I have heard some guys doing this lately. Thought maybe I'd give it a try.
Used the handy man's secret weapon to put a digital recorder on the bumper of my Brat (Snow Worry)
and went for a spin in low range.
Please let me know if it worked and how about yours?

I second the diamond plate dash... looks sweet. Whenever I finally get myself a wagon lifted, I want to throw in a programmable speedo... while I'm pulling the dash, I sure wouldn't mind doing a bit of research on that diamond plate. It looks *good*.

i should try and get a little video or something of our race cars.

They are all Xt's and stuff, but run a rull 2.5 inch stainless system with no cats, and just a 6 inch long resonator where the stock muffler should be.

They are a little loud, but sound SOO good

Sk A Roo if I was of your comedic slant,
I would say
"You crack me up!"

And now for your listening pleasure??
I present
"Willy the Wonder Wagon"
(like in I wonder if it will start?)
complete 2.5 inch exhaust w/ twin tube downpipe and a mid mounted hi flow cat

If you are planning on uploading a rather large video,
can you also upload a separate audio file for us with
speed challenged dial ups?
me and my slow arse server thank you

Mom's new digital camera records like, 45 seconds of video with it's 16MB onboard memory, so I recorded a short (20 seconds or so) video of me sitting in my driveway revving my Turbowagon...

It's not TOO big (1.38 MB) View it here:
http://usmb.net/gallery/album170

Those of you with dialup, I made a second movie that's only like 200 K or so.. But if you have the time or broadband, download teh bigger one :-) And turn your speakers up :-)
