just had my first drive in it today..very nice cab but body-roll when fully loaded is alarming
you asked about restrictors..well i imagine you all get frustrated sitting behind two lorries overtaking for what seems like an age..thats because they are both restricted with maybe only 1 mph difference between them.
vospa's latest rules that apply next year on selected roads will outlaw any lorry over 7.5 tonnes from overtaking to stop the above mentioned problem...but instead you will be left with the inside lane on motorways/dual carriageways being hogged by trucks making it harder for cars to come onto/leave at junctions.
also fromnext year all vehicles over 5 tonnes will be restricted to 55mph.
its only a matter of time before the nanny state applies this to cars.
