    yeah, that's the same thing i was saying......how the hell did he hold the cam and drive at the same time. Its nice to see what our trucks are capable of but that stuff is best kept at the track. I've seen videos of people just trying to show off(stuff like the video above) and end up crashing into cars, or even worse, people.

    I think a passenger is filming. It looks like the camers sits on the right side of the truck and also angles in from the right when focused on the gauges.

    Still very dumb. Watching the video, it looks like he can see two dashed lane lines in his light pattern. A DOT reference I found says typical lane markings should be 10 feet long with 30 feet of spacing between lines. So he can probably see 70-100 feet in front of him. At 120 mph, he's moving at 176 feet per second. You figure about 1/2 a second to notice something and 1/4 of a second to react. He'll have covered 132 feet before the brakes even start to slow the truck. Anything that shows up in his headlights will probably be hit near full speed, since he has very little time to brake.

    I've long outgrown the need to go 120mph in a car. In a truck, just seems stupid.
