Watch as Mario Racicot’s 24-Cylinder Freightliner Argosy Threatens To Take The Weight Sled Residence!
Data on what you’re going to see right here is skinny, however right here’s what we have now: You’re taking a look at a 2014 Freightliner Argosy that started off as a glider truck…meaning you bought every part however a powerplant from the manufacturing unit. In some unspecified time in the future down the road, a 24V71 Detroit Diesel mill…yeah, you learn that proper, a 24-cylinder, supercharged two-stroke diesel that, if my understanding of Detroit Diesels is appropriate, is a 1,074 cubic inch wall of noise that’s higher off in a ship than it ever was connected to a cab-over truck. Reportedly, an Allison automated trans is conserving issues collectively and is placing the facility down. How a lot energy is it making? A inventory DD 24V71 is about 1,800 horsepower. We’ve seen claims that this factor is pushing the three,000 horsepower mark. And if you wish to know the way a lot torque it’s making, simply watch the video. I’m hard-pressed to consider something I’ve ever seen in my life up to now that has made the pulling trailer their bitch fairly like this Argosy does…no five-Hemi tractor or three-turbine setup has put the type of harm on the sled that this cab-over semi tractor does. It doesn’t simply do a full pull, it does one whereas tearing down the course at a velocity that will impress a big-rig drag racer on asphalt, unladen. And reportedly, when it’s not busy displaying different drivers simply how weak their each day rigs are, it’s hauling a dump trailer, as a result of after all it’s.
Someplace, Lohnes is hyperventilating, I can simply sense it. If I can discover footage of this factor whipping donuts just like the Bandag Bullet, he may be match for the straightjacket.
