Roaring!! - Dublin Bus Volvo B7TL AV345

Hill Climb Dublin Bus Volvo B7TL AV252
About 2 weeks ago you may have seen my vid of troublesome AV250. AV250 wasn't going anywhere, so I waited for the next 15B to Stocking Avenue if it was an AV. It turned out to be AV252! AV252 has a loud diff along with whistling speakers which makes a really nice sound. Note at 3:05 it didn't down shift to 1st gear. AV'/AX's only downshift after that slight Rev few seconds later. The best part was when the driver let me in the driver seat and explained all the controls! 2/08/16. 2:19 - Really lovely sound! 3:30+ - Hill Climb

Badly Slipping Enviro 400 B9TL [Sound]
Unfortunately due to the audio setting, the audio quality is poor. This EV sounded like it was slipping. It was really sluggish and restricted to only 2nd gear. Driver can be heard calling control centre at 1:21. At 5:50 the driver was able to magically fix it and after that it goes back to standard. Some good examples of it slipping are: 1:39-2:12, 2:19-4:10, 4:44-4:55 Details: Dublin Bus Enviro 400 Volvo B9TL (EV1-8 (can't remember)) Recorded: May 17, 2015
