Ahhhh, that ain't NUTHIN! My Prelude could take it in heartbeat! See, the only reason these numbers are not disputed or different is because I've just kept my car off the track......you know, don't want to shame all these guys who've spent so much money, time and effort...... :lol: :wink:

I haven't watched drag racing in a long time but caught a glimpse of some NHRA top fuel dragsters last week in a restaurant. They were running 3.8 sec times! Is that 1/4 or 1/8 mile times?

That'd be the 1/4 time.

Incredible when you think about the physics involved in hurling something down a road that quickly. I guess that's what 8000 hp gets you.

Oops. Sorry. The NHRA races 1000ft events now for safety reasons.

Like I said ...... that ain't nuthin.

The Prelude is so fast, they don't even record her times in seconds. They record eyeblinks.

She runs the quarter in one blink of an eye. You just see her at the light-pole and then she's at the end of the track. BLINK. Just like THAT.

Amazing to watch. (if you can actually see it happen)

Of course, due to this incredible speed, I can't get any kind of video or anything to put up. Naturally. You understand that.
