Hey Imran, welcome to team BHP, hope you have an enjoyable stay here! For a moment, I thought we had another Safari enthusiast on board

(Some of us Safari owners refer to our rides as "trucks")

hi imran
welcome to team-bhp and also to hyderabad.

BTW, what kind of trucks are you interested in??? your profile shows your car as Indica V2. I guess this is a diesel. (i personally refer our indica dls as a truck)

Looking forward to meet up a truck enthusiast. If possible join us for the 6th july Monsoon Drive.

raj.

Welcome aboard. Even i didn't understand what kind of performance trucks are available for sale in India? Are you referring to something like an F-150 or a Dodge Ram?

And, oh yeah, join us for the team bhp monsoon drive on July 6th !!!!!

Nice pics and welcome to T-BHP. I am a big fan of trucks too.

Can you tell me something about the first pic: The weird body roll on the trailer?

Use the 'Search' function in the 'Indian Car Scene', you'll find various threads on trucks and buses, popular being the 'Commercial Vehicle Thread'.

Hi Salil,

Well, even i was curious like hell about the first pic, I understand that its used to study the stability of the tractor and the semi trailer.

The extra wheels prevents the vehicle from actually tipping over but at the same time gives a very realistic idea of the "tipping point" at various speeds and turns
