I say dreaded as, if you come up towards one of these in the bulldust (talcum powder fine dust, great vast clouds of it, on some outback country dirt roads, they do not want to slow down, as it takes a while to build up speed, and hog the road.

Long live the darkside and those with the courage to travel there.

Don't want to get in the way of one of those! It might not be very easy for those things to stop.

I was just thinking....."Extreme Demolition Derbies". Imagine if you had a criss-cross oval track with about three of those in 10th gear playing chicken with each other. I'd pay to see that.

It would have to be a mighty big stadium, by the time they turned and accelerated, not much need to stop there. Yes Topmoo, I think they would go right over the top of you if you were unfortunate to be in the road. They would probably be a nightmare to stop, like the big bulk carrying ships that take forever to stop.

I liked the last truck (modular moving system) It's like crossing a pallet jack and the Hulk.
