I'll have to get some seriously good moving and jumping videos when the frames coated (don't want it to rust from snow and water).

I Put together a compilation video to sum up the build. This is the video to watch. If you don't watch any of them, this one will bring you up to speed.

Hehe.
Bob's Garage.


A nod to Mr Zappa perhaps?

Wow, how cool is that. I know one Frank Zappa song, "valley girl"...

Actually (perhaps sadly) there's nothing grand about the title. It's just my garage. Although, I do have this theory that the internet would be a kinder gentler place if people have to log in as themselves... So I do just that. and include my actual name. Been doing it that way since about 1996 on-line. There's a few guys that log on as themselves on every forum. Keeps down the ego's and puffed up arguments. Although I'm pretty easy going.

Yeah true.

I think a lot of us stick with the username we chose a long time ago and use it on most forums.
I've been "Dirty_Vinylpusher, D.V.P and sometimes D1R7Y_V1NYLPU5H3R" for so long now it would be too strange to change it.



As for the Zappa reference - I make connections like that with just about everything I see/hear.
There's always a movie title, quote, song lyric or band name in there somewhere.

hey, i cant believe i just found this build, its really cool man! i like the idea of electric, you'll never see a big beast like this indoors as they are all gas. oh an another wonder of the electric system, it never gets all oily, and you can back up whenever you want as im sure there would be nothing worse than getting stuck up against something indoors in a small space and having to go and move it by hand. i do think some more power is called for tho maybe 2 8v gel cells? 3 6v gel cells? 2 12v cells?

Little more power wouldn't hurt. But even as gutless as it is. I'm pretty happy with it.

Just hanging out. It's outside time of the year here. Not so eager to kill time in the garage when it's sunny.

Fair enough.


So in a couple of months there will be more noise from Bob's garage?

Well, I've got 3 more videos about done... they're getting more elaborate and MAN does editing take time. I think we have one where we do a makeover on our race trailers generator, building our dirt track, and some stuff on the HA/GR dragster, building a full size dirt oval for real cars at my buddys farm, and possibly starting another HA/GR dragster based on a late 70's Monza... I gotta learn to relax more.

Got a few things in the works. mounting the body on gas cylinders so it pivots at the back and lifts like a funny car. And some powder coat. Sometime before the end of summer.

Hello,

Igot nailed £80 for one Toro but it did have to come from Mexico. Still wonder if anyone has been able to shim the gears to mesh better. I am building a truck with one at the moment but do need to figure out how to ensure the gears don't blow out. Drew something on here has succeded in doing so.

Have you made anything with the Toro's since this post Bob?

Glenn.
