Interesting read this thread.
Lorries dont use the retarder or exhaust brake in wet or icy conditions, not if you dont want the trailer taking the lead
As demonstrated by a couple of our drivers. The gaffer cant afford to keep re-cabbing Scania toplines to often.
Advanced driving/riding, easy Information, Position, Speed, Gear, Acceleration or it was when I was teaching it.
Left foot braking, never used it. All my rally cars were rwd and I had enough on keeping em on the bloody road, with out worrying what me left foot was doing
Hence the term 'cars'.
Bikes, the faster the better, but since I bought me rib I am not allowed to have one anymore. Something about too many toy's!!!!! And to cap it all me Vectra SRI is going to be replaced by a TD5 disco.
Apart from that an excellent read. After living in a truck all week its threads like this that give me that welcome home feeling
Time for me pipe and slipper's
