The Drag race results-(Mahindra Thar vs Toyota Fortuner Drag Race)

While in drag race the Fortuner won fair and clear no doubt , as is evident by the numbers above. The Car infomania channel pitted both the cars several times in different modes etc but the Fortuner never gave up its lead. The Thar was quick to launch being a smaller and light car but as soon as the Fortuner came into its power band the Thar couldn’t do anything to maintain a proper Lead. The reason it was such a close competition was because both the cars have a similar torque band and achieve their peak torque down low at about 1500 – 1600 rpm.

Also if proved as this video once published can ,that the owner was in a pursuit of testing the top speed or trying to do a timed run in case of an accident the insurers might turn hesitant to help.
