Great job Skull. Takes me back to when I was a kid, watching my aunt and uncle racing similar cars at the fairgrounds. Don't even give a thought to what those dipsticks on the Hamb think about it.

Good idea on the catfish. I can eat a bunch of them. Building an aquaponic system is probably like building a shop. No matter how big you make it, you always wish it was bigger.

Oh, one more thing. I think the guys explanation of trail is off a little. Zero trail wouldn't be the pivot at the neck being in line with the axle, but lining up with the contact patch of the tire....

Swanee, think I'd stick that cooler right into the bar. That way you don't have to get off the stool to grab a cold one.
