If you are into trucks, then you must watch this “Size Matters 2” video, featuring Mike Ryan as the pilot of the Super-Turbo Freightliner racing semi truck. Mike Ryan is a long-time stunt driver and Pikes Peak International Hill Climb class champion.
Size Matters 2 is a Gymkhana style action packed video which also features Daniel Leavitt. It takes place on the docks of Long Beach harbor, and some of Hollywood’s top stunt drivers and coordinators came together to produce this thriller. Their camera vehicle? The latest Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG modified camera car with EDGE arm. This video has many surprises, so you have to watch it.
What is the Banks Super-Turbo racing Freightliner semi truck? It’s what happens when Banks Power, Castrol, Mike Ryan, and many other companies come together to create one of the most powerful and capable racing semi trucks of all time. The engine starts as a massive Detroit Diesel. Banks Power went to work on it and added a layer of twin turbochargers with a supercharger on top. When all systems are operational, this setup is producing upwards of 2,800 horsepower and over 5,000 lb-ft of torque. This is more than enough to turn massive tires into nothing but smoke.
