Always best to have a plan B while you wait for plan A to complete.

Would be neat if the VSC (vehicle stability control) was working too, not that I expect Hoopie to drive like a lunatic in that incredible truck.

Mine engaged once when I sharply swerved to avoid a crate in the middle of my lane on the highway, and then yanked the wheel back to avoid hitting the concrete barrier that keeps cars from going off the bridge. I would have been able to recover the fishtail, but VSC quickly stamped it out with just 2 small steering inputs.

Nice truck would never have thought to make a hybrid truck out of a Prius.

Your screaming down the road with 114 hp and 82 ft-lbs of TORQUE.

Saw this truck not a Chevy but a 40s Ford F1.

1200 WHP and 2000 ft-lbs TORQUE. Cummins Diesel powered. Owner claims it will get 30MPG WHY.



Also my dad is building a Cummins 4bt Powered 1939 Dodge panel truck. Now I am very curious what kind of MPG you get with your truck.

30 MPG out of a 2007 F-250 with the 4BT is doable, but I'm not sure if that would be too realistic for an wildly-tuned 6BT.

I don't think so. I still need to finish a bunch before I know what it's really capable of. I have driven 70mph on the highway and it drives great.
