I like old BMWs
2 years ago
Lol dv
2 years ago
The old 7 series especially.
2 years ago
The fastest I've ever driven in a car, was in a 2003 BMW M5/ E39, on the road that leads to Syracuse-Hancock airport. It was electronically limited to 155 mph.
2 years ago
did 135 in a '74 Plymouth Bonneville once...rip 455 :(
2 years ago
or was it a 456?
2 years ago
meh i got laid innit so whatev
2 years ago
too bad it was lime green and rusty though - the car, not me
2 years ago
I think you mean a Pontiac Bonneville, Poss. And yes, the 455 was optional that year.
2 years ago
dammit yah pontiac - unbelievable power...i never knew what i had until it vass gone


story of my life
2 years ago
That engine in '74 had 250 horsepower, which was pretty good for a big lead sled in the 70's. That was the last year before they started putting catalytic converters on cars, I think. I wasn't even born yet, so I could be wrong.
2 years ago
big lead sled...i like that phrase - exactly what it felt like
...zero to 40 in ten seconds...40 to 110 in the next five
2 years ago
I use that term for cars of that era, but technically it's supposed to refer to the Mercury Eight's from the 1949-51 model years. Great ride for hot rodding.
2 years ago
Amateurs..... I had the wonderful experience of driving an Audi R8 up to about 180 / 185 mph..... absolutely nothing like it.....
2 years ago
That's car that belongs on a race track anyway. Try driving that fucker during a winter around here.
2 years ago
I was on a track with that one.... it was great....
2 years ago
For winter... I'll stick with the faithful 4runner
2 years ago
I bet it was fun, tbh. At 155 I started to get disoriented and decided to slow down. It's like everything starts flying past you faster than your brain can process it.
2 years ago
the trick is to look further ahead than you normally do
2 years ago
*125. 155 was the car's max speed. If it hadn't been controlled, I bet that 4.9 liter could've hit 180.
2 years ago
Oh, I always do that, Nix. They taught us that in NTTS.
2 years ago
Further than that, even.... an Audi R8 is very different than a tractor trailer....
2 years ago
I still meet people to this day, that think a tractor trailer can stop quicker than a car because it has air brakes.
2 years ago
naaaa..... the increase weight provides more resistive friction which allows it to stop quicker...
2 years ago
That's something fries would say.
2 years ago
well, he is pretty smart with this kind of stuff, ya know......
2 years ago
Yeah, I'm sure he was well aware of how fast his moped could stop.
2 years ago
I would hope so... that's pretty critical info to have.
2 years ago
I was always told to plan on at least 525 feet (160 meters) of stopping distance with an 80,000 pound load from 65 mph on dry pavement.
2 years ago
pfff, a strong brick wall or a stupid pole can cut that down to zero feet.
2 years ago
dry OR wet pavement.
2 years ago
Stupid poles.
2 years ago
You're close on the stop time minnow, but the top weight without extra endorsement is 75,000 lbs
2 years ago
In America anyway
2 years ago
Because the top weight allowed with a 53 foot trailer and a tractor for a total of 72 feet is 75,000 pounds
2 years ago
Unless you go doubles or triple trailers, triples only legal in certain us states
2 years ago
your top weight is 800 lbs

Talking responsible driving for real
2 years ago
why dont you take fucking off for real?
2 years ago
I suppose drivers like us can ignore the rules and rum two wheelers like over
2 years ago
*run
2 years ago
By the way, that little rule doesn't apply to flat beds in most "industrial" states. *cough* Michigan *cough*
2 years ago
Don't ask why I know that. I just do.
2 years ago
i for one know better than to ask why you know anything capt stubing
2 years ago
Which rule Kirk, the weight because its a flatbed
2 years ago
Touché bearded one.
2 years ago
thats also how whuna gets around..riding on a flatbed
2 years ago
Let's just say somebody in this thread has seen 4 x 50k# steel coils loaded on a flat bed to be taken for galvanizing....and once or twice 5.
2 years ago
Not saying it didn't happen, but it's nothing I've ever heard of. However I don't pull flatbeds "mostly reefers" , but I still know sate rules.

Maybe there are variances depending on the state and freight, it has been known to happen
2 years ago
Even if you don't, if you ever see coil carriers, they almost always carry two coils, which will average 45-50k# un-galvanized. Zinc galvanizing on 1g-1g steel will add another few k pounds. Michigan does not regulate that, nor does Ohio (sort of)
2 years ago
Well I can't dispute or agree, as I said I haul reefers, and only reginal within my four sate region.

Easy job really. Called hook and book...no hands on. Drop a trailer,connect another to the fifth wheel, drop at its destination and move on.
2 years ago
Then you would know why they'd want to carry two coils...think axle placement. That kind of weight is a lot of the reason roads are so poor in a lot of the Great Lake states, especially Michigan....

"Hook and book "

It just gets better and better. Whumu drinking hard lemonade to forget about his stressful life as a "booker hooker ".
2 years ago
Honestly though, 4 state truck driver: even sadder than mall cop.
2 years ago
Never heard of "hook and book" driving. I've heard of drop and hook, maybe it's the same thing. The max gross weight of a shipment with a tractor trailer combination is 80,000 lbs.
2 years ago
U turn then get the hell out of there
2 years ago
Drop and hook meant you drop off one trailer, then just hook up to another and leave when your paperwork is done. Usually no loading/ unloading.
2 years ago
I suppose you could be right, although I was taught that its was 75 78,000 maxed out.
2 years ago
*75 ~ 78,000
2 years ago
Hook and book is just slang for dropping and hooking, same thing
2 years ago
100% no touch freight
2 years ago
Shitbird

honestly though.....regional driving hauling reefers makes for a decent life, especially with the right Co. and the right pay "percentage per run, or per mile"
2 years ago
I was taught that the max was 75,000 too, tbh...but what they told us upon graduation was to go by that figure so that you don't make a mistake and haul an overweight trailer/ load.
2 years ago
My biggest gripe was that steer axle limits vary from state to state, or at least they did when I drove.
2 years ago
Pffff, just avoid the chicken coops and you'll be fine.
2 years ago
Meh, I don't have that concern to worry about per say with my runs.I'm also still learning as I go along.

But in as much as I know it's either 12,000 or 20,000 in most states. A handful of others vary.
2 years ago
I'll stuck to the mall cop story for now. Way more comedic potential. Truck driver is just sad.
2 years ago
Also you think driving regional is bad?

No! OTR is not what I want, I like being home. Regional I'm only out one or two nights at a time and I enjoy the same pay.

OTR is what young guys want so they can travel, or any single guys wanting to work more miles.

For the last time possum: punky is an annoying piece of shit. Nobody wants em back here but you. Get over your fucking guilt and move on, willya.
And if you're really engineering punkys return right now, just know that I will find you and I will cut you if you're successful.

You've been warned, now drop it.
