    Skid Factory did not deliver skids

    Nice to see someone figure out how to fit a DOHC V8 into a Ford engine bay. Yanks are cutting the whole front end off to fit 4.6/5.4/6.1/5.0 litre jobbies.

    But it got better. Turbo......

    A few peeps said why not fit an RRS tower notch, but the part of the tower you cut out to fit the notch is pretty much the only strength in the whole car. Everything else in the car is tinfoil spot welded by a drunk blind guy. I was astounded how much flex there is in the structural parts of the car, makes a kingswood look stiff.

    Late to the bike party, but that was a really cool video. I've never owned a road bike but I do like the whole Cafe Racer style and now having bad thoughts about starting another project.

    I think skid factory needs some more manly music attached to it. Don't get me wrong, I like what Moog does and understand it's a side project and obviously (well I guess?) helping Al out with some post production stuff.....just doesn't suit Al's "style" as much. (no doubt a decent match for the target audience though)

    Loving all the offshoots!

    That bike overhaul was awesome though, the camera work was spectacular.

    I watched the latest Mira vid, then straight after that finished checked out the skid factory, it was noticeable straight away it was a more basic and down to earth, but I think it will appeal to people who get more into the technical side of things, which is what mcm lacks for me personally since the gramps and mini vids.

    Al, on a side note, what do you think f the Milwaukee cordless ratchet I saw you using?

    That GN 250 clip was perfect. Agree the Orange tank would have been better but hey its not my bike.
    Quality feel about the video that that made me feel all warm and fuzzy.

    The old Holdens were bank vaults compared to the Falcon front end. Remove the bracket that goes between the chassis rails and the whole car is like wet tissue paper.

    I've only got the upper engine bay K frame on the Mustang and fuck me look at this body flex.

    another great episode, love the way Al delivers information and can't wait until the next one.

    also love the way Al's wireless works - i'm assuming he gets coverage next to his work bench as every time he's there he gets facebook messages lol

    Possibly a legit dead shit question... And apologies upfront if missed the obvious answer somewhere..

    But no tapaptalk for the mcmforums? Used to worm fine but I can't get it going now for a whole and recently it can't even find the forums...

    Just curious as the platform works really easy for retards like me...

    there was an issue in january and mcm forums had to go to a backup from a quite a while before that. so possibly before tappatalk was implemented?
