Some Top Fuel questions to the educated ones


Hi there, I’m not Johnny Liberman, but I’m interested in Top Fuel. I have a few questions about the sport, to which I failed to find answeres.

1. Why do Funny Cars and Top Fuel dragsters use individual exhaust pipes?

2. How do these cars reverse? Since there is no gearbox, there is a reverse in the axle?

3. Why do they use wet sump? Seems to give sufficient lubrication, but a dry sump would lower the CoG and thus wheelies.
