    Where's video of a run up test hill? Its always cool to see a MT at the dunes. IF I ever get one done I'd like to put a built engine in it that runs on gas just to go out and play in the dunes and not worry about overheating or popping a race engine.

    no video this time. going up july 4th so hopefully we will get some vid. only tried test hill a few times, but the truck was running 250 degrees. i'm really lacking in the power department. plus still had 20lbs of air in the tires. don't know if flat tires would have helped or not. the truck rode so rough that it made me sore for a couple days. round 2 july 4th weekend. thanks steve i will try to get some more pics up!

    I esited your post so it was just a clickable link. The system does not parse blip.tv URLs. Might be able to look in to it in the future.

    Correction the system does in fact parse it but I am not sure of the embed code necessary. Unfortunatly I can not test as I do not have an account on blip. Might want to try Facebook code?

    Man I want to get up there so bad. You need to head for the deep water now. My first test float in a quarry hole that the local search and rescue says they've measured the water to be over 100 ft deep. Yeah first time across we were puckered. lol

    sometime in july we are going to float it in the lake. kind of nervous after watching the excaliber video. we were there only for one day so i brought it in on the trailer. we left my house like 5 in the morning so we were under the dot radar.

    WOW!!! Those are killer pics!!! I love Silver Lake, it has to be my favorite place to go and kick back. I have no idea why anyone would pay big money to go to an island when they could go to Silver Lake.

    I am heading there hopefully in July. My girlfriend and I are trying to make our venture to Silver Lake a yearly thing. I'd love to see you float that bad boy in Silver Lake!!! Let me know when you are planning on doing this.

    i think the dnr would have a fit if i drove it into silver lake. we are going to float it in a private lake (big pond) in muskegon. hey theace27 we are going up july 4th weekend so come on up! hopefully it rains so the water holes get a little deeper.

    I am planning on going up the weekend after the 4th. I am not too sure what the DNR would think.... You could get ahold of them and find out. Or just play stupid and say "this is my version of a boat". I wonder if you could register the truck as a boat like John Moore did with No Problem??? Then I don't think they could stop you. Seeing a monster float in Silver Lake would be beyond Epic!!! I bet a few people would drop their teeth at the site of you heading down the boat ramp!! :D
