NHRA dragster's fuel pump in action
Some visitors to the NHRA Museum caught a dragster fuel pump in action. The red Lego-like contraption at the lower left is a Waterman Super Bertha fuel pump, set up to deliver more than eight gallons per minute at wide-open throttle to each of the eight cylinders. You can see what the resulting jet of nitromethane looks like in the video after the jump.
