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
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!!!!!!
ask alien he set up some sleds that did 140 in 1000' rick and randy shellback from rush city mn. have a sled that usually gets close to the 150's. good conditions a little better. randy chilson from rush city has a improved stock 1000 sled that is good for 140+ he has 240 hp htg xcr engine, i wanted to know if there is a class that you could run the 1200 or bigger engines in and what hp the 1000 open mod sleds are.
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.
