Any idea about the "40-60" passing time.
If I was in Alabama now I would love to come out and give you a hand with some of the work but Im in Cali now
man that is so funny LOL i did not see your post in tell after i just got back with the 2ed drive test
so i had it set for today latter at night around 9:00 pm to take it out on the open road .... here where i live there is no cars at that time ....
get the last of the wiring all most done and michelle comes up gerr take me to the ER .... so i take her med day ... and she gets back out 7 hrs latter ... PS michelle is ok its just life for her to be in and out
so we get home and jump right in to the RV Gopro in had ....
but on the Gopro the mic was not pluged in all the way so there is no sound at all to my 1 hr of video
i DO have video and was going to edit and upload it to night
but i guess i well take some more video tomorrow on how things are going and upload it tomorrow
humm video with no sound 3X the speed add topgun Music and
never mind LOL
but really the RV did a very good job last night and i did not want to push it to hard at first but at the end of the night when i was sure every thing was ok i did push it hard and did see how fast it would go out of the red lights and it did get up and move and got to 60 mpr in no time even knowing the speed limits where i was 45 and 55
but as for a top speed i am sure i can do 75 or more
its hard to see in the video but i was holding 1800 RPM at 59 MPR and it just dropped in to 5th gear
i all so need to make sure my MPR is set right i feel i was going faster then what i was being told .. but i am sure we all get that feeling
but some of my cluster setting are still set to the GM 350 motor
one more good or bad thing not sure the temp is not going over 179
its not stuck it moves
i have never know any year 8.1 to have any thing under a 190 thermostat
and every thing stayed cool under the hood
