Thanks the more the merrier.

I have some leveling sand for the area, if I need more both Lowes and Home Depot are pretty close.

I could not find the odor crystals that you were talking about though. Lowes did not carry them and Home Depot carries a different brand of grass, and they did not have any from what I saw.

Can't remember if I posted this video or not yet. Obviously I need to work on trigger control(marn knows what I'm talking about) and this is actually a few videos edited together. I'm not that bad of a shot(promise) It does show the difference in power between 45 and 357 Mag in an easy way to compare!

Holy crap! Last night was the first problem free night I've had working on the race truck since the race. It's back on the ground finally and at the point where I could have it ready to race in about an hour or two of work but it's not done yet. Getting close finally! I might just have to have a small party when it's actually done and I park it out of my garage! LOL Next up for it, build a new transmission crossmember and cut off a bunch of stuff on the rear part so that I can redo the spare tire mount setup on it. Then button up the interior and it's done!!! I'll then take a couple evenings off and do NOTHING... Well, actually I might try and get my *** back in the gym with the race truck out of my life for a bit! But then very shortly after that I'll be pulling in the expo and getting started on it! Crossing my fingers for a successful weekend shopping for exploder and toyota parts!

Anyone want to buy some excessive bumpsteer?

http://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/cto/3615521594.html





and I totally just realized how much time I've wasted on the race truck and other older projects that involved wiring! A lot of times I'd weld just a simple 1/4" bolt to a cab or cage tube and then use that as a point to attach ground lugs to using a nyloc nut. After seeing this picture though I just realized how much faster and easier this method is!

I really have no idea how that steering set-up could even hope to work.

Aside from that, the only downside to the ground lug I can see might be a little more resistance. It might be worth it to sand the coating on the tube or maybe add a bigger fuse.

Nice wiring. I guess it really depends on the load that will be on the wire. If it was just a little light or something, I think that would be good. But anything else and you would run into issues.
