my question is kind of stupid but ok..

why do big trucks (like dump trucks) take off faster from a stop than cars do?

Interesting question...to be honest i have not noticed it...but let me try to answer and i think that the diver at the time would have had the vehicle engaged to move at the first change of the light. I have done it before and this is why it seems to happen.

There are some people i know who would actually put their cars in neutral under the stop lights and then shift it into gear when the lights change.

Trucks in general use diesel fuel which is economical (slow burning) which means the vehicle is sometimes slow to move out.

that makes a lot of sense. its scary when you're behind them and the truck starts jerking like its going to fall apart. i had a few chunks of mud mixed with small rocks hit my windshield recently. now i really do use a "car length" when im behind one

i slam the gas pedal as soon as the light turns green Lol! XD.. nah, i look to my right then left and i then i floor it

understood :-)

Well a lot of "regular" drivers don't know that they shouldn't ride to close behind or on the side of these large vehicles because they have large blind spots..that is why they take off so quickly before their is an issue..you should never slam on the gas pedal near them..let them pass..they cannot see you if you or they decide to make so swift turn or something..

I'm multitasking on a precious metal site debating on gold or silver. Both are at an excellent price. Silver is better in the long run.
