Volvo Diesel D24T drag racing at GIR midnight madness
Second pass, racing an obviously much fasterMustang. This time I tried building some Boost but the lights dropped before I was ready, and only managed about 3lbs off the line. Its a big turd off the line but at least it wasn't spinning its ass off. Time was improved, 17.2@83mph. Still slow though. It really needs the manual trans!
Volvo diesel D24t with hood stack at night
Not the greatest quality, but it does shoot a small flame from the hood
stack! Right at the beginnign of the video if you slow motion it you can
see the orange flame shoot up. Its really much brighter in person.
Compound Turbo DIESEL Rat Rod - Got Smoke?
http://www.1320video.com/store It's definitely not fast yet, but how much
of a badass would you feel like driving a rat rod with a GIANT turbo hanging out the windshield? Then, when you
stab the gas, there's nothing but thick smoke out of your (non-existent)
rear view mirror! Pretty big badass would be the correct answer!

Volvo Diesel D24T drag race at GIR midnight madness
Racing a worthless Neon, but there was so much torque off the line I was
burning the tires off! I had a 3.3 second 60' time! I was running him
down on the top end up I had to let up to get it to stop spinning at first.
Time was a crappy 18.9@80mph
CRASHES 2013 Volvo FH
The driver of a new Volvo FH would emerge from an 80 km/h collision without
any serious injuries. And if the truck rolled over, there is an emergency
exit at hand. But not only the driver's safety has improved.
Thousands of simulated collision tests and about 100 real crash tests have
allowed Volvo Trucks' engineers to develop a safer truck cab. For instance,
high-strength materials such as dual-phase steel have been used in
collision-absorbing beams and in the doors. The cab too uses the strongest
steel available today for body panelling -- ultra-high-strength, thermoset,
press-moulded boron steel.
This is a video shot after we put a Junk Yard head on a rebuilt 30k D24T.
I was trying to highlight the different sounds between a young D24T and
150k old D24T.
1979 GMC Detroit 453T hauling a load
Pulling away from an intersection, twin stickin' it pulling an 18' flat bed
with whats left of an old wood deck. Probably 2500ish lbs between trailer
and load. Nothing major, but no problem for the ole' 453! Vid was taken
by a buddy from his truck so it isn't the greatest sound, hope to get some
better outside the truck footage soon.
