For horsepower, ZMAX in Charlotte, just ended. 4 wide top fuel dragsters. 32,000 horsepower. Makes a P51 Mustang look like a Cessna

windrider; Now take 4 and even 5 of your top fuel motors and put them on one machine all geared together and unleash them all at once and that's what you've got with the unlimited division of National Tracor pulling. The ground literally shacked from the pounding.

Been there, have pulled mini hot rod class, one motor 1750 pounds. Got old and quit. Father in law pulls antiques still, lot less maintenance and up keep, and a lot cheaper.

As for the shaking the ground, nothing like a P-51 Mustang either, watching in taxi out and take off. Hard to imagine 20 or more in a dog fight.

windrider; LOVE the 3-4 unlimited pullers that use the P-51 motors, one puller even uses 3 on one tractor 2 side by side and the third on top inbetween. WHAT A SOUND!!!

If you have the chance be sure and hit NASCAR when it's at Talladega. What an awesome track. Super steep banks and wide open all the way around. Been there twice and it is flat out racing. 3 & 4 wide a times. We're looking to go to Chicagoland in September. Has anyone been there and done that?

Those are blown alcohol motors on the tractors. Impressive but nowhere near the power of blown nitro motors. I've been on the starting line at Bandimere Speedway watching top fuel and that is a crazy feeling with 16,000 HP shaking the ground. Some friends of mine were at the 4-wides in Charlotte and said it was amazing!!
