Why would you need four wheels to steer? I can see four wheels in the rear to do maximum burnouts.

its been toyed with for years , tyrell (which inspired this car) ran a 6 wheeld f1 car with some sucess , the idea was to run 4 very small front wheels so youd have the grip of a larger wheel and the low nose a small wheeled car would give..

Nice pics. Good info. I would love a 4 rear wheel drive car with 2 steering wheels. I would be dead already! :D

Bah. I mean that's cool and all, but if you're going to have 6 wheels, you may as well have 3 Cad 500s and 3 TH425s. Am I right?

I dunno about that TT setup. It's drawing through a regular Holley, not even a dominator, so it can't be much more than 950cfm max. Which is maybe 10psi on a mild motor. I bet it still gets up and goes though.
