      Unbelievable that a diesel car can zoom off like this. Keen to understand the modifications these guys must have done to achieve this.

      gigantic tires, three turbos [one turbo each feeding each bank and the third turbo feeding the two turbos]. that wasn't a "run". it was like a gigantic slingshot that catapulted the car forward. like this:



      I highly doubt whether that car has more than one gear in its transmission. all the while you see that thing standing on the line smoking is not for show. it is needed to get those damn turbos to spool up.

      oh, and that thing isn't even running a Ford engine *I think*. it is a Cummins diesel in a Mustang body. they call it the Cumstang.

      One can pretty easily edit out the later 'run' part and call the video 'car on fire smoking up'

      haha, when the vid started off with that sound and smoke machine i actually thought it resembled the sound of a cummins diesel generator, but its crazy how it took off, you got a tyre shredder right there, so much torque...but i don't really understand the analogy, first kill all the bystanders with smoke and then take off when no-ones alive to see your amazing run
