I wanna see somebody swap on a TT engine and try running the 1/4 mi :)

You need to put VR-4 emblems on it.

The Caterpillar GP40 forklift also uses the 6G72 engine and runs on either gasoline or LP gas, but its rated at only 61hp. I had to order one for work. I definitely would have known how to work on it.

Hell I've seen snowmobiles and 4 wheelers running 12's or less at the dragstrip, why not a forklift :D That'd be funny, a forklift with an Apexi AFC and EBC running 10's, with slicks of course :D

The forklifts here at work already have slicks on em, I guess they're race ready ;)

All the forklifts I've seen have the little 5" rims with little mud tires on them :)

With 61HP, can you do burnouts in that "VR-4"? :D

Too bad they are heavier than our cars

how the hell do they only manage 61 HP out of it? i would think it would be hard to get so little power.

prob decent compression for torque, but real low redline

Might be a stupid question but can you make fork lifts street legal? ;)
Would be pretty damn funny to see a modified fork lift driving down the highway @ 80MPH keeping up with traffic... and if somebody got in your way and was driving too slow just pick em up and put them in another lane :D

:D It's funny enough those few times I've been driving about 20mph down a road and a golf cart pulls up next to me (retired persons subdivision thingy) and takes off, but seeing a guy in a forklift casually doing 80MPH... :D
