2009 MCAS Miramar Airshow - Shockwave Jet Truck
Shockwave Jet Truck
2009 MCAS Miramar Airshow
Friday October 2, 2009
IN THIS VIDEO, Kent Shockley fires up the newly rebuilt Shockwave Jet Truck and takes it down Runway 24R at Miramar for a dry run. This newly rebuilt Shockwave features many more and much-improved safety features than the original. It is those safety features that were on the original Shockwave that Kent is able to bring to you this "second-generation" Shockwave.
I apologize for any bad color and/or vertical lines or American flag intrusion that may or may not be in this video. Unfortunately there were American flags that got in the way of the video during some critical parts of the videos and I have had some camera trouble throughout the weekend.

Transfer Dump Race: The Complete Run
Mark Tarascou and his Pete 359 is seen participating in a transfer dump competiton at the 2011 Truckin' For Kids Truck Show. Although there were a few glitches, it was still a good show.
For those not familiar with dump trucks like these, they are set up with a system that allows the driver to back the truck up while they are standing behind it to make attaching the towbar easier. The driver puts the truck in reverse gear and shuts the engine off. At the rear is a switch or a button that is used to engage the starter motor on the engine without starting the truck. Since the transmission is in reverse, as the starter motor turns the engine it also turns the driveline and backs the truck up. I'm not a trucker so I don't know what this system or technique is called, but that is how it works. Thanks for watching. Please rate and share this video with your friends. Shot on 9-25-11.
