Video Evidence!!!!

I'm doing some prep for the Indy Mad Max Run in a couple of weeks, and I want to run some cameras on the Rig. So I gathered some of the cameras I use for SCA Combat footage and tried them out on the Crawler. Some things I learned need stuff around close to show the chair flying.
I do a full turn from 20 sec to 40 sec with the chair up...and you can hardly tell, cause the only reference is the horizon really. And while the shot of the driveshaft is cool...and ya can see the chair wheel lift...I don't think I'll use that angle much.
The next fly at about a minute LOOKS better...but I think it is cause there is more stuff to 'see' the angle against.
The final 'out the back' angle will likely only get used on group rides and such.
I need to dampen all the mount points against vibe better and hope that cuts some of the 'watery' effect.

Here is another angle from today as well...
It is still hard to tell when the chair is up(Hint: it happens around 20 secs)

All in all...should be fun when I am surrounded by Wasteland Fooligans.

Keep your shiny and chrome...RUB RUST ON IT!!!

It has Been a WHILE huh?

So...sorry about that. and the Ural 650 had...disagreements.
Not that I didn't love him...just we had different intents.

I wanted to GO...he wanted to be broke.

I was determined to get I contuined to source parts for the rebuild...but THEN...well then...I found a 2007 Patrol.

And the Crawler (Ver 1.8) kinda got overshadowed.
And I spent too much time doing stuff the recall I even HAD this blog.
Yes...I forgot about you.
I'm sorry.
So Sorry...
Can you forgive me?

So...that Patrol.

It was shiny, blue, chromed.

I had to 'fix' that before I even took good pics.
