Top Fuel Drag Boats are Lightning on Water

Who even knew you could go that fast on water?

Top fuel dragsters are about as insane as vehicles get. When it comes to straight-line acceleration, nothing else even comes close. But they are generally very purpose-built for going fast on blacktop. How well would the concept work on water? Terrifyingly well is the answer, as you will see from the following video of 8,000-horsepower top fuel boats hitting 262 mph. They throw up plumes of water the way top fuel cars lay down patches of rubber. It’s awesome.

It’s a short video, but you get to see all you need to, and it’s the sort of thing that demands to be seen.
