The science behind the massive 48-pound Top Fuel tires | 2018 NHRA DRAG RACING



  1. Hey all you drag racing guys.. why are drag car's tires so close together, like why do they have skinny axels on the NHRA cars, and even on street drag cars, a ton of them have their tires tucked way under the fenders.. Wouldn't you want a really wide and low car..? It's hard to google this question as well lol

  2. I'm most impressed that it can handle that insane starting torque with out shredding to bits. They're super light when you think about the size / surface area.
