    They take a leftover truck from last year (2018), and add a supercharger for about $10K.
    It's 2 wheel drive with an aluminum body.

    I think it would be a challenge to put that kind of horsepower to the pavement in a rear wheel drive truck.

    Very true. There's a video of it on YouTube with a guy driving one that has four wheel drive. It just fries the tires all the way up to about 60 no matter what he does when he's punching it. Then he locks it into four-wheel drive and the thing takes off like a scalded dog.

    About 4500 lb vehicle possibly more they seem to keep getting heavier.
    Should run 11 flat with proper gearing and traction.
    You need $40K to run 11's ?

    Well in all fairness it is more than a drag vehicle it is a truck and can haul the load and the boat.

    Having been buying trucks over the last 15 years, You don’t get much of a truck for $40k. I can imagine it would have a little up and go, but severely lack in the option arena. That SC set-up is easy $7-10k, so that truck has to be pretty bare bones model.
    Jeff, there always someone who post they think $40k is a lot of money for a 11 sec vehicle lol...I have seen them, a shell, a seat and a drivetrain.
