Fury Road inspired kit bash

Postby Wozza » Thu Jan 28, 2016 6:09 am

I was going through my box of car/truck parts the other day and I had a Allison V12 engine and thought I can make something nuts with this, so I dug up a old mack truck chassie and a 32 ford body and started to get something together.

I know it has a blower on the front but why not two more on top...

Thanks for the offer, but wheels I was going to use are in the photo and are tank like, think we are on the same wavelength.
They need to be big enough to get over the disk brakes and calipers I'm going to use which i'm working on now.
But thanks again for the offer, really nice of you. The engine I think I'll change to a truck air filter the one on it seems a little small
for the amount of air that thing would suck for the primary fuel system...
