    You might want to spread that around to some of the speed limiter threads out there or start a new thread altogether.

    Its fine, its overrated though, 3406e for my preference on a cat. I like and know my cat, i dont know cummins or detroit and they can be had cheaper, thats not me saying cat is better, its just what i know.

    Petitions do nothing, democracy is an illusion, we are and have been a technocracy/oligarchy for ages, if that ever mattered, the comment period and comments would change what and how fmcsa does things.

    So far the best pulling trucks I've driven had CAT engines so I think I agree. The Detroits and Cummins have felt a bit lacking. Could have been those trucks or perhaps just me idk but I think you're right.
