Did you like it? Do you prefer it?

My new job has me has me hauling mail on a 90mi rout with one drop. The rig they've given me is a 2004 international (still prefer freight liner) fitted with a super 10. After a week of use I really couldn't care less if I had the super or reg 10.

If you never heard of a super 10 it is basically a transmission that forces you to float shift most of the time. The flipper is set to the side, for thumb use rather than finger use, and you must only rev the engine to shift between gears 1&2, 3&4, 5&6, 7&8, 9&10. Each gear pair reside in the same slot.

The stick never moves between those gears. You Just flip the thumb switch and the rig finds the next gear. Almost like having an automatic in a way.

I have, it's more like driving a single range of an 18speed. I liked it. Hate the shift pattern of a 10 speed. Guess because I learned on a 13 speed and have mostly driven 18.

We had super 10 and straight 10s back when I was in truck driving school, I actually preferred the super once I learned what I was doing. I drive a straight 10 now and would gladly switch, maybe I'm just an oddball though haha
