What kind of engines do these trucks use? I'm guessing just a big block V8 with enough torque to twist a house apart, but, anyone find some numbers? I checked on gravedigger.com .. nothing..

Posted by: PBB Apr 11 2006, 11:01 AM

Most are supercharged big-block V8s (~1500 bhp) with a modifed automatic drag-racing transmissions.

Here's specs on one: http://www.blackstallion4x4.com/specs.html

Quite interesting, indeed tongue.gif

Also, don't the drivers stand up inside the cabs, not sit down, for better visibility?

Posted by: PBB Apr 11 2006, 11:30 AM

Nope, the frame is built up under the body so despite the massive lift the drivers sit normal to the windshield.

I want one to Autocross in. oh.gif

Also, you can independently steer the rear and front wheels.

Honestly, as redneck as the drivers come off as they're incredibly skilled and talented.

They don't talk slow... they talk fast with an extreemly... and I mean EXTREMELY thick southern accent.
