Driving on the freeway was a trip. Some of the staff took turns driving it back and forth to work, around town, and out at night, to get a real feel for what it was like living on 47-inch tires.
The bumpsteer and looseness in the steering was hugely accentuated with such a big bias ply tire, making it a little funky to drive. The axles were geared to 5.13, and the built 401ci V-8 had enough power to keep it at Southern California freeway speeds. There was more than enough power to take off from stoplights and step out in front of the rest of traffic around town, but the giant tires would wrap the rear suspension easily and the tires would rub the fenderwells. We'll solve that issue in the near future.
No matter what, it was a ton of fun driving something that made tractor-trailers look sort of smaller.
