All of this footage was captured using Tesla Dashcam (Teslacam) and Tesla Sentry Mode.
Rollin’ coal was funny for about 5 seconds a decade ago.
So, let’s tackle the subject of what “rolling coal” actually is. First, and it’s clear in the video’s introduction, it is an illegal act that is punishable by various fines. Second, in order to roll coal, the vehicle must be diesel-powered and have been modified in one or more ways. Most who modify their truck will tell you it’s for more power but, after watching the video, we’d have to think the large clouds of black and grey smoke are a happy side-effect.
In the video posted on Wham Baam Teslacam YouTube’s channel, the heavy- and super-duty truck owners seem intent on simply sending a “message” of some sort that they are idiots for driving an electric Tesla. By carefully studying the way some of these trucks are driven, we have a different opinion on who the idiot is.
We enjoyed the 3:51 video however we wish that all the Tesla drivers would, if possible and safely, blow the doors off of the trucks. At around 1:14, Jeremy Venturino takes matters into his hands and passes ahead before the Ford Super Duty does anything stupider. Craig Hart, at the 2:50 mark, had the right idea when the Ram Heavy Duty closes in on him but he backed off…
We don’t condone speeding but somehow “smoking” these truck drivers (aptly referred to in the song BTW…) thanks to instant electric Tesla power would be immensely satisfying.
