Hey,

Yeah, there were a few ways I was aware that I could have made that video better. Ideally you'd have been able to see the gear lever and the truck moving in relation to the ground as well as the tach, but you get what you pay for! At least anyone who has ever paid any attention to the way an engine sounds when it is under load as opposed to simply being revved up while idling will know that the truck was indeed moving!

I'll write up the next trip this week. There are 5 videos to go with it so I have to get them all uploaded first...

Cheers.
