Muscle Truck vs. Baja Bug! 1974 Chevy C10 Battles Fred's Volkswagen Baja Bug - Roadkill Ep. 28
Remember the drag racing '74 Chevy Muscle Truck from Roadkill Episode 18?
It's back, but with a twist: it's gonna become a true dual-sport ride for
surf and turf, shedding its drag slicks for Super Swamper Boggers and
hitting the sand dunes...hard! And to prove that a lowered, two-wheel-drive
pickup can dominate the dunes, Freiburger and Finnegan set up a shootout
with Fred Williams from the Dirt Every Day series on the Motor Trend
channel. Fred brought out his '69 VW Baja Bug from DED Episode 23 and went
head to head with the Muscle Truck on the beach at Pismo, California.
The Roadkill/HOT ROD Magazine Muscle Truck is a '74 Chevy C10 shortbed,
stepside, with a GM LS6 crate engine (like the all-aluminum V8 found in a
C6 ZO6 Corvette). It's stock other than a small crane cam, midlength
headers, and a new addition for this episode: MSD's Atomic EFI (the truck
used to run a carburetor). The Atomic setup is atop a BBK intake manifold,
and uses a stock LS1 throttle body. That legendary Exhaust sound comes
from 3-inch pipe with 4-inch Dynomax Bullet race mufflers.
The truck's transmission is a JW turbo
400 backed by a Gear Vendors over/underdrive unit. And it really needs
overdrive because the Ford 9-inch rear carries 5.13 gears and a spool. The
suspension features dropped spindles and Ridetech Strong Arms and air bags
up front. In the rear, two leaves were removed from the stock spring packs,
they were flipped under the axle, and traction is delivered by Caltrac's
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
Yeti Concept Truck
Master fabricator Rex Bailey used the Samson™ CNC machine to build the
"Yeti" (the abominable snowman), a monster truck that drives through snow
more than 3 feet deep. The 76-inch tractor tires, Unimog portal axles, and
modified Dodge 3500 Cummins diesel truck are all joined together by
custom-designed plates that Rex made with the machine.
Ford EcoBoost takes on Toyota, Chevy & the Ike Gauntlet Mashup Towing Test ( Episode 2 )
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2013 Ford F-150 EcoBoost Pickup is built to tow. But is it better
than the Toyota Tundra and the brand new Chevy Silverado? We decided to
find out by putting all three pickups up against each other in a Mega
Mashup by having them tow the old Lincoln Continental Mark V Diamond in the
Rough up one of the steepest and highest American Highways. From Dillion,
Colorado to the Eisenhower Tunnel U.S. I-70 climbs 8 miles to a maximum
elevation of 11,158 feet or 3,401 meters. That's enough elevation and grade
to test the most powerful of pickups. Is the Ford F-150 EcoBoost up to the task of towing a over 7,000
pounds up to the top of the tunnel?
In this second TFLtruck Ike Gauntlet video review we test the truck up the
Ike Gauntlet see how fast it will tow over 7,000 pounds of old American
Luxury car 8 miles up a 7 percent grade to the Eisenhower tunnel with the
help of our friend Kent from ( http://www.MrTruck.com ).
