I'd love to but I just don't have the time.

Does the prohibition of alcohol include methanol/water injection? It doesn't seem fair if NOSsssss is allowed that meth/water wouldn't be allowed.

Best wishes for a great year Vic!

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. Fusion® Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)
Best 1/4: 1,320 nanoseconds @ 670,616,629.2 miles per hour
