I simply cannot relate to driving on the left side of the road. I'm thinking "head on crash!" Nice video and music.

I liked the passing zone at 1:45 (filled with Sprinter impeding 2 cars)

Is that in Taz? If, so (heck, if not, too) where is it? (so i can plan my trip to include it)
Answered my own question: Queenstown, Taz.

thanks

To answer the *question*: 14.8 seconds for 0 - 100km/h (0 - 60 mph).
Per: http://blogs.insideline.com/straight...nter-2500.html

as for the "99 bends", in Utah we have the Moki Dugway.
A "dugway" is a road carved in the side of a cliff/butte/mesa by driving a bulldozer through, and letting the sidewall be the dirt pushed aside by the blade... a "dug way".
I went down it in my 2500 last May. Quite fun.
Here's the down-trip:


Or, in two parts (frightened cameraman):
