Amazing. Or as the guy in the video says, "That's perfect!"

Dave, I assume you've considered having the Humungus's speech playing on the PA in a loop?

That was just awesome to see the machine in action. 8-) Great work Dave.
"UNDERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the front of the car.
"OVERSTEER" is when you hit the fence with the rear of the car.
"HORSEPOWER" is how fast you hit the fence.
"TORQUE" is how far you take the fence with you.

That's AWESOME.
I hope I get to see a higher res video at some point.

Think about this, at Road Warrior Weekend, we could have that Humungus machine leading a fleet of vehicles kicking up dust and then coming to a halt for Dave to make his grand entrance. The mind boggles.

That's an excellent idea. Maybe the arrival could be a formal part of the event. Count me in.

at 4:40, though you can hear the engine at 3:50!

There was a problem with my PA system, as in you can't really understand what I'm saying. It doesn't help that it's an old system and Humungus already has some speaking problems. But there was no problem hearing Ken! He rocked!

I'm going to look into getting a new, kick ass PA system for November.

Oh man.. I'm still hoarse from that.. (well that and late night elevator parties...) it's all good though.. It was much fun and looked awesome.. it's the people out there in internet land that realize what's going on that make it worth it..

New PA will pretty much complete it!

The Machine is greatly appriciated

PS: here's a great photo I found of you on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/leefly/3891890841/
