Top Fuel Dragster Helmet Cam - Phil Read
Phil Read Elimination round 1 at Perth Motorplex, January 29th 2011. Helmet
cam view of Phil's pass. $800 worth of Nitro Methane gone in 2 minutes. Supercharger blows off and yet another
fireball in the second half of the pass. Car still ran 4.90, but had more
speed at half track than at the finish. Next pass was more steady and much
faster - 311mph (501kph) in a
virtual dead heat with Phil Lamattina. 4.806 vs 4.808. TOP FUEL is
something you HAVE to experience first-hand at some stage in your life,
even if just once. And if you like this clip, you'll love this one:
On-board footage of dragster crash
Blown head gasket dumps water in front of the tires causing dragster to
veer into the wall and flip, landing upside down. Thanks to the excellent
track emergency team and the strongly-built car, the driver sustained no
injuries. The car is capable of 200+ MPH and sub-7 second 1/4 mile passes.
It is powered by a turbo-charged 2.2
liter 4-cylinder GM EcoTech engine producing nearly 1600 HP.
GoPro HD Hero: Top Dragster view of the Supercharger! 6.70 @ 206 mph!
Here is another qualifying pass from No Problem Raceway 6.70 @ 206 mph!
Keep in mind, the air conditions were not favorable on this day. What
you're looking at is a 509 c.i. half-filled aluminum block with Brodix Big
Duke heads, and a Kobelco 10-71 Hi-Helix strapped on top. This combo is
making roughly 20 lbs of Boost, and
approximately 1500 hp.
Top Fuel Engines? Controlled Nukes
If anybody thinks it's magic to get 8,000 hp out of a top fuel
engine...think again. It takes science, technology and a skilled tuner to
make these thing run with exploding. The Chinese would love to have this
technology, maybe they would blow themselves up.
