    Was on the way to work this morning and couldn't resist getting some video of the truck accelerating. I used the camera strap to hold the camera, so don't worry, was being safe. :rolleyes:

    Now don't go laughing at the crappy steering wheel - I've got a different one that will be installed at some point. And as for having both the 4 on the floor and the 3 on the tree shifter, well, haven't gotten around to yanking the old column in favor of the tilt that I have ready.

    The first clip is larger but ya get to watch the tach. Gets a bit bouncy once I get into 4th gear.

    Video file about 6 megs

    Audio only MP3 file, much smaller

    :D

    Well, not sure how fast it actually is, it is so dang heavy, has to be right at the 6,000 lb mark now that the bbc is installed. I was behind a new Toyota Tacoma last night that had badging showing it had the 5.6 engine. Anyway, he got on it and I was definitely gaining on him. So at least I know I'm faster than one of those. Not bad for a 36 year old truck :p:

    zeroz400 - your about the 5th person who has said the truck sounds "mean" - I've got to get someone to drive it so I can have them get on it going past me. Gotta like a mean soundin' truck.

    Sounds like a great plan. I'll load up the fridge and we can drink some cold one's afterwards. :waytogo:

    Ben - Yep, it definitely feels good putting the foot down. :saweet:
