It really is the downhill that is hard IMO!

Semis normally going about 15-25 mph depending on the load.
Tranny temp stayed well below 200.
Engine temp rose to about 230 then after the crest it came right down.

We messed around with phriends yesterday till about 330 then we loaded up an pulled an hour and a half home.

Intersting enough they have two 6% grades leaving town an one being two miles long the ole duramax held 55mph all the way!
And of course you conveniently failed to mention that the two grades were downhill.
