  1. I'll look into getting one done eventually; I really like their AN460s and older AN440s
  2. Yep! Wow, I had never thought of that before! Yeah, the proxy could definitely be a lifesaver with dealer only stuff, as long as it's operational and not VIN-stopped! We'll definitely have to look more into that The low 2200s and 2600s will definitely be worth looking out for on any future Santa Cruz trips, as they're both somewhat rare and definitely have C gas! As long as they aren't governed at 65 though XD
  3. Glad the three of us are finally in one place. Yeah CARB and first crapitol are always trying to pull one kinda BS or another I really hope the next auctions won't be dealer/out of state only, especially since I hope some D40LFs will be saved too, but after CARB stopped requiring VIN stops we just never know I didn't record any originals sadly, but 2202 does sound a lot more like a regular C gas like the ones in San Diego! The video's a bit hard to find:
  4. I rode Westcat 115, 2002 Gillig Phantom with Cummins ISM/ Voith, at 77 mph (124 km/h) a couple weeks ago
  5. everything is explained in the video description
  6. Santa Clara VTA Gillig low floor 2042 was uncapped and hit 72 mph (just short of 120 km/h) with Voith screaming a couple days ago, and same for 2232 earlier
  7. favorite ETI: 5482, since it used to be musical favorite neoplan: 8113, since it hauls ass
  8. Which phantoms? SCVTA 1036 and 2235 both did 70 mph easily, but were capped. 2201 was capped at 65 though
  9. Strange, I'm not getting anything, are you sure you sent a friend request to the right Facebook? It's this one: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100012003545483 I didn't have time to go this weekend but I have Tuesday off so I can go over to SF, but I'm probably gonna take a ride on the light rail instead just to try it out
  10. I finally got a trolleybus that hauled some serious @$$! It hit 40mph 3 times and did 0-40 in 15 seconds once! This was coming out of Ocean Beach so slightly uphill too!
  11. Yeah I made a 1:200 scale one: http://shpws.me/MbBs Should I make an O scale version?
  12. If only they made some for N scale! I would definitely buy several of them! I almost forgot to post my compobuses: I'm also working on some 14trSF trolleybuses but they may be my last buses in a long time since I'm in college now and time is a lot tighter EDIT: I can't figure out how to insert a video
