Project Update # 6 ( Plan-B )

My departure date came,I left,but without trailer,and only went as far as Las Cruces,New Mexico.---------- With 186 man-hours into the project I wasn't anywhere near completion and now have moved my new deadline to Christmas holiday season.---------- I have a week and a half before I go back to work.With liberal scratching of my pin head,I guestimate an additional 120-150 man-hours to pull everything together.--------- I did do a 1,349-mile baseline run with the new "racing" tires and altered gearing to help me nail down "trailerless" performance which will help separate out future numbers with the trailer in tow.The T-100 hit a new high for highway mpg,I'll post a new thread on that.Looks like 40-mpg is doable under best conditions.
