Tom, please keep us updated on whatever project it is.
(that's the nicest I can do. )



On a side note, got a PM from our buddy Phil this morning.
His message...
We still have no power, and are out of food, ice and almost gas. They say it may be another couple of weeks before we get power. Its bad here Bill, we really got hit hard. I lost four large 80ft trees and in our neighborhood of 260 houses we probably lost 400 trees. It looks like a war zone. Its a bit discouraging to say the least.


Just to give everyone an idea of what the hard hit areas of TX looks like..

And that it will prove some (a lot?) of people wrong on a particular subject......

Oh and by the way, it goes without saying but I'll say it anyway: yes my thoughts and prayers are with Phil and that entire region actually.

Hey TB.... just messin around, OK ?


Tom, thought you'd like that. I couldn't find a good way to work Tool in... maybe next time. Can't wait to see what's under wraps.



Trooper NBA..... whoosh, over my head. Don't watch basketball.




Any So Cal Peeps up for Rickie & Ronnies ?? I'll be out the door in about 20 mins

Dan, if you ever see this. Your wheels are going to a guy in Chico that has a turbo putting out almost 530 RWHP on a race tune, and he says the turbo is too small. Those things will be flying

My girlfriends dad is doing it in his Ranger. Has 2-3 cells working. First cell net him like 5mpg more over what he was doing stock. The idea and process is simple enough

Thats a big chunk of tempered glass, it probably adds a good bit of weight.
