Driving a Freaky Chevy C10 Truck With Huge Tires!!

Chevy C10 Truck With Huge Tires!!

“Believe me I’m a mechanic,” – words which describe this guy perfectly!! And one more prove that Redneck imagination has no limits. Those “Partners” on the truck are doing improvements and tune up their truck in very bizarre way. In other words – stock trucks are for pussies.

Redneck tuning is far-far away from logic and engineering.

However, this guy just set a World Record in must Bizzare Redneck Tuning. Instead of restoring this Classic Chevy C10, or improving comfort inside, No, he put huge tires on the rear axle to make the impossible to drive truck!

And when I say huge, I mean it. They have the same height as whole Truck.

One important notice is, that despite of all those redneck show-off features, owner improved the engine, setting a huge turbo. Moreover, to mount those huge sushis frame and axle improvement were mandatory.

Finally, we’re pretty sure, that this truck is impossible to drive in day-by-day routine, but to show-off a little, why not?

1970 F-100 SMOKING a Tuned 2011 Silverado a Couple of Times

Tuned 2011 Silverado Vs 1970 F100

Appearances, as they say, aren’t everything.  This 1970 F-100 is certainly proof of that, smoking a tuned 2011 Silverado a couple of times over in spite of its homely appearance.  The old Ford, proclaimed to be “stock” (winky face), proves to have something other than a stock motor under the hood as it easily handles the Chevy in a series of rolling start drag races.

Ford/F-100 has a supercharged 302 providing motivation, but no other details are provided.

It certainly looks like an unassuming old farm truck, making it a perfect sleeper.  The Silverado has long tube headers, an aftermarket intake, and a tune on its factory small block.

The Ford simply makes mincemeat of the Chevy, pulling out several car bus lengths by the time it’s all over.

However, minus a little driver error in the middle, there’s no doubt that the old Ford dominates the modern Chevy this time around.
