Rocket cars

A few weeks ago I attended a drag racing event at Santa Pod raceway in the UK. The event was part of the FIA drag racing championships.

During the event they showcase what are known as funny cars. FireForce attended with 2 different rocket cars.

  • Develops thrust with the equivalent of 10,000 BHP.
  • Has a 1/4 mile speed of 336mph.
  • Completed the 1/4 mile in a staggering 5.793 seconds.

FF5

  • Thrust of over 5,500lbs, + 10,000 HP
  • It has an engine from a Sikorsky Skycrane helicopter.
  • Has achieved the 1/4 mile in 5.69 seconds.
