Trophy Truck vs. Boss 302 Mustang

Insane video of a trophy truck being run at a dragstrip and then a race track. It is incredible that the massive truck with a few feet of suspension travel kept up with a track-focused muscle car. And then there's the sound it makes! :hitit:

What's with the Bullet Proof Diesel sticker on the side, and no diesel engine? I was actually expecting to see a diesel in it.

 

Sponsor. Just like the CAT sponsored NASCAR guy doesn't have one of their motors. :lol:

No matter how much power a diesel made, it would never handle as well, be as light or have as good throttle response. Not bashing- just the overlooking of the diesel downfalls gets to me sometimes!

 

 

Really? Guess Audi better get that diesel out of their winning LeMans car and go back to gas then. It was only a v6 as well.

Gas is the predominant race engine for a reason.

I notice they didn't really show the Mustang run so that one might evaluate how good a driver was driving it and how hard it was pushed.

 

 

 

Well the truck did it in 1.53. Below is a link to all-time records at the track in mostly dedicated race cars by track drivers.

I'd say since he's about 10 seconds off an RX-7 race car that's damn impressive.

Yes and the street Mustang only being 5 seconds off is also impressive.

id kill to drive that trophy truck.. and its not surprising that its almost as fast as a mustang, its a purpose built truck meant to go fast and it has a built 442 and top of the line suspension components and the mustang is just a mustang, a daily driver.
