been waiting for someone to post about this one. Hot wheels did a pretty good job overall but failed to do some research. They must have used the only photo Ive seen of the truck, which can be seen on Tafts site. They only put headers on the drivers side. If you look very closely in the picture you can see headers on the pass side. Unles Dennis used a 4 cyl engine with a sbc head on it.....:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

i have seen a four banger with a sbc head before at the sand drags at gravelrama, so i would say thats a good possibility

We had noticed the same thing when we bought one. When you look at the picture you can see how it could have happened with people not doing much research. Some poor little 8 year old Guamese kid that builds these probably got beat for it though. :cool:

There are more pics of it in an issue of mudlife magazine i have...even of it crushing cars...not bad for a pair of 1.25 ton dana axles ( i own the same kind of axles ) and plan on putting them in a buggy soon enough....

Well.....ya know.....there's also no front bumper, down bars coming from the cage, the color is wrong - should be red oxide, not gloss red, the upper grille should be black, it has a tube chassis, the lower being chrome - it has a rear engine too! - and the wheels/tires are WAY out of scale. Tires should be about the size of the wheels. Also the tires are solid on mine, they should be pneumatic. :p
