New Engine Mod

I'm thinking about doing this to my MH. Same 6.7 Cummins. MPH might take a hit but I should make good time.

For a diesel it sure got down the track. I was surprised they removed the radiator. And yes I was kidding.

Phil,
Looks like you are really going to need to tighten those seat belts for that one!!

The hard part of doing this Mod is....is after the light turns green regaining steering control.. when the front end comes back down in contact with the road !

Would be sort of like that guy that goes around airshows, etc with a jet-powered semi tractor.



There are probably better videos showcasing the truck, but watch this video all the way thru. I've been a pilot for over 50 years and the guy with the Pitts special and the motorcycle.... Well let's just say he's making the plane do an "unnatural act". Simple brute horsepower is the only way I can figure on how he does it.

Also the guy jumping the motorcycle is a really talented rider. Pay close attention to his flips and rolls.

Anyhow, I've read some on the truck and it uses STOCK tires except they are "shaved" down a small amount (like less than a inch) to reduce the tires weight. Supposedly it hits 300 MPH.

boowho??

I think you really need this engine as it will definitely pull your motor home on any incline you can find.


Scheid Diesel Prostock Pulling Engine


I believe the engine is a just little south of $38,000.
