    It would suck if a searing hot engine block landed on someone. Can you imagine, getting crushed by a 500 lbs block of metal at 1000 degrees.

    That is why everything on a Top Fuel dragster is strapped down. There are super-thick straps all over the blower and motor.

    Tractor pulling is awesome but that block needs to be strapped down somehow if possible.

    Still, what a manly sport. Build the strongest motor you can to pull heavy $#@! as far as you can.

    Super stock uses methanol and pro stock uses diesel.

    The mini class is just an SC V8 so I guess gasoline?

    THe first vid is definetly methanol as there is no exhaust smoke at all. If its running on good ol #2 diesel with a mix of meth it would still black out that barn. Not to mention it takes forever to spool those two turbos..

    That is a good point actually, it gets more difficult to pull as you go. Wonder who designed that and how the hell it works.

    Very intricate gearbox and reductions.

    The turbines are shaft power turbines, so they dont produce thrust; but torque and lots of it.

    These are probably helicopter engines. Helicopter engines have extremely high power to volume ratios, for instance a typical helicopter engine produces 500 shaft horsepower and is only 31" long and about 16" in diameter. No way to compare that size to a car engine, but the downside is they're gas guzzlers, although I dont think the tractor puller cares about that.

    Wow thats crazy. Here is one with only 2 Gas Turbine engines. I can only imagine what 4 would look like.

    ^^ although the guy is very ambitious he is stupid for sitting across the rotational axis of the turbines, if an engine suffers a blade-out (google it) he will lose his legs or die by getting cut in half.

    Usually those engines are encased in very thick metal to keep the blades from discharging out during failure and killing/maiming, those engines dont have the case and the guy has solid steel balls for sitting right in between the engines.
