  1. you should have plenty of base at 2200-2800. See where the 3 levers pivot in the hat at the 3 small windows, the levers would have an " ear" on them, that you put bolts, and nuts (counter weight) on sticking out those three windows.

    Hey Ryan, maybe try some electrical conduit hangers? They can squeeze together tight and with one hole you can bolt and unbolt the camera to different sizes.

    Your good that's the clutch you need. Counter weight will make it hard to shift. Counter weight is for the sissy's that have clutchless shift transmissinons LOL.
     
  6. Go pro makes a pretty simple roll bar mount that is universal and if I remember rite they are not that expensive. Best buy has them in stock if you want to check them out.

    Check ebay...they start at $5 buy it now for a roll bar mount. I wouldn't waste my time making one if they are that cheap.

  10. The only time your gonna see Quain's, or any of team South's faces on your bumper cam, is if we're sitting behind you in the staging lanes, or your backing up from your burn out after one of us already has, or if one of us spots you a car length like Quain did last year, then you can watch us power up and drive around you..,again!

    The Executioner is watching all this be careful what you say.Speaking of in car cameras here's one from last year so every one can see how much fun a 4 speed is. Note no 2 step (rookie switch) on the line.

    Not at all you will be fine. Just make sure your through out bearing has clearance from the fingers that's most people's problem with slippage. I can't believe I giving out speed secrets to the competition.

    Hey Quain...why don't you show the north what the front of your new paint job looks like since the tail is all they will get to see.

    I'm afraid to put any pics of it on the Hamb these people on here are ruthless. I know Johnnie is going to pick on me about my pretty flowers and lace.
     
  19. Hey Quain, that's how we Southern boys roll, get ya thinking all is quiet & friendly..,then, BAM! LIGHTS OUT! Besides, we want to make it a little competitive don't we, its not nice taking candy from children.
     
  20. She sure is purdy, them northern boys are gonna be chas'n some gorgeous Willys tale, only to get "White Widowed" in the end.

    I guess I might as well get it over with. As most of ya'll know I painted the Willys as a tribute to a car that my dad had in the 60s plus I always loved the old lace paint jobs from back in the day. I know it don't go with the Executioner theme but who's to say that a Bad A#& Executioner can't also be a lady's man. Our new slogan is going to be the lady's love it the men fear it. [​IMG]
     
  23. That's awesome

    The Ladies love it... the men are intimidated

    You're right ... Gonna be a tough sell to convince anyone the name Executioner is tough with all that with blue and white lace ... but I like it...a lot

  24. I REALLY need an old school breather mask and hood like the one Quain is wearing and Paul has made fashionable with that wierd I-talian coupe.

    Anyone know where I can get one or have one available ??
    Supply seems to have dried up since they were deemed illegal

    The paint job looks great. It's a Hypnotizer, and by the time you realize what just happened its already too late.
     
  26. Quain I think you made a great decision on the paint looks awesome can't wait to see it in person Nice job

    I looked them up online. Those might just work, plus it looks like they are sold in bulk.

    And this would be even easier. Maybe I can just buy a "lot"... either way, we will have some Go Pro mounts by the Meltdown.
