Aside from sled pulling, can't say I've seen a semi do a launch before while hauling a full load at the same time! Pretty crazy, I'll say, and for a moment there it appeared the frame was going to check out!

That's awesome, Eric! It looks like you won!! :2th:

Those Detroits sound great, I especially like the F250 conversion. That's pretty cool.

Austen, got to wonder how overpowered that p/u is!! I think it was smoking the tires across those intersections!? All that torque in a tiny package!!
Wonder if that engine would fit in a guy I knows Toyota p/u??? ;) HINT!!!!! :)

lol, Toyota pickups are pretty bullet proof but I think a cast iron Detroit would break one in half, lol.

Smitty, I was going by sound of engine!! Sounded like it broke traction, not top fuel burnout style!! :)
I can get my car to sound like it is spinning ,but no evidence on road or smoke!
Not sure of course with this truck in video, just sounded like it to me!

Would wake you when he needed to haul at 3AM!!
My neighbor drives his work 18 wheeler home at times. A supped up rig with loud pipes. He tries so hard to go by quiet at 3 or so. Every once in a while I will be up and look when he comes. He runs with just parking lights until he clears us ,then turns them on, we are last house for a bit! Thing sounds sweet on jake!
