Whats the fastest 1/4 mile time, period?

So whats the fastest a human body has moved a quarter of a mile at the track?

I dont care if its the pro drag cars or hell jet cars, whatever!

Whats the world record time for an automobile to run?

I saw some drag cars running 4.44's @ 300 something last night... It's amazing those guys don't have brain trauma.

Information taken from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drag_racing

The fastest top fuelers can attain terminal speeds of over 330 mph (530 km/h) while covering the quarter mile (402 m) distance in roughly 4.45 seconds. It is often related that Top Fuel dragsters are the fastest accelerating vehicles on Earth; quicker even than the space shuttle launch vehicle or catapult-assisted jet fighter (however this ignores the hydrogen peroxide rocket dragsters such as Kitty O'Neil's 3.22 ET and 412 MPH quarter mile world records set in 1977). In fact, if you take a vehicle traveling at a steady 200 mph (322 km/h) as it is crossing the start line, a top fuel dragster starting from a dead stop at the same moment will beat it to the finish line one quarter of a mile (402 m) away. Additionally, through the use of large multiple braking parachutes, the astounding performance of 0 to 330 mph (531 km/h) and then back to 0 in 20 seconds can be obtained. Deceleration of up to five G can be attained, enough to cause separated retinae in TF drivers.


Pretty insame stuff if you ask me.

If you ever get a chance to see Top Fuel dragsters run go see it. Its the most amazing thing to see those things. Its one of the loudest things I've ever heard. You can feel all your internal organs vibrating against each other and thats being 100 yards away from it in the stands, theres no way to describe the feeling you get inside, literally.

Yea that was run over in the UK. The guy only drove the car 2 times. He almost killed himself both times ran off the end of the track. I got to meet him several years ago at one of the Nostalgia Races here in NJ. Crazy guy. .
