Could you imagine if they put a predator in an explorer? At the very least it'd probably be called the explorer svt, but I think just calling it the predator would be enough for me.

That pretty cool! I hadn’t heard about that one. It’s funny that they put 8 people in it and went down the drag strip! :LOL:
If that story is indeed true, then the test mule they were having fun with taking 8 bodies down the track was quite a bit hotter than the stock 360hp. No way you dump 7 additional adults in the truck, and still run in the 13's. This coming from having daily-driven a 2000 Lightning for 5 years, and owning another one currently.

It probably had excellent traction. But yeah, unless they were all petite women, that's a stretch.

I remember being at the MCA 25th Anniversary show at the dragway in Commerce GA, it was 2001, and there was a guy there with a 7.3L Powerstroke 4WD Excursion that had ALL of the diesel tricks done to it, and he was packing it full of anyone who wanted to go along for the ride, 8-9 passengers on some passes, running flippin' low 13's, and blowing the doors off of classic Shelbys and big block Mach 1's. With the windows down, and passengers pumping their fists out the windows. It was a hilarious circus!
