A 10-Ton Gracefully Jumps Over Snow Banks
June 16th, 2017
The Kamaz 4326 is sponsored by Red Bull and is arguably one of craziest racing vehicles we’ve seen. The 10-ton truck has a 1,000-horsepower, 16.2-liter turbo-diesel V8, 16 forward gears, and enough torque to tear down a building. So you would think moving quick, far jumps and other stunts wouldn't be its thing. But after winning the Dakar Rally, the truck is back for some high-flying snow-filled action and it has something to prove.
Thankfully, Red Bull released a promotional video of the Kamaz being driven by the 2013 Dakar Rally winner through snow-covered Russia. And this was only for some shakedown testing. For the truck, that means a whole lot of airtime and a whole lot of fun for the driver. The jumps are possible thanks to the truck's 11.8 inches of suspension travel and huge spiked ice tires. It's able to launch off snow jumps and drift around frozen corners with ease and the surprising amount of agility. And yeah, this video is basically an ad for Red Bull, but it's just too cool not to watch. You can check out the whole thing on PowerNationTV.com
Starting at 9am this Sunday, the Engine Power guys add over 250 horsepower to the Rislone Mustang. Plus a new sound out of the exhaust, and a gearbox to handle it all.
Then this 1963 Chevy C10 is Katie’s featured ride on PowerNation. She’ll be joined by one of the builders on the project, Nick Roberts from Nichols Paint & Fab. The owners gave the team a truck in decent shape and after a yearlong build this is what they did. Everything has been handmade from the inner fenders to the unique front end that held four headlights and now has just two with Harley Day Markers. It’s got a 5.3 liter making about 400 horsepower. Plus Marc drops by to talk about the Power Stop Ultimate Mustang he and Tommy are creating with drift champion Vaughn Gittin, Jr. And this is a pony car you can enter to win on our website. It’s a full block so make sure you join us.
