  1. I bet your CT just breathed a huge sigh of relief though. It doesn't have to haul my hefty ass around for three days.
  2. Well i'm out, blardy step niece decided to get married on the 13th. Wife said "Do what YOU want to do" which translated to English from wife language means "You better come to this wedding cunt"
  3. Oh golly, you are going to have so much fun on this. Good choice on the tyres, I had 70/30 spec ones on mine, and it was rubbish off road, and was still able to spin a tyre on wet roads, so didn't inspire much confidence. I loved blasting around on the 220, felt sort of naughty.
  4. Look at that smokey little whore on the right end. The one behind Sue.
  5. Keen to bring my off-roader and mower over sometime.
  6. We sell teng at work, most of the stuff is pretty good for the money, but we have a lot of problems with the torque wrenches. Ok for the home handyman, but if you're going to use it a bit, pay more and get something that will last.
  7. Slap supercharger on, then fit your spare set of carbs to adjust for full boost fueling, maaaaaaaaaaatttttttttteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
  8. Eh, I just came in to ask the same thing. I'm also in the market for a decent spool gun, for ali via mig. Halp. Def go for a spool gun Mr Sentra, the ali liners for a std mig lead/hand piece always suck ass.
  9. Ol mate of mine is down from Aucks, and was keen to go for a bash (which we did, unfortunately) so we did the dam to dam run again (Matahina to Aniwhenua) all went well on the way up, apart from bad porpoising again, due to ride plate being bent up from rock bashing the last few outings. On the way back my steering failed again, praise allah it was just after the gnarly rapids/pressure waves, but was about as far away from the car as possible. The dude that built it, had used a 3mm bit of ali angle to hold the end of the steering cable under that dash, and it sheered off. I managed to loosen the remaining bit of angle, and wedge the edge of the bit connected to the cable under it, then do it up. I added a cable tie to try stop it popping out. Amazing it lasted the trip home, but it was a bit nerve racking driving back thinking it could fail at any moment. We hit a few things as I was scared to do sharp steering movements, or go too fast, but we made it back. We hit a few things we shouldn't have hit, and I made a few poor piloting decisions, which has led to some hard hits, and some of the worst welds letting go, I've also torn the UHMWPE by the intake, which is a bit of a pisser, not sure how I'll fix this yet, Also, this bit protects the bow/keel/join in the UHMWPE (I dunno boat bit names) and I made a mess of it last weekend (ref: above video) So I have lots of things to fix/upgrade/rearrange/maintain now, so might take it off the road/river for winter and get to fixin! Regards, V "fuck that's a big rock" G.
  10. Another great days boating with @johnnyfive and @keltik. We did the Waimana and upper Whakatane river, and had a go at this little stream, Was surprised I made it that far tbh. Did a little bit of damage to the boat, but nothing major. Keltiks vid of the incident, It was quite a ride. All in all a good hoon, would hoon again, A++.
  11. All the formula Atlantic stuff was 16v I think? And as far as a I know, they were about as good as 4AGEs got, not sure why 20v were not used?
  12. What's going on here then, you making a medium port?
  13. Ha, you animal, even my fat ass didn't manage that!
