Top Fuel @ Calder Park ~ FUCHS Nitro Thunder
In front of over 7000 Melbourne race fans, the ANDRA Drag Racing Series
marked its return after 12 years away from Australia's sporting capital
with thrilling action across three ANDRA pro categories.
Morgan defeated event debutante John Lamattina in a close fought final with
Morgan's 4.322 narrowly defeating a 4.556 from Lamattina.
Morgan paid credit to his crew for their efforts not just at Fuchs Nitro
Thunder presented by Crow Cams but across the whole season.
"This crew has been amazing not just today but every time they go to work
on this car," he said. "(Crew chief) Ben Patterson took a bit of a stab at
the tune up today after we had an ignition shut off on one run and then a
seized fuel pump in a warm up and sure enough it went down there -- he got
it right and to do that twice in one day is full credit to him.
"In the run before the final I was on the hand brake trying to keep
traction so Ben calmed it down for the final and it sailed on through."
Morgan defeated chief championship rival Phil Lamattina in the first
elimination round and with 74 points now separating the pair, qualifying
fifth or better at the Australian Nationals at Sydney Dragway in two weeks
would mean Morgan wraps up his fourth Top Fuel title.
"Championship wise it is what it is, we take the punches as we swing them,"

*** FUNNY *** Standing next to a 10,000 + Horsepower Nitro burning Top Fuel Hemi engine
*BEFORE COMMENTING* on actually how much horsepower is being made,
Check out my other video titled " 10,000 + horsepower from a modern Top
Fuel HEMI ! " Let Mike Dunn & Gary Gerold explain the facts to you first.
Standing next to a 10,000 + horsepower Top Fuel Hemi
engine. Everyone has to atleast once in thier lifetime!
Ahhh... The sights, smells and sounds of a Nitro Methane burning monster
Top Fuel Hemi engine. An exprience one doesn't soon forget. An experience
that can't properly be captured on a video. A sensation that'll leave you
in awe and always coming back for more!
*Old Info 2006* Drag racing is one of the most popular forms of motor sport
in this country. Hopped-up Hemis and blown big blocks shred tires and
thunder down the 1320 in no time flat. But even the quickest modified
street cars pale in comparison to the awesome power of Top Fuel Dragsters
& Funny Cars. In fact, the forces at work inside these cars are almost
unimaginable. Here are some specifics that really put top fuel power and
acceleration into perspective.
One Top Fuel dragster 500 cubic inch Hemi engine makes more horsepower than the first 4
rows at the Daytona 500.
Under full throttle, a dragster engine consumes 1½ gallons of nitromethane
per second; a fully loaded 747 consumes jet fuel at the same rate with 25%
less energy being produced.
A stock Dodge Hemi V8 engine cannot produce enough power to drive the
With 3000 CFM of air being rammed in by the Supercharger on overdrive, the fuel mixture is
compressed into a near solid form before ignition. Cylinders run on the
verge of hydraulic lock at full throttle.
At the stoichiometric 1.7:1 air/fuel mixture for nitromethane the flame
front temperature measures 7050 degrees F.
Nitromethane burns yellow. The spectacular white flame seen above the
stacks at night is raw burning hydrogen, dissociated from atmospheric water
vapor by the searing Exhaust gases.
Dual magnetos supply 44 amps to each spark plug. This is the output of an
arc welder in each cylinder.
Spark plug electrodes are totally consumed during a pass. After 1/2 way,
the engine is dieseling from compression plus the glow of Exhaust valves at 1400 degrees F. The engine can
only be shut down by cutting the fuel flow.
If spark momentarily fails early in the run, unburned nitro builds up in
the affected cylinders and then explodes with sufficient force to blow
cylinder heads off the block in pieces or split the block in half.
In order to exceed 300 mph in 4.5 seconds dragsters must accelerate at an
average of over 4G's. In order to reach 200 mph well before half-track, the
launch acceleration approaches 8G's. * Dragsters reach over 300 miles per
hour before you have completed reading this sentence.
Top Fuel Engines turn approximately 540 revolutions from light to light!
Including the burnout the engine must only survive 900 revolutions under
load. The redline is actually quite high at 9500 rpm.
The Bottom Line; Assuming all the equipment is paid off, the crew worked
for free, and for once NOTHING BLOWS UP, each run costs an estimated US
$1,000.00 per second. Putting all of this into perspective: You are driving
the average $140,000 Lingenfelter "twin-turbo" powered Corvette Z06. Over a mile up the
road, a Top Fuel dragster is staged and ready to launch down a quarter mile
strip as you pass.
You have the advantage of a flying start. You run the 'Vette hard up
through the gears and blast across the starting line and past the dragster
at an honest 200 mph.The 'tree' goes green for both of you at that moment.
The dragster launches and starts after you. You keep your foot down hard,
but you hear an incredibly brutal whine that sears your eardrums and within
3 seconds the dragster catches and passes you. He beats you to the finish
line, a quarter mile away from where you just passed him.
Think about it; from a standing start, the dragster had spotted you 200 mph
and not only caught, but nearly blasted you off the road when he passed you
within a mere 1320 foot long race course. That, folks is acceleration!
