What's your plan when it comes to adding ballast to the tires? Water? Steel shot? Nothing? Just curious what the final weight of a single tire will be front/rear and why you're targeting what you're targeting? Also, if you consider this proprietary and choose not to answer, I understand haha.

I fill it to the top of the wheel with water, it ends up roughly at 300 pounds of bias in each front tire.
OH man, don't tempt me like that!

I found out yesterday that my duties with slorex are shifting from the expo in Feb to the Delta event from now on.

I’m excited to be bigger part of it, and to get to know another set of people and events better.
Gasp! You do know I’m involved with Delta, right? Just saying don’t be that excited 🤣

I assembled some shelves in our utility room for food storage. #justmormonstuffandthings

Mainly did it so when my wife says “you work on the buggy too much” I can say “that’s not true, I just built those shelves the other day.” Follow me for other marital tips and tricks.

Broke my own cardinal rule last night about not dumping ALL of the fuel from a transfer jug into the OPE. I'm running a bit low on fuel and have to get some more this weekend but arrived home last night and had to clear 4 inches from all the concrete and the snowblower tank was empty from the morning snow removal. As I was dumping the last remaining fuel into the snowblower's fuel tank I got distracted and just as it was finishing I saw some black shit go through the clear hose to the tank. SHIT! I had hoped it wouldn't be enough to cause any disruption but nope, it bit me in the ass and rather quickly.

I only got about 15-minutes into the snow clearing process when it started missing and popping. I thought "well, that didn't take as long as I had hoped." Ended up taking it into the shop in the backyard, pulling the covers and then the carb to clean.

Once the carb was removed I opened the valve and let some fuel run through to let the bottom of the tank clear and then pulled the carb apart. There was black specs in both the main jet as well as the emulsion tube so after a shot of brake clean and compressed air I double checked the needle and seat to ensure it was holding and then all back together.

Fired right up and purred like a kitten for the next hour and a half of snow blowing. That idiot move cost me about 25-minutes of delay I hadn't planned on. 🤬
