16V92 making 4500 HP at 3500 rpm

Can't say how long it would last in a bus but in the mean time look out.

Proof positive how bullet proof reliable the Allison HT740 is. All that black smoke is wasted fuel-or potential horsepower. Need bigger, or higher boost. Good Luck, TomC

I am prejudiced, but the ultimate land speed truck was the Phoenix.  It set the unlimited record at 272.685 in 2003 and the record still stands.

I put a tribute page together about that truck and the amazing/fun folks involved:

http://www.beltguy.com/Phoenix_LSR_Truck/The%20Phoenix%20LSR%20Truck.htm

I got to know the folks pretty well.  Indeed, the owner of the push truck I document gave me a very detailed lesson on running the rack right on the salt!!!

Did anyone else notice how much the hood of the truck deflected and deformed under the wind pressure? You can see it letting up after he pulls the chute and slows down!!! Wowzers..

Hey Ned,

You have the smoke right, you just need Ken to set the carburetors!  Huggy can keep up with that guy.
