#2 Does it really matter? It stopped better and smoother than a passenger car.

It seems that he is checking one of the wheels, why?

How is it even possible for a truck to stop that fast. I say ban all other trucks than Volvo.....or use their brake system if that seems easier.

that was pretty impressive, i guess the weight might help it stop even if there is more mass to stop.

#8 more mass translates to longer stopping distance. Look at how fast a motorcycle can stop even though it only has two very tiny contact spots from the tires compared to 18 huge fat truck tires.

#9 that is not true. The friction force between the tires and the road, that does the stopping is linearly increasing with weight. So does the momentum. That means that breaking distance isnt a function of mass.
