          Drift demos yes, but it will most likely be in the Silver State Classic at some point.

              waste of money in this tough economy

              but that's just me

              It could look so much better, craftsman series meets japan is what I'm expecting when anyone tries to do a drift truck.... but I guess that will never happen.

                Blaze - Can definitely see where your coming from, but as far as building a truck that meets the needs of the parties involved. I think were on the right track. According to MBRP, their is still about another 4-6 months of work to do on the truck, so should be interesting.

                  Personally, I think Colorados aren't the greatest looking trucks, but with a powertrain and chassis like that, I'd suffer. Awesome, a supercharged LS7 and I love thoses camshaft #'s! Any power numbers yet? Two thumbs up!

                      MBRP says they are shooting for 1000 HP! I'll keep you guys updated once we get this thing on a dyno.

                        I love these wheels!! Forgeline has some of the hottest wheels in the world.
