Shockwave Jet Truck

If you’ve never heard of Shockwave, it’s basically an extremely fast truck that currently holds the world record for jet-powered full-sized trucks at 376mph. Power comes from three Pratt & Whitney J34-48 jets that generate 35,000+ horsepower, which allow it to complete the quarter-mile in a blistering 6.63 seconds. “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. In order to bring this beast of a truck to stop they have made use of two 16″ Military Parachutes (ring slot) which are capable of providing an impact of about -9G,” said Chris Darnell, son of the vehicle’s owner.
