LOL, LOL is too short so I'll add that I love all racing but stock motorhomes, not so sure about that one.

I found that quite enjoyable. I would be the kind of guy to take my RV to the track.



Imagine what kind of power could be made by adding a twin turbo to the Triton V10. There is so much room under the 'hood' for the install.

A company used to make a supercharger for the V-10, ah here you go:

Looks like fun. With the 4 to 1 1st gear in Vegas it would not be hard to cut a light.

Wife used to run my other tow vehicle (2007 Suburban LT) and there were quite a few nights I was out and could not load car until she was done.

Fun stuff!!!

Jamie,
Thanks for the link about adding a Supercharger: too bad that the information is now 15 years old!

Great material for another reality show. It could be named " NO PARACHUTES REQUIRED ". I'm sure Farm Truck and AZN would compete. I'd kinda like to take on a V10 with my little 3.2.

Bracket racing; based upon the power to weight ratios?

Yeah I don't think anyone makes a V-10 supercharger anymore...sorry. Check e-bay you may find some used ones for sale..

Even when V-10's were in production in the Superduty trucks superchargers were hard to find.

I'm okay with the race, it's the hi revs at the start that would bother me. Those V10's are pricey!

I would not hesitate to try the Vegas though it would probably throw stuff all around in RV. Bracket racing anything is fun. I can be competitive at times and love it when I can be good. I am usually one of the slower cars in the Box class, not so much in No-Box. Sometimes it shows a profit, even when no dough still a great time. I will try to post link to sons car on bumper, I think was wheeliehigher on youtube. My car is vs.snell E-2, a dragster buy chasing me 2nd round after I took out his pal 1st round.
