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.

Another SBC 86 Mustang Coupe Update
Since the last update I have Rebuilt the trans, hooked up the Nitrous, timing retard and 2 step. I have put
Hotchkis Rear control arms on the rear and all of the bushings crumbled.I
have been fighting a fuel pressure issue and cannot find the problem, so
that will call for a complete fuel system upgrade. While im under there i
will go ahead and pull the rear end out and weld the torque boxes up and
brace them, weld in subframe connectors and get some solid control arms.
When all of that is done I can then start beating the shit out of it and
having some fun with it.
Tim's 1994 5.3 S10 First Startup
this is a truck i started putting together 2 weeks ago (3-2-11) and today
(3-13-11) it fired up for the first time. this is a budget build, this will
be a daily driver, work truck, not a race truck ........... yet. THIS IS
NOT MY TRUCK, its my good friend Tim's truck. It has a 2002 L59 5.3L and
4L60 trans, which we found out is no good, FML. since this is a junkyard
build the pullout is still under warranty and ill get another trans monday.
there are no performance mods done to anything, its just a stock engine and
