Want a bigger engine

I want a bigger engine, but there's a point where an engine might be TOO big for a bus:



Wonder if Allison makes a transmission that will work with that?

As a level 1 burglar, Bilbo got a pony when he accompanied the level 60 dwarves on the Smaug the Dragon raid. Those powerlevelers probably invited him solely so he could trigger fellowship attacks for them.

The 1200 KW version burns 100 gallons an hour at full tilt, we had one at work for a week after a flood took out our switch gear

I don't doubt it one bit.... those big engines will suck some fuel down for sure.
