They are also mocking up a SBC paired with a 2 speed powerglide. The engine is being built now. It's a 383 with Dart aluminum heads, H-beam rods, stud and rocker arm girdles etc. Not sure on the cam yet. The rotating assembly was balanced to 8,000 rpm. The engine builder ran the numbers and he estimated between 575 and 600 HP. With the powerglide we're putting together, it should be just downright ignorant

Uhhh just realized hood pins aren't just for looks I was bombing thru a field and came to this large (what I thought was a jump) step. It hit hard. Nearly bottomed my bumps and the hood release (for lack of better term) released Luckily the hood didn't come all the way up. My phone bounced from the cup holder and hit the ceiling lol

Sweet truck, i have always loved pre runners. Kinda wish I had built mine to be one instead of the direction I went with it. Are there any spots to wheel that thing besides having to drive all the way to silver lake?

Thanks. Around here it's fun as hell on dirt roads and urban prerunning (jumping anything and everything) There's a good jump up into a parking lot near my house (maybe 40 feet) I'll have to film it one day.

Frowned upon and seen as being dangerous and anti social to the standards that society has set. Illegal, yes. Dangerous, no. I don't jump any where it could harm anyone and actually the places I jump has been okayed by the owners. The owner filmed it lol

We had an awesome weekend in the dunes. Spent most of the time driving so I didn't get too many videos or pics.


Girlfriend needs to work on timing pictures haha


The truck handled great all weekend.


I like this one a lot.


Spent a lot of time in the whoops. It took them great at 50.


Frame didn't handle it as well and cracked around my upper shock mount on Saturday night so I eased it out of the dunes and just relaxed Sunday before heading home. I just bent it back and welded it up before work today. Another day I'll pull the bed and plate the area. Judging by how it bent, I think limiting straps could have prevented it. Oh well, it's a learning experience and a good excuse to get going on the bed cage.
