Drag racing cars boast of some of the most insane and very heavy modifications. Several custom parts and heavily tuned engines are the norm here. Built for delivering the fastest time on the quarter mile, these engines are extremely powerful, generating excessive amounts of horsepower. These heavy modifications, custom parts and high rpms can make the engine prone to failures sometimes resulting in expensive drag racing engine explosions.
Whether it’s pistons that kiss the valves and blow right through or engines that catch on fire, it’s all here!
