Everybody seems to have a preference for transmissions. Which one is most popular and which do you prefer?
Honestly, when was the last time you EVER split any gear in the bottom end? Unless you are specialized 120,000 lbs the is really no need too. They do have autoshift 18 speeds now. 13's, 12's, 10's.... I've been reading about going back to 9 speeds for OTR trucks. I started in '76 with 8 gears. Things sure have changed, the new trucks shift 900 to 1100 RPM and cruise at 70 mph at 1250. A hot rod truck was 250HP, now fleet trucks start at 400hp.I have never heard anyone complain that they have too many gears
