    Default Canadian Tire Builds Ice Truck That Drives

    Canadian Tire built a (GMC Sierra?) pickup truck using 11,000 lbs of ice to demonstrate the toughness of its Eliminator battery. This is badass!

    Pretty cool... but how does it prove ANYTHING about the battery..? Maybe if they froze the truck to -50/-60 with the battery and then tried to start it.

    I have that battery in my car, and let me tell you, it has not given me any issues with the extreme cold we've had. It never even gave signs of dying....basically cranked it with no hesitation.
