Natural High, a Rocket-Powered Funny Car, is one of the safest, most dependable vehicles ever to traverse the Quarter Mile. The system used in Natural High is a true liquid monopropellant engine using 90 percent hydrogen peroxide for fuel. This engine, with no moving parts, generates 5,000 lbs of thrust equivalent to 10,000 horsepower and achieves maximum power in one-tenth of a second. The exhaust gas is distilled water and oxygen and is 100 percent pollution-free.
