Great Pic Alan ! That's not a bad time for a 350 that's cranking out 600 hp. I go to the "Winter Nationals" in Pomona, California each year and I'm constantly amazed at the time and speeds they are getting. Like 333 mph ! Incredable.

 

BTW, I have finished removing all of the black borders from the photos I scanned. Now the borders are all white and sure look a lot better than that nasty black :huh:

 

Just a little trivia about drag racing:

 

If a dragster was sitting at the starting line cranked and ready to go and a Corvette was going 200 mph and at the exact time he got to the starting line at that speed, the dragster would start, the dragster would beat the Corvette to the finish line in 1/4 mile !! That puppy is going an incredable 488+ ft/sec.

 

One top fuel dragster's 500-cubic inch Hemi engine makes more HP than the first four rows at the Daytona 500.

 

With a red line that can be in excess of 9500 rpm, top fuel engines turn only approximately 540 revolutions from light to light.

 

Tony Schumacher set a record elapsed time of 4.441 seconds for the 1/4 mile on October 5, 2003 at a speed of 333.25 mph----Catch me if you can---WOW !!

 

At the stoichiometric 1.7:1 air-fuel mixture for nitromethane, the flame front temperature measures about 7000 degrees F.

 

Have a great weekend Alan :) And thanks for the great pic of your ride. BTW, you need a few more people in the stands lol.

Hi Frank

Glad to here you found a work around for your scanned photos, maybe Bruce will come up with something else when he gets back from holidays.

Thanks for the trivia makes interesting reading I new about the engine revs one I think we worked it out one night over a few beers :) the calculations took a while!!!

You have a great weekend to, I think that was one of the first qualifying runs of the day but then again Adelaides only a little town. :D
