Default potato cannon

for thoes of you who know what one is i think that some one should mount one to their truck and use the 3rd channel to ignite the fuel. for thoes of you who don't know go to google.ca and type in potato cannon, spud cannon, spud gun, and you will understand it more. comments about this and if you are going to try are all welcome

I can see putting one on a trailer but to the truck would be too big. Even on a mammoth the gun would be too big. Now hooking up a semi trailer and going with a 6 channel for total full function would be absolutely cool! This way the wiring to the trailor can be made into a harness and the truck could still be used for romping. To go one more step put it inside a trailer so it pops out of the roof of the trailer. Then it'd be like monster garage style fun as well. Now where did I put that 6 channel system I have.........

Yup, Monster Garage rules!

You could rig it up with a trailor, and put a T-shirt gun on the trailor. Then you could shoot T-shirts into the crowd at ball games and monster truck events.

A Tamiya trailer could carry one and a King Hauler could pull it, but wouldnt you need to refill after every shot??

We're not in the weapons business. Gotta shut this one down.
