    I was spreading 1 1\4 the other day thinking one of us old school guys should post a video of our hands flying around the rack with the caption Who needs joy sticks.... I would, but my phone is stupid not smart.

    I'm gonna guess that those things wouldn't fair well in a rock cut. I was in our old 7 today, and I'm still vibrating. That thing looks a bit smoother

    As apposed to the new guys that just throw it off the shoulder. Could post a video of going sideways down the road at 20 mph bouncing off a frozen drift or 15 mph in the ditch trying to throw snow over the banks too.
