This makes me want to do something with my bone-stock but slightly ratty SW20.

I have some $40 Chinese dashcam footage that I'm splicing a highlight reel together from. A friend has a few hours of GoPro footage as a chase car that he's doing the same with. Once either is complete, I'll toss up the links to them.

It's really really fun to work within such a strict budget. As the challenge has proven for years.

It is beautiful, I wouldn't have done it any other way myself.

The third team in the rally got some decent footage of us "bothering" other motorists.

Vehicular Harassment.

Last post in the thread - I sold Sweet Chili Heat for $2700 thus completing everything required of the event for which it was built for.

Here it is being driven away by it's new owner.

Many many thing are on the horizon. My wifes CB400F is getting reassembled this winter. Her RX8 is getting some much needed love (shocks are miled out) and my fat mustang is getting it's suspension worked over so it can start slaying cones.

I don't know how I missed this before but great work and write up.

If you want to do another rally there is one that takes off from Lethbridge each year. Budget is only $700 though.

"Texas of Canada" you say? Must be a fellow Albertan. The old 4KRUZN sticker on the hood almost confirms it came from Conroy. Calgary or Edmonton?

The compression tester is from Twisted Rotors. He stopped selling them and now offers the plans and parts lists for free to build one yourself. Most expensive part is the 200psi pressure transducer.
