And if he had 11R22.5 tires RPM would be even higher.
But ole Deeetroit Williams turned it up for him!

I have deleted the personal criticism comments towards this member and deleted a few posts form this thread.
But there appears to be value in the thread content.

To be truthful I could not continue watching the video. I was concerned for my safety and mental health.

I'm with Bill..no need for insults...education is better. We were all young and full of it at one time. A few folks commented on FB and his response was in case of trouble..like a blow out...He would put down the phone and drive the bus...HA! Good luck! Somewhere recently....I saw pictures of a blow out in WB/PT , but cant find it again. It appeared he was lucky to have the wall to help control the situation.
Those speeds...mountains....vintage equipment is asking for a bad outcome in case of trouble......hopefully some innocent family doesn't help share his debt.

I just want to see the 104mph video. I would pay for that, on a closed road in Mexico, of course.

I just came thru West Virginia last week. Anyone notice the yellow directional signs on the side of the road ? They put those on downhil grades so you know which way the road turns when you are traveling at night! They don’t put them on uphill climbs! JMHO .
