My new ride (at work)! 197hp!






A CAT 950, it only weighs 39200lbs, has a 7.2 litre turbocharged engine, with 16:1 compression ratio, 4wd, 4 speed (4 forward, 4 reverse) and puts out an incredible 197 hp! (well, 520ft-lbs@1440rpm torque too)

The tires are cool though, they're Michelin XLD, the tire size is 555/75R25, they're my shoulder height.

And all the nessecary options, air conditioning, AM/FM radio, heater, hydraulic steering, semi automatic tranny.....

quarter mile? all at once?
It actually goes faster then I thought too in 4th, no speedo though, I can keep up with traffic on Brock Rd (60-70km/h?).

Although I'm pretty sure I could parallel park a riced up civic (depending on the rear wing height) in the bucket......the lift it 12 ft up in the air, drop it on it's roof, and drive over it.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the non-vented 19" brake rotors on all for wheels, man does it stop fast (seriously), and you get the cool air brake blow off valve noise, seat belt required if you have to stand on the brake pedal.

Hey thinair...

I used to move those things with qwk325. I don't know how the hell you have the guts to get into something like that.

I was in a 235 and i literally freaked out.

Oh yeah CAT power.. gotta love it!

here is my work toy:

Peterbilt 357 tanker truck
-CAT C12 12.8 Litre inline 6 turbo diesel (425 hp at 2100 rpm, 1560 ft/lb at 1650 rpm)
-Max weight 57,000 lbs
-23 by 12 inch polished aluminum rims (6 of them)
-13 speed sequential eaton fuller gear box
-top speed 135 km/h
-1/4 mile in enough time to sip your coffee and check out the girls in the cars next to you

P.S. it makes up for my torque-less 318
