Kinda off topic, but just for fun.
In 1938, Fire Chief Cash U. Nutt got a new fire buggy. It was used to augment the fire departments services. What was unusual about it?

How about something I learned today at the drags. What is the tank like container sitting on top of the clutch area on a top fuel dragster?

Hint: It's required that it be 5 gallon.

I thought it was the crankcase vent catch can. But, unless NHRA changed the rules, it has to be 6.75 gal.

It ain't that easy - you have to know the material, no. of threads/pitch, whether it's lubed, etc and the actual clamping force needed to hold a mating surface. It's done, usually, hydraulically, tho often with a slugging wrench and it's checked via the stretch method.

For a 4" bolt - a heluva lot, regardless

You got it Dad, I couldn't for the life of me figure it out while up in the stands looking at the cars. Then in the pits saw one on the ground and it made since. After talking to a driver about it he explained how it saves track clean up and so forth and how a little oil on the tires at 300 mpg isn't nice.

I assume these things were around years ago, but they have gotten much bigger!

It's your floor!

I was thinking the same thing when I read that. Only I was thinking how dumb I was as to not be able to answer it, IF it is a simple question. Guess I may not be THAT dumb.

Plain torque= standard bolt unlubricated 52,100 ft lbs Milspec specifies a 250:1 torque multiplier requiring a input torque of only 261 ft lbs.

Continuing the drag racing theme.

What is the minimum dimension for the lettering indicating class designation on an NHRA legal car and what material used to make these letters is expressly prohibited?

LOLOL, man that is a good one. Without googling I am going to guess at 6" tall on the letters and rainbow tape is prohibited.
