    Yeah well i typed that before trying it out and well it is't that great but still.
    For a week now i am trying to build a monstertruck whit suspension and stearing. I am using about the same design. I am doing it so that  that you are able  to hook it up to cyber knex engine's and make it rc. But because i haven't got cyber knex engine. I am stuck whit 2 engine's from a crane. That are hooked up to 1 remote i you know what i mean.

    yer they are not really my type of music either they are good for easy listening, i usually listen to hardcore and deathcore stuff i don't like slipknot as much anymore either
