Look, I just could not justify 150 on a autometer gauge that does nothing, sorry if its just me, even if the gauge was lying arround, I would leave it lying arround until i had some use for it. Tony, im sure you wouldent pull out the expensive items you have in your "cupboard of joy" or whatever it is, just for bling and/or to make it look good or whatever. There are allot of things you guys will hate that I like and vice versa (as far as the exhaust etc), Im a performance man when it comes to my cars, so maybe (my bad) let me rephrase that to, I do like the fast and the furious type cars, but more so the parts under the hood, the suspension etc and yes the low profiles. But fancy graphics, custom interiors and ridicuous sound systems that cost in excess of 1k not my style.

You guys are probably mis-understanding what im saying, its hard for me to get across exactly what I mean and the internet often takes things out of context and interprets them wrong.

As far as something lying around if got it why not throw it on a show pony.If its the money well better spend it before the taxman or wife gets it.Don't get me wrong but most mods done to cars these days are visual and loud to be noticed by other people not for the owners pride in their ride or performance.I worked at a car auction on brisbane southside I was the senior test driver of all sorts of fast and furious and way too expensive cars from allover the world and I always liked the ones that were built to perform 1st- look good 2nd(from factory or by owner).And exhaust mods have seem to forgotten about back pressure and tuned systems especially when late model car computers have to manage the engine power based on what infomation they get.It all may be old school but I would rather the money I spend be noticed from the drive not the look and growing up in sydney years ago with the cops around every corner you did not want to be noticed.

Tony or Kade,
I'm looking for a way to make the front of my mini monster truck 4x4. What I need is a way to switch it from 2 wheel then to 4 wheel drive. Have any options for this setup? Want to make it shaft driven.
