This should be awesome! I built a little one that fits between my couch and coffee table. But it hurts the back and my couch feels like a malaise era LTD bench seat. The lack of lumbar support is real! Something like this would be great if set up in my office away from SWMBO, so she can watch her SVU....

Just an evening bump. Tomorrow (as in Wednesday) evening JG is going to his best Norm Abram impersonation.

I am not sure but I think at least a couple of the GRM GT6 people may take a brake from racing tonight to join. I now I am.

I was literally going to show you that video as a "worst practices" lesson beforehand

Check out tonight's big news: steadicam!

(And, yes, we have seen the steadicam fail videos.)

We go live at 9:00 p.m. Eastern tonight. Ed's learning how to be a steadicam operator.

Or get an old racing kart frame with a seat.
