    Joey - looks to me like you are spending too much time at work and not enough time packing to come to visit for the weekend. MOM

    Can somone explain the "First 8 rows at Daytona" thing for me?
    Humor me, I'm bored, so I tried to do the math. Where's the error?
    First 8 rows of Daytona = 16 cars.
    Winton Cup Car Hp = ~725.
    725x16=11,600 hp.
    Isn't a top fuel motor around 6500 hp?

    Don't forget the Nascar engines usually last 500 miles at near WOT in very high temps. It takes alot of skill to build an engine to last like that.

    audacity, great facts. I love drag racing and am amazed that they can even get them things to go 1/4 mile! Everything has to be perfect.

    Couple other facts I have picked up:
    The rear wing generates 6000-7000 lbs of down-force.
    The blowers generate 40+ lbs of boost.
    The fuel pumps are rated for 140 gallons/second

    Tell me more!!!

    With a shaft dyno they pegged it when calibrated to 5000 ft-lbs TQ and had it recalibrated to 10,000 ft-lbs TQ and now it is OK. Somewhere around ? 8000. They won't tell.
