That's a nice truck.

Is the nitro harley the fastest type of drag bikes or are there faster versions?

Do you drive one?

Can you describe the experience?

Brave Dog,

Top Fuel Harleys are quite fast, typically low to mid 6 second range at around 220mph. They are injected with 96-98% Nitro, 175 cubic inches, 750 - 800lbs, one or two speed and make around 800hp.

My bike (yes I ride it) is a Pro Dragster, 120" carbureted Nitro, 400lbs, single speed that makes 400hp. Pro Dragsters run in the mid 7's with the record at 7.21 seconds

The multi cylinder top fuel bikes have more potential to be faster but there are only a handful in the country that are. The world record is a high five second run at approx 250mph.

The sensation in not comparable to anything else I have ever done. It feels damn good on the top end of the track. Nothing I have ever done makes my heart pound so hard.

Phil

Phil- are you going to be in Las Vegas for the NHRA Summit Racing Nationals? I'd like to see your rig if you are there. Thanks Gordy
