First Firing of 540ci Dragster Engine on Methanol !
First firing of the new engine in the dragster. This is unbelievably loud! ..1700 BHP from a Supercharged 8.8 Litre (540cu) Running on Methanol ... This is a beast! The movie can't show just how loud this really is!

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

making roughly 20 lbs of Boost, and
approximately 1500 hp.

This is an engine combination we built for a TOP SPORTSMAN racer customer.
This is a great alternative for TOP DRAGSTER/TOP SPORTSMAN classes that are

combo can be built to fill different power needs.
