Theme Tuesdays: Trucks Being Awesome In Car Like Settings

3

Some people seem to think that trucks are only really good for hauling around couches, track cars, dirt bikes, debris, and people.

These same people often also believe that trucks should stay stock, never compete in anything on road, and should never be pretty as that “defeats the purpose of a truck”.

That’s boring, trucks are awesome and in the right hands are quite capable of doing a myriad of things outside of the general lugging stuff around and frolicking in the dirt.

Today’s Theme Tuesday is a salute to just a small sampling of the awesome trucks that exist on autocross tracks and drift courses around the world.

Every time I went to DMCC Mosport I hoped this truck would make it but he never did. Looks like I'll have to travel to Quebec to see it

  1. The No Limit comes from No Limit Engineering. They build high performance chassis’ for older model trucks. Both (I believe) trucks have been featured in Street Trucks magazine. Both are amazing pieces of machinery!
