    Holy $h!t batman! Thats one fast truck... So the story of how i got to drive it...

    Im out messing with the project and a kid i went to middle school with, and havent seen in a year pulls up in front of my house...in a srt 10. So im talkinmg with him. Last thing i heard about him was he dropped out of high school when he was 15. Well it turns out he and his older brother started a paving company. in just 3 years the kid is making some big freakin bucks. Paid for the truck in cash:eek1: So he tosses me the keys:crazy::D

    Man does this thing go...Took it to a old airstrip by my house and i cant even describe it. it laid down a strip for over a 1/4 mile. Just let off the brake at round 1700 rpm and floor it... Unfortunatley it was a auto but it was still fun... Man i wanna go again!:D

    Some people get lucky...This kid work for it though. Every day he gets out there and bust his ass and makes it happen. Not saying that he didnt have luck on his side but he made it happen, thats for sure.

    Well the srt10 has the dodge viper v10 stuffed inside a single or extended cab pickup body. So yeah they are fast especially at a rolling speed.

    Well it made the slightly modded lt1 that i used to have in my truck feel like a slug (and that was over 300hp + 350ft lbs) prolly closets is my uncles mustang. 95 with a 331 stroker-supercharged. Thye thing hooks awsome, but once you break the tires loose, they stay loose...
