Yep, you heard that right. And it's still FWD. Pointless? Yes. Fun? Yes. Watch the video on Autoholics!

Now lets hear from the guy on the motorcycle that blows past him at around 1:50 on video and walks away!

Whats he got?

Some years ago a buddy of mine had his VW Golf engine rebuilt to be up in the 400 HP range just before I did my 400 HP Ford 460 V8 rebuild I put in my 1985 F150 pickup.

He said his little engine could beat mine in any contest.

I said no problem. Lets put a 12,000# flatbed behind each of our vehicles and go for a drive and see who's blows up first!

Well I thought that was a good challenge that fit in the "any" category.

For some reason people don't like making bets with me either.
