I would seriously doubt any trophy truck makes 750-800 at the tire. I was thinking somewhere around 500 to the tire.

Some of the top Trophy Truck teams are making some serious horsepower numbers and 750 hp at the wheels wouldn't be all that off. It's been known that some are making 850 hp and some of the recent (now defunct :mad:) Corr series trucks were pumping 900 horses. You get someone like Robby Gordon who's truck is almost absolutely making those top power numbers of 900 hp at the flywheel minus the usual 20% at the wheels you end with 720 horses.

I can't tell you the numbers on their truck. I can tell you that a trophy truck that makes around 750hp on the engine dyno, lays down around 480 to the tire on our dyno. Most chassis Dynos read different, especially if they specialize in fast and the furious type of cars!!! Hahahaha!!!

If this helps, our truck has seen 535 hp to the rear wheels on the chassis dyno at Kroyer's shop. We dyno the truck up there the day before qualifying for every race, and that is the highest HP #'s my guys have seen.

there isn't a TT out there that puts 700 to the ground. It would not last

Looks like i was pretty close with my 500 hp to the tire guess then. Figured these trucks lose around 30-35 percent through the drivetrain with an automatic.

you are in the ballpark. The most a trophy truck consistently put down is @ 550 on our dyno. The lowest one is around 400. Most are around the 460 mark. Can't say who's trucks make what though.
That's one big advantage when bringing your car to us. We have a lot of data on different set ups, so we are able to help teams improve their set up as well.

...even more lost if the TT runs a V-drive.
