Twin turbo stroked hemi engine built by Joe Lewis at LPM in Florida. We did a cage and are getting ready to do some rear suspension work on it. This run is on the stock 20" wheels w/ Nitto's on the back at Orlando Speedworld. "Only" went 139 MPH on this run due to a problem in the trans. on the top end. The run before went the same 9.65 but at 147 mph. The truck weighs just under, or just over 5000 lbs. Pretty badass truck... thought I'd post it up.

Yeah, it's some electronic AWD or 4wd. If it senses slip in the rear it applies more power to the front axle or something like that. Splits it from like 90 /10 to 80 / 20 and more if needed. I dunno, it's kinda weird.

If the trans didn't break (they think that's it, something in 5th gear) it was on a good run. That run was 3 mph quicker to the 1/8th (6.30 @ 118) and then lost 8 MPH on the back and ran the same 9.65.
