What a joke that is. Was supposed to leave Saturday morning. Truck decided to say f that and I didnít get gone till this afternoon. Snow and ice hit and 44 across missouri is shut down in like 5-6 spots. Anywhere from 1 car wrecks to 30 car pileups. I made it like 3 hours from the house.

You seriously think some outside company that lists ONE truck is somehow going to explode into tens of thousands overnight? You blame the large fleets for cutting rates but never said how this Girteka is going to take the freight from the existing carriers that are currently hauling it here! Maybe I need to suffer a head injury to think like you? I guess in your head Girteka is going to attract tens of thousands of O/Oís to come work for them, to haul freight that they got from the existing US carriers by raising the rates to the shippers?
They cut rates, thats how you get work. They dont need owner operators, they buy their own trucks and trailers. Money comes over from the east of European Union border..

You really are an ignorant sob arenít you? I quoted you again just to prove it. So this amazing European company is SOOOO amazing theyíre going to.....
1. Come to the US and buy tens of millions of dollars in equipment.
2. Cut all the rates to get work
3. Attract drivers (that we already have a massive shortage of) while taking enough out of the lower freight rates THEY CUT to pay drivers enough to get them to come work for them?

That sounds like the perfect formula for a successful business model.

I'm assuming this is sarcasm? They did it right but it blew up??? Wtf. I don't recall jfaulkner's 1138 run ale anywhere near that kind of smoke. It didn't blow up either. In fact only 2 trucks at Antrims that were over 1300 even smoked much once boosted

That must be the worlds only 379 with a Volvo Motor. Theyíre the only ones that can truly break 1000hp.

2001 KW T800, factory Single Axle, 35K single axle, 435HP N14 and a 10 spd. Sold new in Baltimore, spent most of it's life in NYC. Looks very clean in pictures, hopefully get it picked up this week or next. Didn't get to go look, but I think we'll be happy...guy thinks the miles are right, says its super tight. I don't think we can go wrong.

23K rear, 12K front, 35K GVWR...I guess I did leave out that GVWR part in the first post.

Kinda, it's the non Ford owned version...Cummins.... obviously would prefer a yellow engine, but hard to pass up a truck like that with 388K on it. Nothing wrong with an N14 when you're going to be under 60K gross.

I want to shake the guys hand that ordered it new...Only think we'd change is that a 9 or 13 would be nicer so it's brainless for us to drive...Everything else we own is 9, 13, or 18 speed and that 6th gear is going to give us fits. That and I love the look of a T800 with dual breathers...
