Something that heavy leaves you using a semi frame and axles. As far as the transmission same deal Eaton 9 or 10 speed should work.

It has been done with 2 stroke 671/871 and such already. It is alot of weight but can also be alot of torque.
The clutch cost alone is nuts and think your on your own with adapters. But that's part of the fun.
I would start with a school bus and cut the thing down to get your axles, fuel, steering, and tons of those little things. Maybe you could beef up the auto(think they slipped from the factory) or just go 9/10 speed.

I see this thing is rated at 1000HP, but I couldn't find any torque ratings or operating range. I'd have to guess that this makes well into the 2000+ ft/lb range. If you look for an Eaton, then look for 13 or 18 speed with the 1st two numbers of the model number being either 20 or 22. Perhaps a normal 9 or 10 speed would function for some daily driving in a lightweight vehicle, but most all of those that you'll find will be 1250-1650 ft/lb trannies. If the torque is truly in the mid 2000's, you'll be able to snap input shafts and main drive gear teeth at will. You can use a 13 or 18 speed as a 9 nine speed if the operating rpm range doesn't need all of those gears by eliminating the gear split.

If you think you fabrication skills are upto the task, then find a Mack 2050. The triple countershaft transmission is tough as nails and with only 5 gears and really tall top gear it might work pretty well if the operating range is 1500+rpms. They are also easy to repair.

I saw him run his fuel bike at Indy the year before his fatal wreck.
