That's the first thing I was thinking too, until I saw the rest of the vid and they explained the rules.

Yes, it does. It appeared that he didn't have much control over it other than "point & stab".

That's no lie. They'd of had to pry mine off the seat with a crowbar.


P.S. I had an old 65' F150 short wheel base truck do something similar to that to me once. Straight axle in the front, mini-spool in the back, no power steering and a built 429/C6 auto made for a wild ride.

If I would have been that other guy, the instant I saw him swing behind me, my foot would have been through the floorboard screaming"aaaaahhhhhh gogogogogogogo!!!!!!!!!"

I often think about getting an old f100 and making it a street machine but funds hinder my thoughts :/ then I get to thinking about dropping my extra 5.0 in my 4wd splash with sleeper exhaust so I can surprise people hehe.

Lack of funds has hindered the building of many a good street rod.


Put the 5.0 in there and it won't just be a Splash anymore. It will be more like a "Cannon Ball!".

Lol, that also requires funds as I still need a 5 speed, drive shafts and figuring out how to wire it up as I would want to keep it EFI. It would be insane though because I've got 4.56 gears in it heh.

Funds = Work nights, weekends, etc., whatever it takes to achieve what you want to do. The wiring harness/ECU from a 5.0 Mustang can be adapted. Those 4.56 gears will make it FUN!
