Shockwave the Jet Truck is Terrifying and Amazing, All at Once
Imagine taking a Ford Ranger, stuffing its engine bay with the new Power Stroke V8…then adding a silo’s worth of nitrous to it. It’s easy to imagine how to overpower such a small truck, but how do you do that with a semi? The answer is: Shockwave the Jet Truck.
Yes, I said, “Jet.” The 7,000-pound creation uses a 36,000-horsepower jet engine to make onlookers, such as those at the 2014 Duluth Air Show, believe they’re living in a crazy, hyperbolic alternate reality in which exhaust takes the form of hellfire instead of vapor or smoke.
You can watch Shockwave blast its way to jaw-dropping speeds in the video below.
