Grimes aboard the Ray Price Top Fuel Nitro
entry met in the final round. Mcbride ran an incredible 5.830 elapsed time
at 232.75 miles per hour for the win! This was a historic final
round,marking the first time a V-Twin Top Fuel Nitro burner would face off
against an import Top Fuel Nitro Methane injected drag bike.
11,000rpm Burnout at UBC2
UPDATE - Talked to Harry about this video the other day. He confirmed that
the tacho recall read 11,200rpm and he also told me the engine didn't die,
it sheered the rollpin in the distributor and put the timing way out. which
is why it turned over but wouldn't fire properly. the engine did another 3
or 4 shows after this and even then it only needed bearing and valve
There's no mechanical sympathy here. Listen to this thing scream when Harry
Haig gets into it during the second annual Ultimate Burnout Challenge held
at Avalon Speedway. The engine sounds more like something you'd hear in a
pro-stock car than on the burnout track. It's no surprise that the engine
can't handle that kind of sustained rpms but it's still amazing to watch
and listen to.
