Shockwave Fastest Truck

Shockwave is currently the world’s fastest truck, and by a longshot. Powered by three Pratt & Whitney J34-48 jet turbines, which were sourced from a U.S. Navy trainer jet called the T-2 Buckeye, this 4-ton Peterbilt Semi generates an incredible 36,000-horsepower, which is good for a quarter mile time of just 6.5-seconds, topping out at 400mph. To make sure it doesn’t run out of fuel on the runway, it can hold a whopping 190 gallons of petrol, and burns 180-gallons per performance. Owner Neal Darnell’s son Chris, 31, said: “The added afterburners double the horsepower and thrust, so Shockwave literally has six times the power of the jet airplane these engines came in. On acceleration, the driver experiences about 6G. We then stop this beast using two 16in ring slot military parachutes, which produce an impact of up to negative 9G. It is some ride.” Click here to view the first image in today’s viral picture gallery. Continue reading for the five most popular viral videos today, including one of
