   I think my estimated top speed on the flats may be alittle understated....3000hp each divided by the accelerated rotation of the earth would make the golden 88mph possible in .02 seconds, giving final all out thrust speed to an educated guess of 550-600mph....or .7mach LOL.

This is going to be an "80/80 truck" 80mph at 80klbs all day long. Looking better and better.

 

3000 horsepower per engine for the salt flats without the trailer - How fast?

Thank you Pawel.

Once again I am thinking with "pictures", and with pieces, LOTS OF PIECES !

Maybe I use some?

Maybe I use ALL?

Maybe it will turn into a MONSTER of a build??

Possibly??

Looks like you really did "go to town" with those engines! What dou you have there - some 3000 hp, right?

In my very humble opinion the rear axles should be regular width (better for the torque!) and the chassis longer, essentially a longer frame - in reality this would also help with avoiding getting the front wheels off the ground.

Good luck with your build and have a nice day!

Thanks, guys Yes

The dual chassis' have been narrowed to fit the cab and begin the chassis' design.

The design and construction will be day-by-day.

Time for more thinking and imagination.

     Cars that are slammed are cool but this is on a whole other level. WOW I like the creativity and the "semi", (small punSmile Burger), rat rod look. If I were to see a real truck chopped I would wanna do a full walk around to take it all in.

Very pleasing to the eye almost like those streamlined trains of the 40s 

 

Never thought of that, but your right.

And I l LOVE those trains of the '40s.

I want to build one someday.

Really impressive.  Interesting to watch you build the chassis.
