Leaving the Castlemaine truck show 2012 : Part 2
The second of 3 clips showing some of the trucks leaving Campbells Creek
after the Castlemaine truck show. By the time I set up and started
filming, some had already been leaving. I actually had to edit a few nice
ones out due to drunken yobbo's fascinations with video camera's that think
it's really funny to act like tools for the camera while you're telling
them to bugger off. These were filmed over about a 3 hour period.

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
TRUCK DRIFT FAIL
Truck goes a little too hard drifting and....well, watch the video!
Extreme Danger Rally Race in a Semi Truck
Pro Racer and Hollywood Stuntman, Mike Ryan, decided to accept the
challenge of wrestling his purpose built Freightliner Cascadia up the Mt.
Washington Auto Road in the 2011 "Climb To The Clouds" in New Hampshire.
This video feature shows the amazing talent and commitment it takes to
pilot a 10,000 lbs. Semi Truck with 1,950 twin turbocharged horsepower up an extremely
steep and narrow mountain road.
Mike's time of 8:02.65 to the top was the 27th fastest time to the summit
and was a jaw dropping experience to all who witnessed the Gulf Oil
liveried Semi streaking up the mountain.
With multiple on board cameras placed in dramatic locations around the Big
Rig...ride along and experience the sights and sounds of a full speed race
run up this treacherous road.
Don't forget to click the link above to visit MIke's facebook page and
become a fan to keep up to date on his exciting plans for the future.

Obstacle Course, Hill Climb, and Coal Chute! - Top Truck Challenge 2013
Purchase the Top Truck Challenge DVD here!
The Obstacle Course begins with a shockingly tall and long slippery hill
descent known as the "first hill" and it ends with a nasty dogleg gully
that's tantalizingly close to the finish line. In between is a treasure
trove of terror. The "lower section" forces competitors to navigate a
360-degree turn through three deep water holes and sand. From there,
competitors travel up a hill to the "upper section" that includes a
deceiving off-camber U-turn (known as "U-turn Hill"), two deep water holes,
and numerous tight turns. This event has a 10-minute time limit, but speed
is the enemy. This is because the course is marked with numerous cones and
each one hit adds 20 seconds to the overall time. If all four tires of a
rig travel outside a cone the rig is disqualified at that point. Safety
violations net a whopping two-minute penalty. Clearly, accuracy is the key
to success in the Obstacle Course.
Think back to those hillclimbs you've done in your 4x4. Yeah, the TTC Hill
Climb isn't like that. The Hill Climb is built specifically for TTC, it's
approximately 600 feet in length and it has an average angle of
approximately 60 degrees. It twists and turns as it winds through the
poison oak and it's peppered with strategically-placed deep holes and dirt
hills. Yes, we added hills to our Hill Climb. The Hill Climb is loose,
steep, and unpredictable. Naturally, we don't let drivers see it before
they run it because that would ruin the surprise. The Hill Climb rewards
those who can think on-the-fly and punishes those who are thinking about
the next event. We allowed each competitor 5 minutes to tackle the hill and
during that time they could stop, reverse, or winch. If a competitor
exceeded the time limit, traveled out of bounds, or violated a safety rule
they were disqualified at that point.
The Mini Rubicon, a staple of Top Truck for years, was a brutal event that
forced competitors to fight for every inch of forward progress. It was
tough and unforgiving. We wanted something tougher. So, for 2013 we
replaced the Mini Rubicon with the awe-inspiring Coal Chute. This event
uses a newly developed area (Rock Rash Ridge) at the Hollister Hills SVRA
that contains an amazing collection of man-made obstacles. Naturally, we
tweaked it to make it exclusive to Top Truck. Our mind-bending course was
approximately 525 feet in length, and included steep walls in excess of 7
feet tall and jumbles of rocks and cement tubes. We even brought in a water
truck and created a waterfall on the final cement climb. The course was
broken into four distinct sections. We threw competitors a curve ball and
allowed them to skip one of the two first sections. However, we penalized
each competitor 10 minutes if they bypassed the first section and 6 minutes
if they bypassed the second section. Strategy was a major player at this
event. There was a 20-minute time limit and safety violations netted a
two-minute penalty. If two of the vehicles tires traveled outside of the
cones the competitor was disqualified at that point.
