Johnny just called me with the "blow-by-blow" details. His holding the camera while throttling reminds me of a kilo we once ran where he did the same thing


Consistancy is a beautiful thing..

Either way very cool and I got kinda nervous when JT was saying "go left, go left " at around 190 mph !!!


GREAT JOB !!!!
I can answer this one. The last week or so was spent getting that MTI ready to haul AZZ! They didn't bother taking the time to install the transmissions.
