I read further into the wiki.

The brakes are actually a mix of air AND hydraulic.

quote:

Brake system is air-over-hydraulic six wheel drum with a driveline parking brake, although gladhands exist on the rear of the vehicle for connection to trailers with full air service and emergency brakes. Braking performance of the truck is similar to other power drum brake vehicles of this size. Each drum was designed with maximum efficiency in mind, and individual drums can dissipate up to 12 kW of braking heat. Due to this brake system and GVWR under 26,001 pounds, the big deuce can be driven without a commercial driver's license in most states. California requires a CDL to operate an M35 on public roads.

I really just need to make a thread for this

It probably wasn't, if craigslist is like any other forum/website/whatever theres probably a large group of people that don't even use it but constantly go on it to report whoever they see that they think is breaking the rules. Odds are they assumed the listing was fake.

Flags are unquestioned on craigslist as far as I can tell, there are no appeals or oversight. It might take a couple votes, but you could proxy it and take down any ad you dislike or hope to snipe.

Yes, they are. I don't know exactly how much one would cost, but here's one listed with "inquire" (a.k.a. "If you gotta ask, you can't afford it!") as the price:

I hate it when people do that, all the cars I'm curious about on the Ruf (Texas) pre-owned page are "Call for price":

http://www.ecarlist.com/cgi-bin/sho...x&sort=normdesc

I know the pre-owned Rufs are always call for price, but why the 930? I guess it's accurate anyway, I have to ask and definitely can't afford them.

Also, there's a tiptronic RT12 for sale. On one hand I think "Why!!!!", on the other hand it'd piss off the purists enough it'd almost be worth getting (if you had millions in disposable income). I can just imagine the AI response if someone posted a new car thread with a tiptronic Ruf.

There's a pristine white and orange example in a GPS store near me. I guess it's a conversation piece.
The switchgear is where the left doorsill should be, 3 forward gears.
I remember the pedals being these flimsy little things. It's about wide enough to seat two people who haven't been on a bier and braten diet.
