how much hp and what size engines are these guys using to get to the 150's in a 1000'?

I'd guess close to, or over 200 HP.

Very low center of gravity, very light weight, tons of traction and 200+ hp. Usually over 1000 cc tripple/tripples, built from the ground up for a single purpose:.....drag racing.

as a racer, I would say yer well over 200hp, probably closer to 300. I've seen a couple sleds turn 100-110mph in 500', and that is a friggn balls to the wall race sled, built from the ground up to go like hell. ya, probably atleast 250-300hp, and that's a minimum, I've heard of max-4's putting out over 400 for drag raceing, and those are still barely touching 150 in the 1/4, so to make that in 1000' that's pretty insane

The highest speeds I have ever seen were 154 MPH in 1/4 mile, and 156 MPH in 2000 feet, that is nuts, but I would certainly do it, that's why the guy's I sled with call me pin it.

If you don't believe you don't know much about racing sleds. Those results were from a guy here in Sudbury, Ontario who races pro mod drag sleds.

Sorry P-man!!!!

Where did someone go 150 mph in 1000'? That is unheard of in a sled. I checked out your link and the fastest 1000' speed was 130 mph which is un-godly. Just curious.

Ok ZRT, I was talking about Madcows question of 150 mph in 1000'. The 2000' foot mark is more realistic for those speeds. That link has some awesome sleds. There are some rockets for sleds listed there. The fastest I ever went on a sled under radar was only 119 mph. After seeing 140 to 150 mph speeds on that site, the speed I ran seems like a grocery run that my grandmother could do!!!!!!

That's what I thought that's why I deleted my reply, I didn't think you saw it, you must have entered the page right before I deleted it.

They ran a stock T-Cat 115 in 1000' No mods and that was a 900 with 168hp.
150 is another story, You are gonna need a purpose built drag sled. I think there was a V-Max 4 that ran 156 in the quarter at the NHRA nationals. Can't remember the exact time but was mid 8's I believe.
