Well, that's overstating it just a bit, but yeah it was fun.



I got the flight OPS guy in trouble once because I had him put me on the flight board for flying to Banja Luka for ice cream. The aviation commander didn't exactly see the humor in it the same as we did.

In all seriousness, the fastest I have been was 145 indicated in my 89 Maxima. How accurate that was, I have no idea. That was going eastbound on the I90 express lane outta Seattle at 3am.

Geez, not a one of you can actually appreciate the incongruity of the situation; namely, a 200+mph truck.

Then again, based on the quality of snipes and comments, I have to conclude the collective average IQ of this place has hit single digits.

Eh, idgaf, y'all don't like my content, don't click the post. Or permaban me, just as long as I get a fucking refund on my "donation".

It was cooler when Banks was doing it with diesel; that at least was novel. If it's tube chassis then, newsflash, there's not much incongruity because it's not much of a damn truck.

I like the rocket car at 1:15 here. The ramp alone is pretty impressive but the car looks like it has a real rocket. Pretty hard-core.

Or as fast as he went on 2/18 In Las Vegas: 6.64/212mph!!

Fuck that thang can FLY!!


 cue up the Tex h8, 'cuz you bitches are so jealous  

You want us to be jealous of a drag truck which isn't even yours?

No thanks and no, lol



I'd like to go for a run in something like that as a fun experience, but honestly could give a shit about owning it. I'd have to tow it out to Fontana, basically the only place near me where i can do anything with it, then race some old rich guy in his version of the same thing.

And by race i mean hold a pedal down and make sure I'm still pointing straight.

Can it go to Best Buy and pick up a refrigerator? Can a person use it to help a buddy move a couch? Can you throw a keg and a BBQ pit in the back and take it to a tailgate party? Could you fill the bed with hay and hook up a horse trailer to it?


It would only be impressive if it were street legal and could still haul a boat to the lake. It's lost all functionality expected of a truck so now it's just a dragster shaped like a truck.
