    so the brake light switch was sticking out too far and holding the pedal down some, i knew the brakes were on somehow but couldnt figure out why, so my performance wasnt what i was hoping for

    brakes worked awesome

    accelerated a little slower than i wanted, but the brakes were partially on, enough to slow me down kinda quick when i let off the gas.

    so heres the video rundown
    step on it
    slam on brakes
    steering goes out but i dont know it
    step on it and try and turn left
    slam on brakes and wave friend over
    steering shaft came off of box, loose nuts i guess

    heres the other video

    painless wiring or 12voltguy? Really making me think I should ditch my console and factory wiring in favor of that setup. Was considering cutting the hole in the floor today too(trying to put a tranny in a V8 S10 with the engine moved back is NO fun)
