NHRA Drag Racing - Drag Racing Jet car outtakes
Jet car outtakes, June 2003, Race City in Calgary. This is about as close
as you'll ever get to a jet car, more than few unique angles. Jett Force,
Brad Janishewski's Rollin' Thunder are featured
The Rollin' Thunder Jet Car is a custom moulded Honda Civic complete with
ground effects. It features a Westinghouse-built J34 jet engine from an old
US Navy F2 McDonnell Douglas fighter jet, capable of burning 30 litres of
fuel in six seconds, generating 6,000 horsepower and 12,000 lbs of
thrust at speeds of 250 miles per hour!

304 MPH Santa Pod Top Fuel Drag Racing
8000HP Top Fuel Dragsters in the European Finals
In real life you don't hear Top Fuelers, you feel them!!! Turn up the
volume to give you some idea.
As the editor of Road and Track magazine once said "I had never seen a Top
Fuel Dragster warm its tires in a burnout before, and I was stunned. The
rear slicks grow as the centrifugal force acts upon the soft compound
rubber, until the tires appear to be twice the size.Its all still vividly
in my mind all these years later, cemented in place by the NOISE! To this
day, having spent a lot of time around all manner of race cars, I can
truthfully say that I have never experienced that sort of incredibly
ferocious noise; a sound that is like some huge monster ripping apart a
steel billet with its bare hands in front of the worlds largest amplifier.
Engine response is quick and nearly terrifying in its shriek. And as the
revs run up, the pain in your ears is magnified by the bones of your skull
and then starts to pierce your organs and your limbs."
