If I can figure it out you can, I have only had a smart phone for a few months, I had a flip phone before that. Tapatalk is easy to post pics/update threads.

Honestly, I'm a little disappointed that this is being changed significantly from the original design because it had such a short life in it's original incarnation. However, it still looks like it has alot of potential, so hopefully it works out well and you're able to morph it into something that is better than the original. If anything, bringing it back to life and sharing the build is worth alot for us web-wheeling popcorn-eaters.

I know what you mean but I wheel with my wife and 2 kids almost every weekend so it had to be a two seater. If it wasn't a two seater the wife would have killed me. The family is now stoked to go with me and that ment a lot more then being by myself in it.

That Makita has a "Hold tha Fawk On" look to it. I've got a old Milwaukee that has lived a similar life. One night while notching tube it caught and slapped my face, sent my hat safety glasses to the other side of the garage.

I have the same one. It will kick your ass if your not careful. It keeps going after you let go of the trigger, luckily reverse is easy to hit as its a rocker switch.

Well yesterday I got in a fight with a grinder that had a cut off disk on it. needless to say I lost the battle . Some how it managed to grab into the metal and pulled it's self right out of my hands and fly back at me. so with half a disk still attached it flew into my coveralls at my leg and grabbed my coveralls and cut the shit out of me.
