Towing at 141MPH......WOW

I don't like going over 65 never mined 141! And with no sway control!

WOW, and to think they didn't use one of those valuable air deflectors. How was this speed possible without that deflector?

Your missing the point Clutch...he could have saved diesel

I'm more amazed the trailer stayed in tact with the frame. That's almost category 5 hurricane force.

I don't want to imagine what would have happened if he lost a trailer tire at that speed, particularly with only one trailer axle. It would have been catastrophic.

I wonder if he did get a flat on the trailer if the centrifugal force would keep it round.

Before you guys decide to soup up your TV, just remember that most trailer tires are only rated up to 65 mph! :-)

Posting things like going 141 would give the lesser intelligent / experienced towers stupid ideas. Red necks like me ain't even that dumb.
We run hard at night on 81 with the truckers, sometimes cresting 80 but this is off the charts man.
