what in the hell is this thing
What? You mean you don't own that?
who makes it and nor would i want to own it it it's butt ugly
Quit cracking on @Tazz next truck
You didnt own that either.....
It took scientists and engineers and teachers along the way to design that even public roads and your kindergarten teaher to "own" that
That overhang though...
I don't think it's a corporate job. Looks more like a research project using a standard tractor.
Hell I just zoomed in. It says "experimental" on the door.
The folks who work on these projects seem to forget that it's not 100% straight line on a smooth, flat highway. They don't seem to take into account bad roads and/or the actual delivery.
I'm sure it does a great job cutting through the air, but that's a LOT of overhang beyond the front axle for even an experienced driver to take into consideration every time he has to swing. Even those long nose 379s at least put the wheels as close to the front as possible.
They will have to re-engineer all the Cat Scales so a low boy can cross
I applaude the effort. It's the small guy engineering and testing the theory. Corporations throw millions - he believes and I wish I had his MPG'S.
It appears to be the Airflow bullet truck. It says so right on the truck.
Does anyone even remember that was T600's nickname when it came out?
And the T800's were aardvarks, although that didn't catch on nearly like the anteater did.
Pretty dumb design to have survived over 30 years and counting.
Yeah, while it had a much larger interior,and lots of aero tricks, the T2000 wasn't substantially better than the T600, as far as overall drag. It's easier to push the air to the side rather than over the top, and that narrow nose on the anteaters did a good job of it! Same reason the Centurys did good on fuel.
Looking for portraits? That's the wrong end!
