You all should check out 'semi-truck drag racing in Quebec on Utube. Unbelievable bow fast they are and how much power they make

In the States, semi truck drag racing ( tractor only) is big thing. In the north western states where logging is prevelant, they load a single trailer ( equally for each) and drag race those all typically in a 1/4 mile.

But - those guys waaay north, load 2 trailers in tandem AND then race uphill. Some really cool footage on UT. I think in some cases those guys must have the Pope bless the u-joints and driveshaft...

Exactly. The torque has to be many thousands of foot pounds to launch those beasts. Not a giubo joint in the house.

From the Weather Channel...
