Drive it like You Stole It: Jet Powered Semi Truck

030906-4459K-060Have you ever been driving down the freeway and had a semi fly past you at about twice the speed limit. The wind always rocks your car and any women along for the ride gasp and grab for that dashboard like they’re about to be sucked under the truck.

Well, what would you think of a truck that could pass you doing 376 mph. That might elicit slightly more than the average amount of road rage. Neal Darnell’s jet powered truck he named Shockwave can do that. you wouldn’t have to worry so much about the rage is causes when he passes you going so fast. You just have to survive the crashes of the crappy drivers around you.

Mr Darnell’s son Chris Darnell, 31, who also drives Shockwave said: “On acceleration, the driver experiences about 6G. We then stop this beast using two 16-inch ring slot military parachutes, which produce an impact of up to negative 9G. It is some ride.”
