I am rarely in a hurry to get somewhere - so there is no need to push it. I am all about enjoying the drive.
It seems to have been geared nicely for mountain driving - so I have solid power when I need it.
what gear do you have in the rear axle and what did christopher do to make it better

I have no idea what the rear gear is - Christopher just open the speed control from 65 to 80 - which has helped.

I remember when we looked at oyurs i was thinking it is the ideal gearing.. you have the allison 2000 Overdrive trans.. and i thought a 4.44 gear? to me that bus has the ideal setup for a 444E drivetrain.. I dont think I saved a snapshot of your computer, if i did i priobably emailed or texted it to you.
