Top fuel dragsters are the most powerful cars built today. One Top Fuel dragster's 500-cubic-inch Hemi engine makes more horsepower than the first four rows at the Daytona 500. It is said that drivers experience more G's than an astronaut headed to space. They have spark plugs that are strong enough to weld metal. Their flame front's measure in temperatures up to 7000 degree's. Assuming that all of the equipment is paid off, the crew works gratis, and nothing breaks, each run costs an estimated $1000 per second and that crazy cost is because a dragster engine needs to be rebuilt EVERY RUN.

"The inertia of the piston reciprocating up and down exponentially increases the effective weight of a piston as your RPMs go up". False. It's a linear relationship. You are confusing inertia and momentum.

Both images are hemispherical head design. When ever the spark plug is top dead center and the valves are on either side, its a hemispherical design. When the spark plug is off to the side, that is a non hemispherical head. The whole idea behind the hemispherical head is the spark plug is top, dead center. The flame front then comes straight down on center of the piston. Which allows much more advanced timing and smoother, more power out of the engine.

Premium user here, yet I get ads, I am unsubbing, sorry when ads are forced onto me (see what I did there), I leave for that exact reason because I know that you have sold your channel to these brands with contracts. Shame really because this channel had and probably still has some good content.

“Your average car can last over 3,000 hrs of run time.” At an average speed of 35 mph, that equates to only 105,000 miles. An average of 50 mph equates to 150,000 miles. Obviously it depends on how fast you drive, but both those figure seem very low to me!

The motors in dragsters use a centrally mounted camshaft , which use roller lifters, push rod and rocker arms to actuate the valves. Your animation shows a Double Over Head Cam (DOHC) set up which would indicate four camshafts, two cams per cylinder bank. Just though you should know.

Hey man correction on the video. Top fuel cars do not use MLS gaskets. They use a solid copper gaskets with o ring groves cut in the head with steel hoop rings on the cylinder sleeve so it cuts into the copper and presses it into the cylinder head

Kinda makes me want this stuff banned. I'm not allowed to run my rx8 for years to come even if I go eco friendly with it because people complain about emissions, yet this scene is literally wasteful in every regard. Rubber, Metal, Fuel, etc. The most ironic thing is that the dragster will never take you anywhere useful... And very much more harmful than a niche type of car that takes me to work or stores for years.
