Description

Top Fuel Dragsters are the fastest racing cars on the planet. Powered by huge 8,000bhp engines, the quickest cars can accelerate from 0–100mph in less than a second, reaching over 330mph by the end of a quarter-mile timed run. The noise and spectacle of a Top Fuel Dragster in action is truly astonishing. This fascinating manual provides a unique insight into the engineering of these incredible machines, and takes a look behind the scenes from the perspective of the driver and team members to explain how the cars are designed, built, maintained and driven.
