Go outside any capital city and you'll see them passing you at over 110 km/h on a narrow two-lane highway. The worst part is the draft that can suck small cars towards them.
10 years ago
Noooooooo Mythbusters did it...

When I drove single axles, I'd max out at about 140 km/h on the freeway. At that point, it was pushing so much air that as I caught up with cars on the other lanes, I could see them shoved away from me by 1 - 2 ft and then pulled back just as my side mirror passed them.
10 years ago
yeah i have passed many. It will push you away as it pushes the air around it, and back twords it as the ait comes back together around the backside. But not enough to crash your car into it.

Metric system? That's it! All the damn Canadians have the gas, it's the only explanation!
10 years ago
i think there only australia there called road trains.
10 years ago
wat if they was a in a goe metro that thing weighs like 1000 pound if that!
10 years ago
you'll never see a road train pass you at 110 coz they are speed limited to 100. and thats as big as they get, takes quite a skill to reverse an park in that rig. (i can only image)

Meh, my SUV needs that much gas just to turn the corner.
10 years ago
That was an SUV.

Wasn't there some fuckup with double/triple tandem tankers a while back that got those banned in the US?
10 years ago
Yeah, pretty much. I think triples are still allowed in some states, though.
10 years ago
Well the tanker is passing in the right lane so maybe they are in Australia. There are roadtrains all over in the country.
10 years ago
I don't think triples are allowed in any state anymore
10 years ago
No, I think the west coast states still allow them.

Im in Perth and i head north every few months and you see the larger rigs the further out you get.
10 years ago
well kikia i think that he was going around the stupid ashole that was in the passing lane. I hate when people do that. Its a PASSING lane not a drive slow and fuck up traffic lane.
10 years ago
The "stupid asshole" was not in the passing lane. The general law is keep left unless overtaking since in Australia we drive on the left and the driver, as you can clearly see, sits on the right.
10 years ago
Incidentally that's no passing lane, it's the incoming lane. Pretty much every interstate highway is just a narrow two-lane carriageway.
10 years ago
Here in Ohio they allow triples as long as they are not tankers and only on the Turnpkie (large tollways). That's why I referred to tankers above...

I was about to call fake cause this isn't legal in the US, but then I noticed the steering wheel was on the wrong side of the car.
10 years ago
me too ..i still say fake...shit it's a train
10 years ago
NOT fake!
10 years ago
Nope, not fake, definately in Aussie, see em all the time especially stock trucks.
10 years ago
How the fuck does that thing turn a corner?
10 years ago
Including the cabin there are 4 links which would all rotate, I cant see how the fuck the thing could possibly turn a corner.

It's quite simple, most of the highways you find them on are almost particularly straight, Stuart Highway is a perfect example.

If you think it's fake, search for "road trains" or "quad b-doubles".
10 years ago
chairmans right.Saw a show awhile back about some of the worlds most dangerous roads.There's some long ass highway in southern australia that has those trucks on it constantly.
10 years ago
yep hitched it a few times... speed was the prefered drug of some drivers to stay awake
10 years ago
When I was a truck driver, I was so fucking extreme that I took speed to help me sleep.
10 years ago
wanko...funny shit hhahahaha

How does it turn a corner? Carefully.

looks like australia

thats a bad link.

For some reason, there's a space between the period and the "jpg" Remove that, and it works just fine.
10 years ago
Danke, should have seen that. Good picture.
10 years ago
so what you guys are all saying is australia is harboring terrorists and wmd?
10 years ago
And we would have gotten away with it, if it wasn't for some meddling Yak. Nobody suspects Aussies, nobody.
10 years ago
uncanny

Can it go "ludicrous" speed?
10 years ago
haha, yeah, I'd like to see that truck go "Plaid" myself...

lol!

Saw a few driving from brisbane to cairns in '02, you've gotta be driving pretty fucking slow to be overtaken by one of those, and technically, they're not supposed to. As for cornering, they don't, at least not when laden. All loading depots run parallel to the highway, they don't go anywhere near the city centres, for obvious reasons
10 years ago
No cornering? Just google roadtrains and you'll find a couple turning corners, and there's even one reverse parking.
10 years ago
... Definitively that's australia, and that's called road train... like they have to drive too many miles to get some things one side to another of the island, that's why they're so long...
