Holy freakin' rap. It's time for you to start thinking these questions out before submitting them. For instance, what drag application?

Better yet I'll give you an answer and you can tell me why I'm wrong. I'll take a Hemi anyday. 6000 horsepower can't be wrong.

So there's only one type of 1/4 mile drag racing now, eh? I gave you an answer. Which do you think is best and why?

If you appreciate being backed up by someone who apparently doesn't know about 6000 hp Hemi's, good for you. Please respond to posts 4 and 7.

What? Huh? Actually I don't. I just learned something new today. On my birthday! You never stop learning I guess. I never heard of a 6,000hp vechile thats why I said that sounds like spaceship speed. I didn't even know that something can have so many horses.

I also didn't know that I was backing up anyone.

Anywell. My AIM is DJ Nonsense 2 but I have to add you on before you can talk to me. Privacy

How about some marine diesel engines? 23,000 bhp...How does that sound? An engine as big as a house..





It may be more ignorance than knowlage speaking but i would choose the Hemi too..
