2001 Chevy S-10 580cid (1350hp) Prostock Drag Racing - Initial Testing
This video covers the initial passes and testing of our ProStock truck. The
engine was a 580cid Steve Schmidt Prostock motor and we ran a glide trans
to save on maintenance. This combination is capable of 6s @ 200+mph with a
5-speed manual trans.

Double Down--Most Powerful Pro-Stock Semi
This is the infamous Peterbilt semi known as "Double Down", powered by a
Caterpillar 3406 bored to around 1000 cubic inches. It runs a single turbocharger and produces somehwere around
3000hp. Jerry Walker routinely runs this truck in the super-stock class,
which allows up to 4 turbochargers, and
wins, leaving a lot of guys scratching their heads....This was at Pontiac,
IL on Sept 4, 2011. Here it pulled 351 feet, and was traveling around 40
mph at the 300' mark. Legendary Art Downs announcing.
