One of the great joys in life is initiating someone to the experience of the brutality of a Top Fuel Nitro drag racing car - these unleashed beasts of hell invariably invoke the first time viewer to scream in terror, jump through the roof, run for cover or freeze in shock. There is nothing else like these cars - just the sound wave alone (a staggering 1 tonne of thrust at the exhaust pipes) vibrates the ground like a minor Earthquake, pounds your entire body with a sonic thud and tears your eardrums to shreds - if you look at them from the wrong angle and cop the sonic blast direct to the face it distorts your EYES so that you can't see clear. And they are just outrageously fast - 0 to 530kph in 4.5 seconds - thats twice the top speed of a bullet train - a blurring 150 metres (3 Olympic swimming pools) per second and faster acceleration than the space shuttle - they accelerate so fast that if an F1 car went by them on the start line already at full speed of 370kph - these Top Fuel Dragsters would hunt them down within this 4.5 second, 400 metre strip - it's actually surreal - it doesn't even feel like watching a car it's more like a military missile. They are actually now so fast that the time is so quick you really don't even have time to appreciate how fast they are going - like a shooting star - by time you realise it's there it's already finished - these things are insane.
