    I'm surprised you didn't throw a rod when you were redlining your engine in that vid. Crazy shit.

    Me too, but Im not surprised that I blew first gear of my tranny, had to get it replaced the next day, haha, for free tho cuz it was under warranty and I did a real nice job cleaning my taco before taking her to the dealership.;)

    And also, sorry if some of the pics arent showing up, imagecave is screwing with me and im trying to fix them. They might just fix themselves. If not, ima have to move everything to photobucket which is gonna suck.

    Yea, according to the faq on imagecave, if my pics are viewed too many times in one day, they freeze it for the day, then unfreeze it the next day. I guess imagecave is gay that way. If i have time i'll gradually switch over to photobucket. Til then, keep checking back! Thanks for all the comments!
