Race car - Performance
A Top Methanol Funny Car can reach over 400 km/h in 5.5 seconds in best case.
This is the top performance pace in the USA. Kjell and Pritona Racing Team are
working their way into the class, knowing that it takes several years of
experience to reach that level.
The racecar can reach acceleration of up to 3.5 G shortly after start and fades of to about 1.0 G closing up to the finish line.
