Bam! Stubby Bob goes big-time in this episode of Roadkill, presented by Dodge. In episode 44 of Roadkill, Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger took a 1950 Ford F6 dump truck and shortened the wheelbase to just 102 inches so it would look freaky-cool—but the truck wasn’t road trip–ready by the end of the show. This time, the truck is transformed by a supercharged big-block Chevy in the back with a Gearstar 4L80E transmission and a V-drive from a boat—all set up like a ’60s dragstrip exhibition wheelstander. But as the buildup continues, the big question is whether the weight balance and the massive dualie tires will really allow the truck to jerk the wheels off the pavement or not. The answer is some action you can’t miss. Roadkill is supported by Optima Batteries, CRC Industries, Lincoln Tech, Cooper Tire, Pioneer, and Jegs! We also thank Weiand, Gearstar, and Slims Fab Farm for help with parts for this episode.

Today I silence all the Non-believers on the Noco jump starter debate. People wanted numbers even though the evidence was clearly in their face on what battery pack punched more power
The Car Rover boasts 200amps but up to 400 amps peak the Noco GB40 boasts Max 1000amps which is highly unlikely.
Amp is defined as the quantity of electricity carried in 1 second. the more resistance you have the greater the pressure or amps you’ll have. this is way when moving the hydraulic cylinder there wasn’t much electrical resistance. When the hydraulic pump was dead headed and hydraulic pressures was forced to go over the pressure relief this caused more resistance on the motor which caused the amps to go up.
That being said the baseline numbers were measured off 750 cranking amp battery. The Noco GB40 Claims 1000amps max but when put against the baseline numbers of 750 amp battery it couldn’t even break the 200amp barrier. The Car Rover stayed true to it’s amp ratings by staying well within the 200 amp rating and had way more battery capacity.
This video gives an introduction and brief look at air braking systems on heavy and commercial vehicles.
You’ll see from the animations that all systems have a compressor to supply the air, reservoirs to store the compressed air, controls for the driver to direct the air (foot and hand brake) and actuators and friction brakes to actually carry out the braking.
This video sticks the the fundamental basics of the Air Braking System and doesn’t go as far as other system components such as s-cams, relay, quick release and trailer control valves, air dryers and filters, protection valves and other system operations. We’ll go into depth with these in further videos.
