load of paw-paw's for Cape Town market. 18speed Autoshift and 4.1 diff

fast diff ratios. Cops will fine you from 90km/h and up.

Going thru the gears in a CAT V8 powered 80 ton road train
Only watch this if you like big bore V8s and you've got good speakers with
the volume cranked right up! Cab ride on the Nullarbor Plain in South
Australia near the roadhouse. If you've ever wondered how long it takes to
get up to speed @ 80 tons with 600 HP this will give you some idea. More
vids to follow later.
Argosy Freightliner with 6" Straight Pipes | Broekhuizen
Blending style with imagination, the latest Freightliner Argosy custom
built by Derick Broekhuizen is one spectacular truck and trailer unit.
Having started out with the Iron Duke, the Iron Warrior is Bigger, Better
and Bolder... all the "B"s that Derick just loves! Being known for his
meticulous attention to detail, with more sharp detail and shiny stainless
steel - this Argosy is a striking Rig in its own right.
This Big Broekhuizen Freightliner is powered by a 500hp Detroit engine
blowing smoke "loud and proud" through 3m 6" straight stack pipes.
Henred Fruehauf built the 6 x 12 Tauntliner with all the stainless steel
items custom made in the Broekhuizen factory.
