An Alcohol Funny Car is a drag racing vehicle that is built for maximum acceleration within a certain set of rules administered by the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). It can have a maximum wheelbase of 125" and must have a "stock appearing" body similar to a production vehicle that can be made out of fiberglass or carbon fiber. The car must have an internal combustion engine displacing a maximum of 565 cubic inches that is supercharged and it must use methanol as a fuel.
Within these rules, the National Record is 5.61 seconds at 257.80 MPH for the standing-start quarter mile. Our best time is 5.84 seconds at 242 mph.
