Wanted to give an update on the BBOE. Got my new tyranny In. I like it better for sure, much more usable gears now. 1st 2nd and 3rd are all much much more usable. I bet I gained 10 plus MPH in those gears and 4th is nearly identical, I may have gained about 5mph...

I also like the smaller I think ring gear?? The bus doesn't buck up on its tip toes as bad or as hard.. It's even better to drive now...

One bad thing... Corporate won't stop bugging me that I should not sell this bus... #-o

Back to the compound.. =D> =D> =D> =D> Damn this bus drives even better than it did....

I had 4.12 r/p with the regular bus 4th, .082
Now, I have a 3.88 with a beetle 4th, .89

it doesn't jump up on the stop so bad.. like the engine has to work a tad harder cause the r/p to get her moving... Wink Wink Wink Wink
