Robert: I sent you an email.

 

For others interested: Before I made the Megabusa street legal, I sold the factory reverse box & lever assembly to Tom McClintock over at Manik Technologies as a spare for other Megabusa owners. I still have both factory driveshafts that bolt between the engine/reverse box/rear differential. The driveshafts, as well as all other spare parts from the kit that I didn't use, will go along with the Megabusa at no charge. Simply purchase the reverse box & lever assembly from Tom and everything will bolt up like the factory kit.

Hank,

You must have hit the "Loto" or have an oil well or really deep pockets to carry off that kind of money :rofl: so what is your secret.....a rich wife or girl friend :smilielol5: or you own the local Hooters you sly dog.

I only wish I could convince my other half to let me have another car to play with but I have to get rid of one or two of my toys if I where to even consider looking at another vehicle now.

 

Your a lucky guy.

You gotta love the GT500. They are suppose to be great on the track. I would be scared to track one if I was fortunate enough to own one. I admire the folks that are brave enough to really drive those type of machines to the limit.

Are you scared because it's too much power or scared still a straight line car not suitable for road racing?

On a track, I'd be scared to wreck it as the car insurance company wouldn't pay for it. Now if your paying cash...

I think doing one of those "fastest mile" type events would be cool with 650HP.

Congrats on the sale Hank.

 

I'd be scared of damaging a expensive somewhat limited production car. From everything I've read about them they are excellent track cars. I'm sure it's a hoot in a straight line too. A top and AC are a nice option on occasions. The new ZL1 Camaro are nice too.

Thanks to Hank for all of help with the sale. I am the new caretaker of Hank's Megabusa and hope to enjoy it on street and track for years to come. Back safely in Castle Pines, Colorado after a long journey!

 

Left here on Saturday via Salina KS, Wichita KS, Oklahoma City OK, finally rest stop in Plano TX. 850 mile alone in a Volvo XC90 2.5T. Pappasitos fajitas at 11 am on Sunday and on the road to Baton Rouge for an easy 450 mile jaunt. Averaged 20 mpg at 70 mph average speed. This will matter later.

 

Next morning, little sleep of course, met Hank and drove the Megabusa. Everything I expected and Hank was a true gentleman and had everything sorted. Thanks again, Hank!

 

After test drive, load, bank, etc. on the road with the XC90 and trailer combo. Keep in mind I have never towed a trailer before, let alone on a 1200 mile road trip, but set off in good stead yet cautious. Needless to say, performance reduced. Shocked to see 10.5 mpg! This meant gas stops every 130 miles to ensure I didn't run out of gas in rural LA/TX. Made it to Childress TX by 12.30 am after fun drive thru Dallas with multiple detours, luckily trailer still in one piece. I am sure everyone here recognizes how bloody hot it has been! 100 degrees plus all day for the four trip days. What is amazing is that not a single hiccup with the 90,000 mile plus XC90 - got many comments about a Volvo towing a trailer!

 

Today did Amarillo TX, Raton NM, Pueblo CO, Colorado Springs CO (and witnessed the terrible fires so close to the city and destroying homes, very scary) and back home to my family happy to be back in one piece and no damage to property! Tow averages were 10.3 mpg and 55 mph average speed. Then again I can blame some of the differential on altitude differential - Baton Rouge close to sea level, Castle Pines 6500 feet.

 

Which leads me to my final point... If I run out of talent mid corner, or the car just isn't fast enough, I'll blame it on the altitude. Until of course I put a turbo on it... Glad to be here, think I might need a new username soon.
