My 300hp Cummins mechanical produces @860 ft lbs of Torque.

We go up steep West Coast grades at 35 mph while the engine pushes and pulls a total of 36,000 lbs.

We have never failed to reach the top of a grade.

Lol, yes any time you crest a hill and you are still moving forward at any speed you are good. It's that, I'm stopped along the side of the road thing that hurts.
