Top Fuel

What is Top Fuel

Top Fuel dragsters are the quickest accelerating racing cars in the world and the fastest sanctioned category of drag racers, with the fastest competitors reaching speeds of 539 kilometers per hour (335 mph) and finishing the 305 meters (1,000 ft) runs in 3.64 seconds. A top fuel dragster accelerates from a standstill to 100 mph in as little as 0.8 seconds (less than one third the time required by a production Porsche 911 Turbo to reach 60 mph) and can exceed 280 mph in just 660 feet. This subjects the driver to an average acceleration of about 39 m/s2 (4.0 g) over the duration of the race and with a peak of over 55 m/s2 (5.6 g). ------- > "Fun Facts link"
