The Difference Between 850 and 10,000 Horsepower

Don't blink, or you might miss it.

You would think a 10,000 horsepower funny car drag racer would be fast. But only when you put it up against an 850 horsepower trophy truck offroader do you realize how unearthly fast it actually is 

This whole comparo was set up as part of a seat swap between professional baritone/desert racer Bryce Menzies and human projectile/drag racer Cruz Pedregon. Both tried out each others sort of demo cars and both did pretty well. Here’s the video and it’s pretty great:

But the best part is when Menzies and Pedregon face off on the drag strip in their pro cars, trophy truck versus funny car.

Menzies was pulling 10.5s, so they gave him a six second head start against Pedregon.
