    What’s the shifting points of a 6 speed? I have to retake my cdl but it’s in a 6 speed. Any difference?

    I’d imagine a bigger rpm drop between gears . I never saw a highway truck with a 6 speed .

    Apparently they said it’s like driving a car Manuel but it’s a day cab

    I actually do think it’s a Mack I saw a Mack in their yard.

    maxitorque 6 speeds were big back in the day, really depends on which model OP is driving though may just be a regular 6 speed like a pick up truck
