Vader at play...

I don't normally beat up on my car, but I figured what the hell. Once in a while won't hurt anything as long as it is in moderation. Just thought I'd share...







Turn up the volume for the full effect of my beautiful exhaust note and 400RWTQ motivating the car. -->CLICK ME FOR THE VIDEO<--

It sure was fun.

Re: Vader at play...

We're going to do the same thing tomorrow, but this time I'll be on the sidelines taking the photos instead of doing. I enjoy driving my car more than I do playing like this. I'm always afraid I'm going to break something and then it's back to the shop it goes. While it's in the shop getting fixed I think of something else I want to have done to it and then before you know it, I've been without my car for a year. I'm glad that y'all like. It really was a good time and a lot of fun. Maybe when it's time for me to put new rubber on I'll do it again.

Dude, you need to get out and scrape that rubber up so you can put it back on your tires! LOL

Just before I get my new tires I'll probably do it again just to have a little fun.
