    I'm not quiet sure what i'm doing wrong, but driving the HST Turbo passenger service has become a challenge for me , I can get the engine started only to realize 5 mins into service run the speed starts to 'slow' down, even going downgrade! in 'MAX' throttle. Don't think it's a 'bug' I did notice this after this latest 'update',..but it could be me missing something. any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    HST is Class 43, Networker Turbo - Class 165/166, so which one do you mean?

    Sorry! for not being specific, it is the Class 166. NOTE: Also I went to do another service with the same engine running the same direction (toward Reading), and to my surprise with throttle 'Maxed' I got 122! Why would there be a difference between the two services?

    You got a Turbo to do 122 mph?

    So I guess what you're saying is that the outsides look the same but, one is a Turbo and one is not! Ok! Thanks.
