    LOL no 3W and it wont stay for long. Plan to get car driving again and start accumulating parts. Thinking a 302 bored and stroked to 347 would be sweet.

    Funny because I have had plenty in a couple of groups for these years mustangs tell me to forget it and its not worth doing the swap from v6 to v8 and just start with a v8 car as I will have to upgrade all the suspension and other stuff. They dont get it when I say even if it was a GT all that is coming off and all nice race equipment will go in it even the engine. If it was a V8 I would still be building a nice engine that makes the power I want and swapping it out. Who knows once I get it I may find the car is in worse shape than I think but if so I will just get rid of it and keep looking for something else

  7. Don't you hate covering when the hinges are glued in? Looks like there are plenty installed as well!

    Picked up one of these today at the LHS I work at. Figured I'd dabble a little bit with rockets to keep myself from getting burned out on the airplanes...

    I get home and suddenly I'm down the rabbit hole doing research on how to get my level 1 cert for a Apogee Rocket's Zephyr o_O:rolleyes:

  9. Very cool bro.

    I had fun playing with rockets when I worked at the LHS in High School. Only reason I stopped is I never had a good place to launch them. Seems like they always ended up in some grumpy old mans field. :p

    If I ever move somewhere with wide open spaces, I’m buying some rockets!

    A guy I fly with here makes his own rocket engines. They are hit or miss sometimes as the packing is hard and there isn't any gas to pop a parachute out later. but it's pretty neat. I think he uses stump killer that has potassium nitrate and mixes it with something.
