Progress on my stuff.... testing / first start
« on: April 29, 2018, 10:39:06 PM »
Some testing to make sure I got the wiring correct on my MS2 V3.0, and then a startup, followed by another startup (because yay!)

Thanks!  Pretty exciting!  Makes me eager to take it out for a drive.

Still need to mount radiator, get exhaust finished up, get rear-end mounted, and driveshaft made........

ugh....  not too much, but seems like a ton.

Finally pulled out of garage.
Small exhaust leak, because i mig welded the whole exhaust myself.... lol.  Just starting to learn.  :)
Did some pulls, and I'm slowly getting it tuned.  Brakes are super weak.  They stop, but towards the end of the pedal going down.
Barely on the throttle and struggling to keep any traction.  That's with a 3k RPM limiter in it.... hahah!

Now time to refine things, and try to get it all cleaned up.
