    You're either yanking our chain or precisely the reason auto trucks are so common.

    My favorite part was about how it got “so hard to go up the hill for like 10 or 20 miles”. lol. That’s just awesome.

    Honestly, if your posts are real, you need more training. Whoever gave you your license and cut you loose solo should have their license pulled as well.

    A lot of less experienced drivers would have pulled over at the slightest sign of catastrophic mechanical failure.

    Not an endorsement. It's a restriction

    You noticed it working hard and lots of smoke, and didn't stop to see what the hell was going on? Then you essentially slam shifted it off the road? I better shut up.
