    Actually top fuel dragster’s and funny car’s have more horsepower than the tractor pull tractor’s do. They have so much horsepower that there isn’t actually a way to even dyno the engines themselves, they just dyno the blower and then estimate the total power which usually comes to around 12-13 khp. So I’m pretty sure those would be the highest horsepower race vehicle’s and not the tractors.

      Yes top fuel dragsters are 10,000hp+ There are competitors of snoopy 4 that have 12,000 / 13,000hp.. some have 5 x v8 Chevys, others have 4 x top fuel spec v8 hemis, others with 4 x turbine motors.. so on.. some reaching up to 15,000hp

    These places are dangerous in ways people don't realise just warning people here who might go to an event like this you could come away with permanent ear damage and life long tinnitus/chronic ear pain/all sorts of ear conditions that come on from overexposure to extreme loud noise. If you are at a loud event or concert you must *wear ear plugs* because one mistake can seriously ruin your life trust me I speak from experience

    top fuel drag gets more hp, but less torque than that, overall power, only jet top speed cars can rule above all else, some 22.000 to 40.000 hp in those...

    Waste of some good aero engines...these should be saved for the old warbirds. Don't really see the point of this sport anyway, these tractors are all traction limited so they have to make up for it with crazy power....when really a 300hp bulldozer or even a steam engine can pull the sled just as far or further.

    Only 8,000? My friend that lives in Iowa USA has a Unlimited Modified tractor called Screamin' D that has 12,000 hp. Runs on 4 full blown hemis with 3,000 hp each running on alchohol.

      Tractor pulling is just like drag racing, there's several different classes from bone stock antique tractors, to moderately modified farm tractors, all the way up to the unlimited modified class like this and everything in between.
      These unlimited modified tractors are the tractor pulling equivalent of a top fuel dragster in drag racing.

    the Snoopy's aren't the most powerful, but they're hella beautiful rigs. (FYI the most powerful ones run in the Unlimited/Super Modified, making upwards of 13,000 horsepower)

    • Dan W
      Dan W Month ago

      In the unlimited classes, you can add extra weight to compensate for increased HP. Getting the wheels to spin initially is essential for getting the engines up to full power output. Those tires are designed to bite really hard in dirt, and the balance between getting the sled moving and getting those big meats to break loose is critical.😉

    • Elias Shirley
      Elias Shirley Month ago

      Tom Beattie I stand corrected. What exactly is the point of having over 8000 hp in tractor pulling if you just spun the wheels?

    who cares, tractors need tq not hp, they are differant builds.

    • Brian Smith
      Brian Smith Month ago

      Hp is just a calculation of torque and and engine rpm. It's all in the transmission. A 6 liter v8 at 500 hp, and a 5 liter v10 at 500 hp can make the exact same torque at the wheel if the transmission is built to do so.

    • Dan W

      @Tom Beattie True that, but not necessarily on a single engine. Getting an 11,000hp. top fuel engine to stay together for 60 seconds is a lot trickier than getting a pair of Merlins to stay together for a full pulling season!😉
