NHRA Webisode 9

Our soldiers work under the expectations of being the best in the world every day.

Each time the U.S. Army top fuel dragster runs down the track we have to completely disassemble the engine and reassemble it in a short amount of time. It takes a very highly trained efficient and effective crew to do this. When it comes to mechanical repairs, some of the best in the world are in the U.S. Army. Soldiers understand that every second matters and great training combined with great teamwork gets the job done fast and the job done right.
When we get back from a run with the U.S. Army top fuel dragster we pull the car into the pit area, jack it up and the team immediately goes to work on disassembly. The first thing we take off is the manifold, blower and injector. At the same time the valve covers are coming off, which allows the cylinder head specialist to start unbulking the cylinder heads. Once we get the cylinder heads off we're down to the short block of the engine.
There's a person underneath, called the bottom end guy, he's underneath there and he's taking the rods and pistons loose so we can take the rods and pistons out of the engine. We put new sleeves in it and then the engine's ready to go back together. It's a very well timed out event for us to do it in the 30 minutes it takes us to do it. The training that the members of the U.S. Army Racing Team received allows them to work in synch to put together one of the fastest cars in the NHRA.
Our soldiers work under the expectations of being the best in the world every day. Soldier mechanics are no exception, as they train to be the best working faster, smarter, and better than any other. By utilizing their powerful training and working together, soldiers accomplish things that impress even the best teams in the world like ours here at the U.S. Army Top Fuel racing.
