    Re: Reality TV Lies?

    I wonder if they were hydro-vac brakes. I think that's what they were called anyway, was about 40 years ago so I might be mistaken. They were not air brakes vaccum assist hydraulic brakes, more powerful than power brakes on cars and light trucks. I remember driving an 72 IH cabover 28' straight truck that had those type brakes. If you pumped them too much you would lose the power assist.
