We just have to give props to a build of this type because this guy did nearly everything on this truck himself and the best part is that he actually did all of it for the first time, as he puts it, his first welds in his life were to build the bender in order to make the roll cage for this truck.
You know that he has learnt everything the hard way and this makes this truck extra special in his eyes because there is rarely any part of the vehicle that did not go thru his hands at one point.
So when it was time for him to step up and show what this bad boy can do, you know he was extremely excited and once he started putting down sub 10 second runs, well that is all the props that he needs.
Let him tell you more about this vehicle and see it in action as he sends it down the track in the video bellow.
