If I remember right there was already a faster gas powered truck then our Sidewinder Dakota. I'm just going from memory but i belive that last year, using a NASCAR spec engine, it beat our speed but I don't remember by how much. I'll see if I can dig up that info. We do still have the worlds fastest diesel truck though. It's REALLY hard to break records on the salt and my hat goes off to the Jesel team. Good job guys!:D

IIRC the diesel truck record is still held by the Phoenix, which went 270+ MPH with a 5000HP diesel engine.

It wasn't a Dodge, nor a Cummins. It was an International with a Detroit Diesel.

PS - As far as "pickups" go, an SRT-10 ain't really a pickup when it's stock, it has no tow rating. And the V-8 Dodge "NASCAR" engine is not production based either, like a Cummins or Powerstoke land speed engine is.

No it doesn't.


That jesel motor is one nasty sob. I got to take a look at it at the Maxton Mile a while back when it was N/A... that thing doesn't mess around.



They were swaping the same motor into the truck and a busch car. Would drop on a sheetmetal manifold with dual carbs as well.

The Manual Transmission SRT-10 will void it's warranty if you put a trailer hitch on it.

The Automatic? It's a poor joke that just proves Dodge cannot make a gasoline truck that gets decent fuel mileage even if it's slow.

The Jesel motor's engine block was never offered in a production car or truck by any manufacturer.

Nor were any other parts that come to mind.

Basically a One-Off Race Engine competing in a production truck class. Which... Lacks Class.
