I'm the coolest so far. 17 degrees F.
I hold a grudge for a long time so I haven't been up there. We got caught in the flood in 2008 and the hotel wouldn't refund our room but they...
Seat belt and harness has saved me several times.
First in the series. I followed this and ended up with a perfect pattern first try.

It's a short setup and I even had to use the 6" balancer. I ended up with 4" of spacer with the Speedway mount. I asked them the same question...
