Re: can you see this

That's awesome... Now does that beast see the street too, or just purpose build drag truck, or other type of off road truck? How many gallons per mile do you get? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: can you see this

i usually drive it to the shop once a week. I was building a tranny for my daily driver and drove it for 2 weeks once the 22 gallon fuel cell lastedall week i drive about 40-50 miles a day to and from work. so about 10 mpg. not bad unless to want to hear the secondarys hissing all the time. it is NOT a drag built truck, i just run the bogs they do when the monster trucks come to town. it tips the scales at 6500lbs. but i can say the HP makes up for the diffrence in the weight.there is a local track i run sometimes and the mud is about 15-20" deep and i will make 180ft pass in about 4-5 sec. i dontr think that is awfully bad considering the mass of the truck. i am trying to get my ducks in a row to try and get up to TEX's bog comming up. I will be up that way for the fall jambo at indy though, so hopefully he will have some racing going on then too.

Turning 44 boggers with a small block Chev, just got to love it.
Nice job of lining up in the ruts too.

Well when they put in the marle mud all you can do is run the runs.You also gotta figure the only thing under that stuff is a concrete floor!

Re: can you see this

Tex,
Let me know on the mudding in the aera. Are you going to Indy? You will most prob find me real close to the Boyce Equipment tent there. Option tire and wheel will also be sharing the tent as evey year. If you got find me, we can hook up and romp on some Missouri mud or hang in indy, the locals have some good stomping ground there too.......
