Pikes Peak Super-Turbo Semi Freightliner Race Truck Explained
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) A few days ago we posted a short video of the
Banks Super-turbo Semi Freightliner Race
truck as it raced up the 2013 Pikes Peak International Hill climb. In the
wet, the 2800 hp and 5000 lb-ft of torque Freightliner Race Truck barely
clung to the road as the rear wheels tried to tear up the mountain and
trucks tires. A few days before the race we caught up with Gale Banks, who
explained the thinking and engineering behind installing a turbo, a Supercharger, Intercoolers, and even methanol
Injection system into this monster truck. Check out this entire interview
to get to know this monster truck a little better.

Tamiya Freightliner Cascadia Evolution RC Semi Truck Run
Y'all have been waiting patiently and the time has come. Here's the first
running video of it since it was test driven around the garage after being
built with a special guest making an appearance as well. I'm very excited
with this truck since its a licensed replica of the real deal and they did
a killer job in the production and quality of the parts. As always thank
you for watching, dont forget to subscribe like comment rate and share for

Loading The Ole Freightliner - The Hard Way
*Watch In HD* I don't know if this truck had locking diff's or if they
were just not able to engage them, but having the rear axles locked-up
probably would've saved a lot of headaches this day. I don't know if this
truck rolled to the show on this trailer or not, but it looks to me, had
everything gone smoothly, that it would've scraped the tanks on the
transition from the ramp to the deck anyway. Luckily the bad decision to
charge the ramp when there are literally just inches of room for error
didn't prove fatal to the driver or that cool old 1971 White/Freightliner
cab-over. One smart decision was made there though, notice how the nice
polished reefer was moved forward out of the danger zone before all the
real drama started. Shot at Truckin' For Kids in Irwindale, California on
Sunday October 6th, 2013.

Banks Super-Turbo Freightliner RACE FOOTAGE
Truck did great. It rained and snowed later in the day when it was our time
to race. So driver Mike Ryan couldn't go 100%, but he did an awesome job.
Had to take it easy in the corners but hammered it in the straights. Next
year, weather permitting, we will be back to destroy the record!
A couple things we'd like to point out... those spectators at 0:59 are
crazy close to the track! And at 2:27 you can see that yes, it was indeed
very wet up there when we ran.
