    Ha, ha...
    110kph, was the cruse. I still have not found a top speed for my unit under any load. It will burry the speedo.
    The most fun is climbing a large grade hill on the highway. It's hard to just maintain speed. I'm either slowing or accelerating...I can control the boost level though, but it is a very fine feather, on the pedal between 7psi and 3psi of boost, but it CAN be controled off the pedal.
    It's just more fun to floor it, and let the truck do it's thing...

    Last spring hauled a yard of top soil. My mitsubichi didn't like me much for it and braking was an issue. Loved being able drive over the curb into my yard and offload the soil directly into the garden.
     
  4. Hauled 28 tons of 4" minus up a fourwheeler trail... custom built box to save the truck weighs around 500 lbs. The yard of rock weighs 2500 - 3000lbs. More impressive than the truck being able to handle that load time after time was the 1 ply Chinese made tires on the truck. Going back on a trail that is nothing but rock and roots and the tires didn't let me down. Amazing!

    Yikes! Yes, you're right. I'm amazed the tires held up. Really.

    I pulled a F150 out of the mud, started out kind of hard to do until I relized that he hadn't took out of park yet. Once he put the F150 in neutral it came out real easy....just wish I could have gotten a picture of it.
