    Right before this was a pair of Estes. So fast I couldn't get the camera set up. He's just mad he ain't got no street cred and can't hustle.

    Bring on the driverless trucks, how many have ti fall down the mountain into Denver and kill people before they're outlawed? It will happen and I'm enough of an ahole to laugh and say I told you so. I give it 6 months, just long enough for all the big guys to commit to it before they're gone.

    Wonder how the truck's going to react when it drives into a rough parking lot and a wheel comes off the ground? Or how its going to react when it needs to climb an icy 6%? Will it put on its own chains? Will it be smart enough to engage and disengage the lockers? What's it going to do when it comes down the Smasher on glare ice and it starts to slide?

    It might work down in the US where there are a lot of states with flat and relatively straight roads but it sure as hell will never work up here in the north.
     
    faux_maestro, jamespmack and MGE Dawn Thank this.
