The Top Fuel Hydros (TFH) are the quickest and fastest of the Drag Boat Family.  TFH are the equivalent of the Top Fuel Dragsters racing on asphalt.  Nitro burning TFH Engines produce 7,000 HP.  TFH can cover the quarter mile in 4.6 seconds at speeds exceeding 255 MPH.  Half Track (1/8 mile) ET’s of 2.8 seconds and speeds over 200 MPH within 600 feet.  Most TFH weigh close to 4,000 pounds and use two propellers to apply the 7,000 HP to the water.

The boats are very accurate and in almost all components there were actual drawings sent to China, from the Hull, Mags, Drive Assembly, Capsule, Roll Cage and engine components, this project took sixteen months to build.

1:18 Scale TFH Diecast is approximately 13 ½” Long and 5 ½” wide. Actual boat is approximately 20’ long

Drag Boats come with Stand enclosed in the box.  Clear round plastic tool in top of box is used to open side magnetic hatch panels to show foam, batteries & air bottles.  Cowl behind Capsule is magnetic and is removable to show the W-Drive Twin Propeller Drive Assembly.  The Capsule is also removable, once the Cowl is removed place fingers on the rear of Capsule and lift upward while not grabbing the side loops.  The Capsule has a functional opening Canopy (F-16 Fighter Canopy) displaying seat belts, oxygen system, latches, steering wheel & throttle.  With Capsule in the boat the Steering function can be seen by turning the Steering Wheel, do not try to turn Steering from the Rudder.

The TFH Engine has opening butterflies, fuel lines, blower restraint safety blanket, twin MSD Mags, MSD Pro Mag 44 Boxes & Coils, oil pump, Bellhousing, port nozzles, starter, fuel shut off and barrel valve. Note top Mag has black plug wires and bottom Mag has red plug wires and both Mags are in time.

Twin Prop Assembly on the bottom of the Hull. Functional Rudder Assembly, Fuel tank, fuel hose and engine oil breather system and twin Parachute assembly w/safety straps. The Hull is a Water Craft by Wolfie, the most common and currently the fastest Hull racing. All six boats are Water Craft Hulls.

Each Hull has a brass serial number plate on the bottom of the hull with consecutive serial numbers from 001 to 1,250.  Actual current photos of the boats and crew members decorate the color packaging.

There are six boats for 2006, one release each Month starting in July.

Dante’s boat made it into the Pertronix Performance catalog!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Theoretical Top Speed Formula
Well let’s see…engine rpm x’s gearing x’s prop pitch x’s 60 (as in 60 minutes per hour, as in mph) ALL divided by how many inches in a mile (12″ x’s 5,280′= 63,360) I think this will give you mph at any given rpm (theoretically)

So.. 5,000rpm X’s 1.25 (gearing as in 25% overdrive) X’s 15″ prop X’s 60 All DIVIDED BY 63,360 should equal 88.78 MPH

 


 

PROP SLIPAGE
Theoretical mph = engine rpm x gear ratio/ (1056/prop pitch) 6800×1.18/(1056/15)= 114mph now you deduct slip, at 15% you’ll run 97mph at 18% you’ll run 94mph.
