If you happen to be driving a Top Fuel dragster or Funny Car, yes. They are grip-limited all they way down the track. One could argue they have too little traction, not too much horsepower. ;-) They have just a little more horsepower than needed to spin the tires at 300+ MPH, 1000 feet away from where they started. That let's them use every bit of grip available to them for acceleration. So that would make 8000 HP just enough, not too much. ;-) But I understand your point. --PeterPS - Are they allowed to use computers to control the clutch slip, or is that all mechanical and/or driver?
