I have a PT35 with a 6v92 and can't come close to that kind of performance. With this much added performance, how could you keep it cool pulling a grade like that?

I top out at 78 MPH. Does he have an extra gear or is the governor turned way up?

Sounded like he said he had work done. He mentioned the shop by name while flying up the hill. I feel hinky doing 80.

You can see him let off the throttle by the drop in boost and the speed just keeps going up. He's obviously coasting down a steep grade.

Why would anyone do this in a 40K lb vehicle, distracted using his recording device, crossing over the centerline a number of times. I want to make sure I remember this video, because if I hear about this guy driving a Bird and causing an accident I will find out who the victim is and send him a copy of this!!!! He can then give it to his attorney.

Those tires are not rated for speeds like that! Plus as Andy said, it’s not an engine performance when you are coasting downhill with a 40lb. bus!
