__ Hi Dennis;

Wow! Super nice job!! Watch out for that headliner! Could add several
pounds to the weight<g>! I see a Zoombie, va. (Fill name in here) Shootout!
What are ya gunna name it? You're welcome to "Led Sled" My Jetta's name,
You're not far from my weight, 3400lbs WITHOUT me aboard, which,
intrerestingly enouf is the Jetta's GVW. If I take 5 badd-eries out I can
get almost by, but I like 120 volt performance over 90.

You're running a STOCK 24-36 volt forktruk motor!?No tweeking? Like a
big brush advance or in flite adjustment? GE machine? Guessin' yul be in the
11's with a bit of test an' tune?

Seeya

Bob, back on the Least Coast, where these things just don't happen. Come
back an' liven up the Berlin Turnpike<g>!
