Underhood remains one of the few pieces from Rob and Bambi's old mud truck-the big-block 460 Ford. Sucking in through a 750 Holley double pumper, this vigorous V-8 has no problem launching the little truck to big air. Pushing the engine rearward in the frame helps keep the weight balanced, thus preventing the front end from diving into deep holes on the muddy racetrack. Plastic panels protect the engine bay from the majority of mud infestation.
