    Hennessey Cts-v being loaded aggressively

    I really don't know what to make of this, but you guys should take a look.

    Seems as though it's not his car so he doesn't really care too much how he loads the car up. Interesting to say the least.

    Sounds great! Have you ever tried to get a manual on a set of ramps in your garage before?? I imagine this must be even harder.

    I was kinda sorta ok with everything that was going on until he hit the Mercedes in the last part of the video.

    LOL. At least that company uses professional drivers.

    BTW, it's not hard to load a manual car up ramps if you know how to drive.

    An automatic is easier to get to that 6" sweet spot on the ramps than a manual; for me at least. Although i never claimed to know how to drive so it must just be me! Lol

    Re: Hennessey Cts-v being loaded aggressively

    I transport cars for a living and that is why I stay so busy I have a 3/4 car trailer that has lots of room between cars. I loaded a lowered c6 with a 408ci and f1 and nos 1000rwhp and sat on the ground and I had no isues and my trailer is steper. This guy could not drive. But I do have a c5 with a 600+ lift cam that helps.

    Hitting car in front....fail! Those guys would be paying for the scratches on my V if I saw them do that. Definitely not cool. Why would anyone post a video of a transport mishap anyway, for the owner to find?

    Car sounds absolutely sick though.

    Re: Hennessey Cts-v being loaded aggressively

    afaik, most car transportation carriers do not have to report damage that is $500 or less.

    it did look like a light 'tap'
    assuming there's no front plate and because we're talking about plastic front/rear bumpers, best case scenario is that it's just some light scuffs that can be polised out. In which case/ no action necessary on the guy that just rammed the V into the merc.

    If you're going to load cars onto a carrier, being able to drive should not be optional.

    Every time I gave cars to people for something they broke or damaged something.
    Most just don't give a sh*t unfortunately.
