The Comanche LSR3 was built to set land speed records at Bonneville,El Mirage and Maxton.  It competes in the D/PMP class( 5.0L  Production Mid-Mini Pickup)  

It was constructed over the winter and spring of 2008-2009.  I was at Bonneville in the summer of 2009 but did not run due to engine problems.   It is scheduled to run at Maxton and Bonneville in 2010


The truck is equipped with a Jeep 4.0L inline 6 that has been bored and stroked to 5.0L.   It uses a Haltech fuel injection system and independent throttle bodies.
