    Can't find anybody smart enough to shift even a super 10 without wrecking the thing anymore apparently, kinda sad.

    I think soon they will put a app on the driver's smart phone to do the button pushing by voice.

    "Walk on" and off it goes.

    Simple solution if you want to shift. Don’t drive for Werner.

    It won't be long, class 8 trucks will be like passenger vehicles. Automated will be standard. If you want a manual, you'll have to pay for it, because it'll be an option.

    I let the computers shift the grears. The computers tells me when I can drive and when I need rest. The GPS computer tells when to turn and how far it is.
