    I'm going to be driving my friends super 10, what should I know. I never driven one before but I pulled an end dump for a couple years.

    Instead of throwing the gear lever to change gears & use air splitter to move between lo & hi-range you flip the splitter to move from even to odd gears. You only throw the stick on every other gear.

    Say you start in starting gear (1 or 2). Accelerate, at RPM where you would shift gears, flip splitter, lift off "gas" pedal, then mash on gas pedal. At RPM to shift gears, lift on gas, while in between gear position drop the splitter to low and put the stick in next slot. Accelerate, at RPM for shift, lift and flip the splitter.

    Until you are used to it don't skip any gears and plan on stopping at every traffic light. You use the splitter on every other gear shifting up & down, you throw the stick half as often as the 9/10 speed.

    10 wheeler with a strong arm?

    Watch how you take turns. Fully loaded it’ll be top heavy.

    Drive it like the high side if a 13/18. Or if you ever drove a single axle with a two soeed rear.

    You can split each gear instead of having a range sector in the "middle". They are nice.
