Three low buck racers that ruled Drag Racing in the Early 60's! Won the 1966 Bakersfield March Meet in a 100 Dragster field!

I don't think the hydrogen peroxide rockets had any turbine blades, at least the 2 that I saw in person didn't.

I saw the Pollution Packer go 314 mph in the quarter while only being on the throttle half way down the track due to not enough room to get it stopped from a higher speed. This was when top fuel cars were going around 225 mph and Jack's Go Kart was going 225.

Hydrogen Peroxide engines need only a catalyst to decompose the fuel into steam.

Can also burn a fuel because of the heat and oxygen produced.

Rocket engines do not have turbine blades to produce thrust.

Looks to be either 3 turbine or jet engines but judging from the racing slick tires I would guess 3 turbine engines of some sort. 😉

If Hydrogen peroxide rocket engines, those would be catalyst baskets.  Holding some material like Nickle powder to decompose the peroxide.  Used in much lower thrust to station keep Satellites, called "Mouse Fart engines" in that employment.

Silver works and potassium peregrinate?

 

I expect that back then there were some not so capable tires expected to stay together above 150. Those slicks may not be driven but rated to 200+?
