We just got the frame and motor for our next project. We will be mounting a toilet to the frame. The toilet bowl area will be worked and made into a cooler. This will be fully motorized with hand controls. It started as a joke but we figured what the hell.

Not oddball, but I sold the Rabbit and working a deal for another truck today. Pulling motor, trans out of Rabbit this week and going to deliver it to it's new owner on Nov 14. I hate to sell it to these guys because they're probably going to destroy it! :cry: And I sold it to cheap .

Default Gonna shift every second or so the length of the track

I know most all you two speed race car guys already think three gears is odd ball in the bracket racing we do. I am upping my personal driving anti and planing to build a new car ( contingent on a sale ) that I WILL bracket race in bottom bulb 1/4 mile sportsman competition with 4 or 5 gears using either a clutch or torque converter drive ( not sure which yet) hopefully in 2010. I have decided to sell my new Beretta that I built in 07 that used a Coan XLT TH400.
Why the change ?......
To go faster than I am with my engine, I need more gears. A lighter car is not likely a realistic option and I get bored easily in the car and like to shift I guess.
Please wish me luck guys or better yet buy my Beretta. I need some luck in this current economy.

I'll probably just spray my yard, too. :lol:
