    kinda cool he built up that ATV, but he used a 2 stroke snowmobile engine, and just cut a straight pipe exhaust for it. I'm no 2 stroke master, but it seems if he would have saved the expansion pipes form the snowmobile, it would have made a lot more power.

    I thought the show was kind of weak. I think I just want him to finish off Sgt Rock or tackle something big like Crazy Horse, or Copperhead. I don't know maybe I just expect too much. It's a lot better watching Gearz than those other guys except Ian and Jesse. I like it just don't like watching the same things over again.

    Yep, I thought it was pretty kick ass. Dunno much about two strokes either, but it seems that it would still be almost twice the HP, expansion pipes or not.

    I bet he had more in tires than the whole motor/vehicle. Looked like a cool play toy. I think he has an affinity for those things, I seem to remember him playing with a 6x6 version on Trucks! a few years back.

    To run a 2 stroke effectively the expansion pipe should have been used... Lack of is pretty stupid:rolleyes:

    When the **** is this show on? I've been watching for it all weekend and stepped out of the house at 12:30 CST to eat dinner at the folks. And then I come back on here to find everyone talking about the show. I must have missed it again.

    So, what time and channel is it on? Sat. or Sun.?

    When I mentioned the "same thing" I was referring about the other truck shows showing a lot of the same. I did not mean Stacey showing the same thing. Yes, he has never shown an ATV or anything like it. I just expected more. Can't wait until he tears down a truck again. I thought he was going to redo the electrical system on the Bronco he mentioned it on his last show that it was a fire hazard waiting to happen.

    One thing people need to remember is the new show is not all about trucks. So were gonna see a wider variaty of vehicles. I think he will still focus on truck in general but we all need to expect to see cars and bikes in the program. Hey it better than watching those numb nut's take six months to build a flat black F-100 with a 350:rolleyes:

    I got the DVR recording his show automatically and finally got to watching it last night, I really enjoyed it. Not what I expected, but still he's a gear head who can hotrod anything. My wife that that the little thing was neat and looked like fun.

    I thought it was cool too. I liked the flashback to the 70s when he was talking about some of the wierd vehicles they had then. It was fun watching him have fun driving that 8 wheeled thing 40 mph across that field, mullet flying. It made me want to get one (8 wheeled ATV, not mullet).

    So far I like the show.

    I agree, it was a cool show. I even think he has more fun doing this show than he did Trucks, just seems like he's got more initiative this time around.

    NOW that's what I have been dying to see. I have found the ideal car for my daughter a Mazda Miata with a 302 or? Now that's the car for my girl. Anyone else see the show where Stacey will turn a Mazda Miata into a rocket?

    This is the kind of stuff I have come to expect from Stacey.
