    cha... also if he gets in he needs a few extra parts..

    So today was a veg day for me... watched
    TTC 1998 Tape 1 & 2
    TTC 1999 Tape 1 & 2
    see a pattern?
    TTC 2002 Tape 1 & 2

    So not only did I spend about 6hrs watchin this I saw some stuff..

    first if I was elected to goto the TTC Here is my list of what is needed...

    extra winch cable (seen some break in those videos)
    extra tires on rims
    2 starters
    tranny pan if automatic (and extra fluid)
    few front axles with detroits and proper gears (break one and just swap a new one under as it is quicker)
    spare rear axle for same reason
    2 alternators
    few tubes of JB Weld
    Duct tape
    Tow straps for that extra long reach when needed in the tank trap
    some twist ties

    oh yeah...
    extra rear driveshaft
    2 extra fronts!!!!

    and that was just off the top of my head... boy that would be expensive.. also I would need a tow rig, trailer and ALOT OF GAS!!! and about 3 week head start!!!

    Ill maybe vote...... for someone... dunno yet..
