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. See more videos from the mountain and from the race shop, plus get all the tech specs here:

The Funky Diesel Benz - "Opposite of a Sleeper"
What do you think when you see a smokestack protruding from the hood of an old school 80's Mercedes? Ls swap? Racecar?!? NOPE! At Street Car Takeover Orlando we ran into this coal rolling, head turning, 18-second 1/4 mile DIESEL  BENZ. As the owner says, "it's the opposite of a sleeper", and he's exactly right..but a slow E.T. doesn't stop ANYBODY from having fun with this car. Looks the like beginning of a badass project! We can't wait to see how far it has come the next time we run into it!! ------------------------------------ 1320Video Gear ► Facebook ► Instagram ► Twitter ► Submit your video to us ►
