In a bus he just bought!

I ready could care less how he ends his life but wielding a 30 year old....20 ton vehicle like a video game and gambling the lives of others does.

WOW...I think I'm gonna yank out my 8V92 and put in a 6V. Since I can't even approach 80 MPH up a 6% grade. Even with bigger injectors I installed, no muffler, and bigger air intake. (Not that I wanna drive that fast anyway)

He's gotta be going downhill in that video!

I've run next to Rich Alexander in his 6V up some hills in VA. I pass right by him even towing my 12,000 lb trailer.
(Had to throw him a rope to keep up LOL)

If we could find out if he is a HAM, we got APRS. Real time tracking. I won't use the one radio I have because of that.

This guys claims to have a top speed of 104 MPH.
Assuming a 3.42 rear ratio and a 1.1 final trans ratio (no overdrive)
With a 12R22.5 tire that's 44" tall he would be running nearly 3000 RPM. Well past the governor limit.

And if he had 11R22.5 tires RPM would be even higher.
