Turbo Rat Rod Truck at I-40 Dragway
Footage from first test-n-tune of 2010. This truck is built on a budget
with a mostly stock small block Chevy. The turbo is a Borg Warner S400. Runs a 6.18 on this
pass, but the truck has run a best of 5.97 in the eighth mile. This could
be the worlds fastest rat rod!
