‘Top Fuel’ Dragsters have the same power as twelve F1 cars, drink as much fuel as a 747 at take-off and their drivers experience the same G-Force as astronauts did on the Space Shuttle.

All that power means the tyres have to be pretty special to get the car from zero to almost 320mph in under 4 seconds.

But, how do these specialised tyres help the dragsters pull 4 and a half G under acceleration? Why do they wrinkle like this and how do Dragsters reach such incredible speeds? All of that coming up.

The EPA is Deleting the Delete

The EPA is Deleting the Delete

On this episode I detail the new fine that was handed out by the EPA to Perfomance Diesel Inc for 1.1 million dollars and what that means for the tuning industry as a whole. The EPA has also started a task force called the National Compliance Initiative: Stopping Aftermarket Defeat Devices for Vehicles and Engines

The sole purpose of this task force is: This NCI will focus on stopping the manufacture, sale, and installation of defeat devices on vehicles and engines used on public roads as well as on nonroad vehicles and engines.

So, basically any tuning on your vehicle (gas or diesel) must be 50 state legal. It does not matter if the vehicle in question is an offroad or race vehicle. It still must remain emissions compliant. The way all of this information is worded it does not matter if your vehicle is gas or diesel. The factory tuning or 50 state (CARB) tuning must be used in the vehicle. Where this situation gets interesting is when you look at truck and tractor pulls. Most of those engines are some type of Cummins, Powerstroke, or Duramax. Even competition vehicles cannot be deleted or roll coal.

You can read the information right off the EPA’s website here:
