The issue is Ram doesnt offer a 10 speed. The day they do, and 12V98 owns one which will be very close to the same time, all will be better here on this forum. He knows that more gears is generally better, Ram is 4 gears short of the other two, currently. Since Ram is behind the curve in this respect, the only option for him is to discredit the guys with more gears. Its important to him that Ram leads in every aspect. So until there is gear parady, and Ram owns the IKE this will continue. Once they make runs at full capacity if Ram wins, then we will hear about Ram domination regardless of having 4 gears tied behind its bumper. If GM and or Ford beat Ram, but the win is not dominate enough (he decides what that is) then the winner (s) are not legit because the gap was too close given the gear advantage. Interesting world he lives in.


Additional gears are not as necessary with the Cummins. The Cummins has a 33% torque rise where as the Duramax has only 9% and the new Powerstroke has an 18% rise.


All of our Prevost H3-45 motor coaches have the Volvo D13 inline 6 cylinder diesel with an output of 500 hp and 1850 ft/lb of torque. All of them use 6-speed Allison transmissions.

I don't know the weight of your rig but 600 horses would pull quite a chariot up a hill.

With 12 gears you're engine is always going to be at an optimum rpm for whatever you're doing .... cruising, climbing or anything in between, but, when 64k meets a long 8% grade you'll be chugging up the hill right along side Cummins at 30-35 mph saying I think I can I think I can.
