cause if what your saying was true diesel powered vehicles would be the fastest cars on the
They would be if you could shift an infinite ratio transmission fast enough with no slip...and pumped enough boost into it. Try running 60 psi of boost at 21:1 compression with gasoline, only diesel is capable. Just because race rules favor gasoline dragsters does'nt mean a diesel couldn't run with the big boys, take away nitromethane and diesel would rule.
