    cant believe this is now 3 years ago, and that no-one has repeated the formula (that I have seen or noticed).

    I think we should have another crack at this soon.
    Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons

    If so bump the budget up to $2k and allow selling shit not required, eg buy a manual VN for $1k sell motor box and pedals + other shit not required for a total of $800, means only $200 has been spent

    why? we did low 12's for $900. The only reason we didn't smash 11's for $1300 was due to boredom.

    No reason someone else couldn't do it.

    Yeah I've been thinking about it too. Lets talk when you come and get your welder.
    Very professionally, and with no emotion, Walter spoke: “Los Angeles Center, Aspen 20, can you give us a ground speed check?” There was no hesitation, and the replay came as if was an everyday request. “Aspen 20, I show you at one thousand eight hundred and forty-two knots, across the ground.”
