Re: Can a transit bus be made to go faster for highway speed
transits with something like a detroit will not go faster by much if they are the 55mph busses.the engine cant be turned up... the reason is that the rear axle ratio is wrong for the freeway.. i know, i sold a freeway v-drive rear axle geared for the highway to a guy who had one geared for the city. they do make transits geared for the highway, best to buy one of those. you can change out the rear axle, but they are heavy...and it was a lot of work to remove the one i sold....
transits can go into most small campgrounds. the one i had, i went into most places that were made for shorter trailers. the turning radius on some transits is good, depending on the wheelbase length.
