I dont know if that thing could actually keep all if its wheels within the lane. Cause even as the truck was making the turns wide the trailer wheels were barely on the road. I dont know what the guy who posted the video is about. Deals Gap is a public road not a race track, maybe this guy should just join a trackday.

He was because imagine you were in another car coming around that corner when he shot around it IN YOUR LANE... that would be a bad feeling.

Have you checked out the website for Deals Gap? They have some pictures of trucks that DIDN'T make it..........even using both lanes!!!
But a spread axle on that rode is just ASKING for trouble.

Seeing it more clearly now, I noticed that the truck is going a little too fast for roads like that, I can see speeds like than from a dump truck maybe, since they got a short wheel base but not from an 18 wheeler. I revert my previous statement and conclude that I would my pants if I were to run into that monster. Conclusion: The should not be driving like that...

I am pretty sure in most states the law requires a vehicle to stay in it's own lane.
