Re: LKW Winterfest machen

I always wondered how are the trucks prepared for the use in the Far North of Siberia. I would imagine some serious preparation for all vital truck systems. Anyone with first-hand experience on here?

Re: ALLISON HALBAUTOMATIK - Pros u. Cons?

Out of interest, how does the ZF Ecomat / Ecolite (I think there also was something called Ecolite Offroad) automatic transmission compare to Allison automatic transmission? Anyone one here with experience using both? For the modern Ecomat gearboxes (years 2005 or newer), I have only seen videos wit...

Hi, habe heute mit einem Werkstattleiter von MAN gesprochen, nach einer unruhigen Nacht. ;) Der LKW ist perfekt für mich.

Re: Project: Think Beyond Limits - Actros 4x4x4

The tires are actually even taller. These are 445/95R25 so approx 1480mm tall. The 16.00R20 tyres are 1350mm tall. I agree that the limiters need to be removed first before I take it for a test ride. I will play with the tyre pressure too. These limiters are not present in the front, however, yet th...

Re: Allison Automatik - Erfahrungen ?

If I am not mistaken, the shift points could be "tuned" to a certain degree. From what I have been able to find out, one would need to get in touch with a competent Allison Trasmission dealer/service shop and discuss it. I am not certain about the costs, though.

Little update. Upgrading to the strongest OM501 engine version (456hp) will not be easy.

I got the price estimation for this work from a workshop that rebu...

So I had a chance to measure angles on my 4x4x4 truck, as it stands right now.

Here they are:
* Approach angle - 40°
* Departure angle - 33°

What do you guys think? These should be enough, right?

Indeed, it is bought. Felix: the registration regulations seem similar between Germany and Poland.
