Obviously, that's why road trains are limited to Australia. This one actually has Australian license plates. As for friendly rivalry - I don't feel the need to be anyone's rival, thanks, just "friendly" suffices.
Wow, what can I say except that this is one of the nicest LEGO rigs that I've ever seen on here. Also, you not only incorporated the NXT motors well but you also have two different control scheme options as well, something that I've never seen done before on any MOC, let alone the second one utilizing a video game controller and even though said controller is not considered as a true LEGO element by purists, I frankly don't care and LEGO makes video games as well, even for computer systems, so I consider the video game controller as an additional LEGO element. By the way, since you've got a video on YouTube, why not check out the stuff that a fellow YouTube member (and fellow MOC Pages member) by the name of sephirot8082 had built on both YouTube and on MOC Pages? I'm sure that the both of you will have quite the nice friendly rivalry soon. Don't worry, I'll tell him to check you out and besides, he also builds Kenworth trucks, too. Also, the closest thing that I saw to a road train is when they have two full length trailers or three half-length trailers that are connected to a rig. To top that all off, most states in the US won't even allow for such a configuration, so a road train, amazing that it is, simply would be considered as an illegal tractor trailer configuration in my country.
As for the looks it's nothing that hasn't been seen before although it does have some pretty great details in chrome and a cool color design altogether but the functions... I am speechless. You always seem to do stuff in LEGO many of us think are impossible to do.
So much chrome! The trailers are awesome. The Cumin's engine is nicely detailed and the turn signals with the indicators in the dashboard are awesome. The paint scheme is cool. The video is done well. A well earned 5 of 5.
I like it

I think epic is an understatement. I haven't seen someone use NXT like that before, and on top of that, create such a detailed and accurate model. I think it is one for the record books, and I would honestly say, that to all, this is a "free lesson". 100/100
Just immense, man! I like the paint scheme, and all that shiny chrome. Plenty of chrome, indeed. The working lights and signals are great, and the NXT workings are excellent! I like that you hooked it up to a gaming controller, they're much more comfortable to hold than Lego's tiny IR remotes. And you could button mash! =P
Sariel, I think you've made an exquisite model here. You went above and beyond with the lights, turn signals, and stickers. Controlling this with a game controller is just icing on the cake. I really like your video. I think your score is 1/0 ;)
