    Phuck me runnin! Bad day for the guy standing over the motor, It only took one backfire out of my motor to make me never put my head directly over the top of the motor. That is a story for another time though.
    Boating is nothing like cocaine, boating is much more addictive and results in bigger parties!

    That one looks very familiar, think I saw a longer version before (like 2 min. or so). It was obviously lean, surging really bad, but was OK as long as he kept the RPM up. Driver let it idle too low and then tried to bump it. BANG!

    Yea, that's a shorts-wrecker there.
