    Wait, I`m missing something here. Is the purpose of this sport to have car that`s fastest, or the one that`s most highly flammable?

    Honestly, I don`t get the point of racing period. Drag, circuit... It all boils down to a pissing contest over which unbelievably expensive, barely-street-legal car gets from point A to point B faster... Or, in the case of circuit, which can get you around a big oval faster.

    Not only that, but it`s essentially just a huge waste of the oil that our soldiers are over in the Middle East trying to take...

    That doesn`t mean the explosions aren`t pretty awesome to watch, though...

    @Altaru, they`re not street legal in any way, shape or form. They`re rockets on wheels.

    They also don`t use oil. They use NO2 and methanol.

    Maybe not THESE car types, for this type, but I`m talking racing as a whole... I just don`t get what the point is...

    Alturo must be some NY metro kind of a guy. Those dragsters put out 8000hp and go from 0 to 300mph in about 4.5 seconds. That`s just plain awesome and hats off to the men and women that drive those rockets.

    Yeah, but... What does it doe BESIDES that other than waste time, energy, and money?

    Seriously, call me for the street racing.

    THAT is sweet. These cars are only cool when they`re exploding, to me at least. And I`m not gonna sit around watching all the boring ones waiting for the one that blows up...

    I can appreciate drag racing isn`t everyone`s cup of tea, but it`s a helluva lot of fun to go fast and few do it faster. Waiting behind two staged top fuel dragsters or funny cars is an experience almost guaranteed to bring a tear to your eye. lol

    @Djarum
    what engines use NO2? Top Fuel uses CH3NO2 (nitromethane) and some people use nitrous boosts on their gasoline-powered engines, but that`s N2O. I`ll assume you meant nitromethane (apologies if I`m wrong), in which case petroleum or natural gas is required since CH3NO2 is made from nitric acid treated propane.

    Just because you don`t see it as sport doesn`t mean others don`t. Useless show in your opinion but not to millions of others.

    Yeah, I have my doubts as to 3:11 not being fatal. On the other hand, a lot of the really spectacular crashes leave the driver relatively undamaged.

    @ Gradde: if you look at 3:15 the object closest to the ground is the intact roll cage. it would be a really bumpy ride but he does survive (i have a cassette with the aftermath of that crash on it)

    @Altaru: here is an interesting piece of information for you.

    in one day (24hrs) there is more fuel burnt in personal vehicles then there is from a whole year of racing (that includes all kinds of sanctioned racing)

    @Fuego Everyone recognizes the NO2 symbol, but if you put the hydrocarbon molecule in front of it, no one has a clue what you`re talking about. So calling it NO2 is the simplest thing to do.

    I do believe those tears of exhaust.

    bowlinguy yes but if you do the ratio between Lambo Hp and dragster Hp you see that Lambo have more performance.

    super performance cars and drag cars are built for completely different kinds of performance. Neither could do the other`s job effectively.

    @Djarum - sorry, I`m the one person who doesn`t recognize NO2 by itself, but I`m not native to NHRA. Years ago, a friend invited me to the Winston Super Nationals (tells you how long ago it was.) His dad was crew chief for a pro stock team so we got to go almost everywhere with the car.

    My buddy dragged me back to the staging area when the top fuel class started their qualifiers. The prevailing winds blew the exhaust straight towards us. The burnouts were as effective as tear gas.

    @ piperfawn: what performance are you talking about? street performance? of course a Lamborghini will top the dragster. Track performance? again, the Lambo wins. Straight line performance? not a hope in hell will it out perform the dragster.

    Lamborghini Murcielago;
    3638Lbs and 631Hp = 5.76 Lbs/hp

    Top Fuel Dragster;
    2300Lbs and 8500-10000hp = .27-.23 Lbs/hp

    Of course on straight road dragster win but what i say is that on virtual lambo have 1/10 of hp than dragster and is more heavy and the result of dragster is very poor if you think that as you say lambo need 10 seconds and dragster (10x hp and near half weight) 4 second.

    So dragster have a performence "JUST" half than Lamborghini also if have a power 10 time bigger and a weight that is near to half. At my eyes this is a fail for dragster.

    Some of those were just plain poo-outta luck, but some of them seemed like really dodgy engineering. Pretty sure those things are specifically designed not to flip up at the nose like that.

    @ piperfawn; your argument is retarded. there is so much more taking place than you think, it is not as simple as that. these dragsters are designed to have the most straight line performance possible. such as they have a really long wheel base so that the total mass needed to keep the front wheels on the ground is less, they have giant rear wheels so they can grip the ground. the exhaust is pointed up and backwards so that the 1000 pounds-force will work for the car. the rear airfoil produces around 12000 pounds-force at 300mph. the fuel is nearly compressed to a liquid state on the compression cycle. the fuel they use (nitromethane as it is commonly called in my end of the world) can combust without the presence of oxygen. the builders of these cars even go as far as using aluminum connecting rods instead of titanium so that they can absorb some of the shock of combustion. these are the best performing cars for straight line ACCELERATION. not to be confused with land speed record

    btw, i have seen cars that are heavier and less horsepower than a lambo accelerate faster than one. in that respect its down to the gearing, those supercars are designed to have an awesome top end. drag cars are designed to max out after 1/4 of a mile.

    at 3:11 its not as bad as it looks. At of race vehicles like these are designed to break apart leaving a roosterpit/cacoon around the driver as this one did. Alot of these ive seen on a movie called and the walked away. The one at the end i know for a fact he lived.

    There may have been no fatal crashes but they still got serious hurt.
