They go by the name TC1000
They are a smaller version of the TC2000 full size bus.
The TC100 still has just as many ribs as a full size, they simply cut every second rib to install the bigger windows. Same thing gets done with the full size when installing larger, non school bus windows.
Main difference is the bus uses fiberglass front and rear caps, vs the steel of the full size. Other differences include a lower power rating from the 5.9 Cummins engine they all use. The full size TC2000 is 190hp and this TC1000 is 160hp.
The TC1000 also have no wheel wells inside the bus. This means a perfectly flat floor, with nothing in the way of your conversion.
The tires are commercial 19.5 rubber. They used them so they didn't have wheel wells in the bus. To overcome the smaller diameter, they just use a higher gear ratio in the rear axle. Nothing wrong with the 19.5 tires or suspension.
Best thing I like about them is the short turning circle. The three TC1000 buses we have at the shop have 50 degree's of steering, meaning they will turn in their own length. Very easy to turn around when diving down streets.
So there you have it. Some real feedback from someone who has driven one.
They are good little buses. I would like to own one myself to make into a 4x4 or tracked unit for exploring the wilderness.
