    when its firing like that its under launch control, so producing full boost at a low rpm.

    its a track option.i will rarely use that out on the streets.

    it normally wont shoot that much fire

    From Wikipedia:
    Beaker is a magnet for disaster; he routinely experiences mishaps such as being blown up, electrocuted, eaten by large monsters.

    I'm going to add "or killed by a monster VW beetle". ;)

    first few drives went ok. have some kinks to work out but all in all its not bad. lots of stuff need calibration still.

    -my oil pressure/temp gauge is set for a water cooled engine, so my oil temps get much higher. need to fix that because it just blows off the chart.
    -i need a high speed starter that dosent shit the bed when im cranking it over or it gets hot
    -crank fire trigger wheel needs to be bolted to the actual pully wheel so it dosent skip time again on me.
    -im having some serious throttle cable issues. wasent getting full pedel use then i was but its binding up somewhere and being a pos. i think were gonna switch to a drive by wire setup

    Just checking in to see if anyone has given any thought to funeral arrangements?

    I don't really want to plan the whole thing, but I can have the wife make some sandwiches/cookies or something. Just let me know if someone wants to take the lead on this one...

    I'll put 0% effort into his funeral, and I probably won't attend, but tag me in some Facebook pics.


    Edit: don't tag me
