Do you mean that little 'stumble', Ryan? Is that a 'drive-by-wire' or aa actual throttle cable?

Yep the stumble. It's a cable - actually a cable I custom made to get rid of cruise control - maybe I messed it up?

And, found out the rear diff is likely toast. :-({|=

For a second, I thought you crashed it! Get some snow tires on that thing and lift it! :D

Of course, it didn't help that he drove through the ONLY snow for miles around.

Hahah yeah it was an epic failure

Rear diff should be limited slip. http://www.stealth316.com/2-awd5.htm#Rear But, this one is no longer cool like that. Time for me and the mad scientist to tear it apart and find the friction rings I fried. :rock:

Well it looks good, and it sort of moves under it's own power. So I shall drink a beer in your honor. :drinkers:

I'm still staring at my hunk o junk, wondering what to do.
