I should take a pic of the same truck with boosts so you can see how ridiculous it looks.

Well, we were scheduled to shoot video yesterday, rain date today. Both scrubbed due to nasty weather. I have booked a Lamborghini to race/duel with on a racetrack for the video. I am not claiming we can beat it, especially in the corners ( don't want to see it up on two wheels arab riding) just to get the point across that its quick. Its entertainment, of course for promotional purposes.

No one in my neighborhood owns a Corvette. Good idea though, I am sure it would not be too hard to find someone who wants to show off their car in a video.

And a Justin Bieber look-alike I'd assume?

I'll volunteer with my Rover SD1. The 3.5l RV8 is quite the powerhouse, so your Defender will be no match.

Yeah: Do a Bieber, rent a Lamborghini!

But make sure you take it off road!

That is an awesome vehicle. I really enjoy looking at your builds, they are built very classily and drivable. I would also to see some more info about putting the LS in, i have a spare LS2 sitting in the garage...

That is wicked awesome! Come on Purists, you gotta get all jazzed on that. Perhaps we should disconnect the front driveshaft for the video we are shooting.
Thanks for sharing

Re: Specs and Tech on Build.

I started this thread in the chit chat section and not the tech section of this site purposefully.
It has cost us a giant heap load of money to R&D this product. Our company cannot share publicly the details of how and what has been done.
If I was doing it in my garage on my one and only I would have no problem sharing information. But we have 8 employees and families that rely on what we do. This is our livelihood and how we feed our families. I hope you can all appreciate that. Sorry.

There is always lots to see on our site (soon to have a major overhaul) and our Himalaya4x4 Facebook page.
