How does he stop? It seems it would take like 1 minute to stop it at that speed!

this is quite a small roadtrain tbh

#2 in Australia it certainly is.

#6 from what I remember (from watching a tv show about it) it takes a couple of miles to stop from top speed

i've seen this once.
my sister was driving and thought that she can take over, but we were shocked that it's actually really really really looongg.....
and the size of it makes you wonder how the driver passed the test to get the license.

#2 it's legal in certain part (on certain road) in Australia. From memory the longest common road train is 6 trailers. May world record attemps have been made i'm sure you can look them up - some with over 100 trailers, but obviously this isn't commercially viable.

I admit that is a long truck but its not really a road train. A proper road train is much longer

These trucks don't really turn or anything. They drop of the tanks of gas near the road at stations.

I wouldn't think the stopping distance would be much greater - a standard truck has 18 wheels, I counted 98 wheels on that train of 4 trailers, so that equals 24.5 wheels per "truck", and they usually all have brakes.
It would be a bitch to get around if you were trying to merge at an on-ramp, though!

I'm quite curious on how much time it takes for the truck to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h and how much gears does the truck actually have? I'm not much into trucks but I know that a truck with 1 trailer had 10 gears or something?

They are actually really annoying road trains. If your driving accross Australia at night, you think one is coming, so you pull over. but you can wait for hours because they are soooo far away even though they look only a few hundred meters in front of you.

So warning don't drive at night across australia :) it will drive you nutty :P

I think but not 100% sure, i think they have there own speed limit as well, as in they have a higher speed limit then everyone else.

It's more like a road rocket each section is jettisoned just so the first one with the parachute gets the driver to his job at the bottom of a deep quarry. :D
