There’s no doubt NHRA’s Top Fuel Dragsters are the fastest accelerating race cars in the world. Powered by nitromethane fuel, these dragsters will do 0-60 mph in 0.2 sec and can reach a top speed of over 300 mph in a quarter mile.
It requires immense skill and concentration to keep the 7000 hp machines pointed in a straight line. But, once in a while things to go wrong and thanks to modern camera equipment we can relish some of the moments in slow motion.
This footage of a NHRA Top Fuel Dragster drifting in slow motion is probably the best video you’ll see all day. Watch as the driver counter-steers a 7000 hp dragster at 330 mph. Pure insanity!
