    You guys are silly...

    But I know I need to get some video up, even forgot about this thread because its been so long.

    Aaand I am bored with the power, needs more.

    I will try and get my wife to use her good camera since mine isnt very good for video. I have absolutely no vids of the truck at all, and its been a while. I want some even for me to watch, never seen my truck run because I am always driving!

    I just drive it every day so the fun factor wore off already, lol. So that can mean only one thing! Boost!
    Problem is I have been racing off-road motorcycles a LOT so thats taking all my time and money from the truck project.

    But I got a new GoPro a month ago since I lost my old one racing in a National hare and Hound (motorcycle) and just got a new one for my Bday. I'll get something together.

    I'd get smoked, I only have around 330hp. But when the snail finds its new home should be double that at the wheels. Thats when the magic happens.

    I am still debating doing this. I wonder how much fun/fast it would be for all the effort it takes. Doesn't seem that simple of a swap....

    Its by no means simple, there is a reason you dont see them, I never saw a completed one before I finished mine.
    Its running like crap right now, I think this is giving me a reason to crack it open...even though it probably just needs a set of plugs, lol.

    Taking a bit longer, I broke my GoPro in an off-road race...I siliconed a new glass lense on it hopefully it still works, even broke my Gdamn helmet hitting the ground so hard!

    Silicone is still curing, just did it this morning, the siliconing I mean.
