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

Bob Denman 05-30-2018 08:39 PM

You've got to admit: that was a REALLY close finish... :thumb:

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:

You want me to get in trouble with the DW, don't you? :D

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!!!

:D That DOES almost look like it could be "too much" fun... :lol: :thumb:

Bob Denman 05-30-2018 11:24 PM

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

mountainsam 05-30-2018 11:47 PM

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. :lol:

Bob Denman 05-31-2018 12:03 AM

Bracket racing; based upon the power to weight ratios? :thumb:

Tearstone 05-31-2018 12:39 AM

What kind of potential could we get out of a N/A upgrades?

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!

Bob Denman 05-31-2018 08:27 PM

Pricey: but still pretty darn tough! :thumb:

Muggs 05-31-2018 08:47 PM

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.

Bob Denman 05-31-2018 11:28 PM

:D Waitin' to see the videos... :thumb:
