Absolutely love these trucks and was looking for some pics/videos. I know Gene has one, but I haven't been able to find pics/videos of it. Can anyone point me in the direction of finding some please?

EDIT:

Found pics of it in the photo gallery and the video of it making history with the 11.519 @ 119.26 mph.

Are there a lot more Stroked Lightnings out there? Any other pictures/videos that you guys could point me to please?

why would you want pics of that p.o.s. when you could have pics of my real truck. stroked lightning's a dyno queen and everybody knows it.:rofll: :rofll: j/k gene and brian c. but seriously 4wd's look a lot better!

Yea but those 4x4's are slow :yay: :not_ripe: :not_ripe: :yay:

I built the one and only Stroked Lightning but have shortened a few other trucks for some friends of mine. There are some more pics and vids at www.northtexaspowerstrokes.com . I might be able to bring it to the meeting at the lake on August 20th.

There is only 1 Stroked Lightning.
Brian C ownes it, Gene made and drives it and SoCAPS named it. It is a one of a kind truck. I like it too...

I think the truck is an absolute beauty!

I remember DPM having a Stroked Lightning in it once, but didn't think it was the same as Brian C's. After carefully reading the article and seeing the truck again, it makes sense.

That site you gave me is giving me all kind of errors and not wanting open pages. :confused:

Thanks for the help guys!

4x4's sure launch better.

Well maybe if you think your truck launches so much faster, I bet Gene will be more then willing to give a friendly Ford on Ford race to see how fast you truck really is? That is why Gene and the Lighting is so liked, He does not brag..:slap:

we'll be racing soon enough. and yes, he does brag. you obviosly haven't spent much time with him. j/k i just like taking stabs at him whenever possible. but we will be racing shortly, i promise. and he'll win, but not by much.

You just have to beat a 1.61 60' time with that big old 4x4 :rofll: :rofll:

It should be a fun race Mike , you could win if I break or let you win :not_ripe: :not_ripe:

i guarantee i run lower than an 11.51 within 6 months. sorry gene, but you're going down! it will suck losing to an outdated 7.3 for a second time but you've got to be humbled at some point.:yay:

So what is it you are going to be doing to your truck to get it below 11.51? What is your best time to date?

top secret. if i told you i'd have to... you know. and my fastest time is 13.4 w/ a blown injector cup near the end of the track. also in redding i laid down 13.9 on fuel and blew an intercooler boot before the 3/4 mark at 52lbs of boost. i haven't done nothing yet, but i promise i'm coming.sooner than later. i love you uncle gene!

p.s. superD- who's bragging? gene and I are having a friendly game of ribbing.

Don't forget about "Stroked Thunder"!! It is the 4X4 Brother of "Stroked Lightning". We will have to wait and see what John comes up with on that truck. We all know that thunder follows lightning. :D

I think it has been for sale about 3 or 4 times now. It seems like everytime it is for sale, he does something trick to it and decides to keep it. I guess he hasn't played with the truck for awhile and wants to sell it again. :smash: I know I wish I could buy it.

I think it would make a cool tow rig for Stroked Lightning :evil: :evil:

I know this is an old thread, but how much would Stroked Lightning go for? That truck is simply amazing! No, I don't have enough money to buy it, but man what I'd do to have that truck, haha.

An arm & a leg, a pile of cash, some freebies, and most of all, one hell of a fabricator.
