RE: Interesting German Motorhome

Looks cool. A few things I noticed, does not look like they do slides (unless I missed it) and the bin doors are hinged at the bottom. Seems like if a bin latch would fail the bin door would fall open. Generally they do not do slides, but seem to be a feature of luxury " Horse Boxes", air conditioned Motorhome, Toy haulers, built on European MDT and HDT Truck Chassis European MDT based Motorhome http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a186/RobRyan7/image_zpsvenil4fo.jpeg

RE: Looking for a Flat tow truck

The new Ford F-150 with aluminum construction are much lighter that the older steel ones. My 2015 F-150 super cab (extended cab) 4WD 6.5' bed with 5.0l V-8 is around 4700 pounds That's the same as my 2008 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab 4x4. In the new F150 the v-6 is even a little lighter, and possibly the Twin Turbo 2.7l v-6 as well. Its a LOT of truck considering the weight. That is pretty light. Global Ford Ranger has a base weight of 4,860lb,

RE: Why hasn't anyone released a HD truck with a Turbo V8?

They are now the fastest street cars you can get on a 1/4 Mile. Say what???????? :h Hard for me to say that as I am an old Baby Boomer.but the " Ricers" Rotary or petrol engines are putting up phenomal performances Did you not see the video I posted? The one with the street legal truck in it pulling a 5 in the 1/4 mile? And then he has to drive over a 1,000 miles on the street pulling a trailer to race again and again and again........ No have not posted it. In the class it is for highly modified but unstreetable former production cars of a similar weight and using the production engine. 3litre Toyota Supra 5.97 T 240mph. Cars has run slower et 263mph

As long as you want to drag race tow vehicles don't forget electric: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVXa6i3iqHw This is the type of power we could have in a hybrid truck. It would be cool if the hills we climb were 10 to 15 seconds long. Unfortunately the hills I climb are a bunch longer than that. Electric power is like nitomethane. You can get a lot of power out of it for a short period of time. Exactly

RE: Why hasn't anyone released a HD truck with a Turbo V8?

That little ricer put a whoopin on that Falcon. In fact the Ricers would kill ShinerBocks Fantasy 9 second CorvetteThey are now the fastest street cars you can get on a 1/4 Mile. In fact their performance would put many 1970's Funny Cars to shame. That is how much cars have evolved in 50yrs Honda Civic versus Turbo Corvette( Turbo engine, ) I don't think your comparing Apples to Apples here. Having said that I would take that American iron Corvette over that carved up Chonda any day. But not if you are racing modified or vastly modified street Sedans. A Toyota, Supra not eligible for the street, but weighing close to its production weight, turning low 6's and in one case a 5 second pass at 264mph, using Avgas and a stock dimension 3 litre Petrol engine.:B Defintely catches you attention.

RE: Why hasn't anyone released a HD truck with a Turbo V8?

Not legal to run slicks on the road here either. No it was a drag strip, you need drag racing tyres:? Cannot remember the laws of every country you visited? pretty basic law, you would have to be pretty thick not to know.As far as II know Canada has similar laws to the US, your " foreign destination" If you had bothered to see the YouTube video, you would have, noticed it was a street car on slicks And that is why I said it was not street legal. My Vette that ran high 9s was 100% street legal tires and all. The same tires I used to drive to the strip were the same ones I raced with. And no, I don't remember every law from every country I visited. Why on earth would I need to know that drag cars would need to be registered in Australia? I can guarantee that you don't know every law in every country you visited or even your own. It is Street legal, that is why the licence plates and and the YouTube video from a modified Street class group. Your Vette ran 9 seconds on Street tyres, which are illegal on a drag strip.:RYou can remember coming to Australia but cannot remember the laws : hint we drive on the opposite side. Your answers are becoming more fantasy each time you post.

RE: Why hasn't anyone released a HD truck with a Turbo V8?

Sure is street Driveable . Yes it is a 1/4 mile track. You would not be getting 7.8 at 180mph on a 1000ft track:R Licence plate is not for decoration. You seem to be driving what others here would be find impossible to get, especially an Australian Ford Falcon Ute and your from Texas too :@ Australia must have some pretty laxed laws when it comes to street safety. The tires alone would make that thing not street legal here. Make that thing street legal here, and it would not be pulling that time on a track that looks like a 1000 ft track. That licence plate would only be decoration here. You have been to Australia:) but you do not know that the cars need street registration for drag racing sedans? Sure it was not Antartica? It would be pretty amazing if he could pull 7.8 at 180mph in a 1000ft track, closer to 200mph on a 1/4 mile YouTube video is from a modified street sedan site. Likes I said, Australia must have pretty laxed laws and it would not be street legal here. Here, you cannot legally run racing slicks on the road and there is no way he could run that time on street tires. He would just be spinning tires. Oh and am I suppose to know every law and highway penal code for every country I visited? How would you expect someone just visiting Australia to know drag racing laws of Austraila. Seriously? Not legal to run slicks on the road here either. No it was a drag strip, you need drag racing tyres:?

RE: Fiat-Chrysler Used Defeat Devices In Its Diesel Vehicles

I'm not surprised at anything any manufacture does anymore. Also seems no one from the Blue Oval Brigade as you called it really gives a rats butt about it. If it was the other way around it would be different im sure.:B Based on prior history, the Dearborn Irregulars are just as eager to pounce as the Ram Mafia. One exception does not completely disprove the rule. :W Although perhaps this is the first step in a new Era of peace and understanding! Any bets? In the case of the US,cheating on FE is another way to get around CAFE regulations. In the case of RAM and Bigeland they were caught out. Mitsubushi was also caught outside the US on FE numbers, got a huge fine as a result.It is being acquired by Nissan

RE: Why hasn't anyone released a HD truck with a Turbo V8?

Friend had a Barra tuned to 1000hp and it was streetable. GreatStraight six engine, Last version had 425hp and a max short boost 470lbs ft of torque at 1800rpm. Torque curve was very very flat.. Ford have sold out completely all versions of these. In very heavy demand. A 7second Ford Falcon Ute Ford Falcon Video does a 7 second quarter That does nog look like a quarter mile track. Maybe a 1000 ft. Not saying it isn't, but just that it doesn't look like one. And that thing is not street drivable. If it could pull 9 seconds on a quarter mile and still could be driven home after racing like my 08 Vette then I would be impressed. Sure is street Driveable . Yes it is a 1/4 mile track.

RE: Why hasn't anyone released a HD truck with a Turbo V8?

I would love to see the old cast iron Ford 300 (4.9L) straight six brought back, but turbocharged. Bring it up to the modern age with variable valve timing, variable ignition, 4 valves per cylinder, and direct injection. About 380 hp and 500 lb-ft at a low 2,000 or 2500 rpm would be ideal for a gasoline Super Duty. Sounds like an updated version of the Ford Barra motor would be what you're asking for. Ticks nearly all the boxes, but this motor won't ever be produced for the US (and pretty soon ever since they're shuttering the plant in October). It's an Aussie specific motor for their utes and falcon range vehicles. Here is the Wikipedia link for more reading. I actually rode in a Falcon with one of those engines. Pretty quick. Not Corvette or Mustang quick, but pretty quick. I would actually want a bigger just like the old 300 was. The old 300 was not a high revver like those engines. Less horsepower and more torque down low. Friend had a Barra tuned to 1000hp and it was streetable.

RE: MITSUBISHI FUSO FE84D good for pulling 5er?

I looked on the Canadian website and it seems to me they have great payload but the torque out of the motors is not that great.... my 2011 F350 has 400hp and 800lb/ft of torque. I see 215hp...ok... but 452 pounds of torque... I like the fact I would be driving in a 'class A' type of windshield but I don't like the numbers.... Most HDT Trucks have seemingly a lot less horsepower , but tow vast loads. One is a heavy cycle engine,versus a light cycle in the F350. To do something similar or attempt to do the same thing, your F350 would be very much down rated.

RE: F-150 3.0 diesel Pictures

That will increase. Cummins is being pushed out of the OTR market in the US. Cummins market share is doing just fine.... http://www.ccjdigital.com/cummins-detroit-make-up-more-than-half-of-market-last-year/ I hope so, but Scania/ MAN want in their case MAN engines in Navistar Trucks. Still Cummins is used mainly in Australian Kenworths and as an alternative for IVECO Powerstar Trucks. IVECO has come out with a 16ltre 775hp engine in 2014, but no application so far in a OTR truck
