    GoPro Hero3. For 1Patriot yeh this thing to me gets up and goes. I adjusted the governor to about 2300 RPM and that made all the difference. It had been hit or miss on the 5th gear lockup like it was searching. Now it goes right through the gears smoothly I might add and will lock up every time. If I remember at 55 its cruising at 1700 RPM. Don't know what the 0-50 time is but for 38,000 lbs it gets on it. The big test to me is how it starts rolling on hills. As soon as the turbo comes in its moving and accelerating.

    Great stuff on the camera work, bringing to mind Spielberg's "Duel", his first commercial film. You got to check it out someday.

    Great movie. Seen it a bunch of times. Dennis Weaver in the car if I remember right. Funny you showed this view. Working on an extension off the front of the wrecker that will give that view.

    The wrecker works great for packing the new dirt work. The rear of this thing is very heavy and works like a roller on the dirt.

    IMG_2037.jpgWell, yes--new wrecker owner here. Asleep at the switch as usual------. Got this little feller home in 2015.

    Starts, runs drives --in need of lots of TLC but loads of fun. Handy around the place and also doubles nicely as a Hummingbird feeder stand---
