Wow that is cool. Who would have ever thought that we would be able to actually see each pulse from the zoomies as it strikes the tires?

Don't consider it "being scooped", just consider us all your "HAMB SUPPORT TEAM". Cool footage!

Look carefully at the other side of the engine. One of the Zoomies is puffing white. Fouled plug? Holed piston? Broken rings? Cracked cylinder? That digger was running on 7 cylinders and still managed to pull away from his competitor!

F***in' computer won't load the vidio again! Stinkin' technology quits just when you've come to rely on it. I don't trust it if I can't fix it with hand tools. Glad you guys all enjoyed it though.
