Nice catches! Random observation, but I notice one of the FedEx Freight KW's is passing another truck. Do the triples tractors have additional power compared to the regular Freight units. I imagine it has to have a decent amount pulling that much weight and also being able to pass a slower truck. I'm sure the company units have some kind of electronic limiter installed, but still, just curious. That being said, I've had FedEx Ground double units blow past me easily doing 75+  ;D ;D

FXG are pretty much all O/Os or small companies leased on to FXG while FXF is all company drivers. That said the FXG folks aren't subject to speed limiters or the like.

That's what I thought, though that being said the vast majority of FXG drivers I see are very safe and courteous.
