no, that's more IRPQ's style
but he is definitely attached to his car - like we all are

and besides... he's probably teaching his kids how to install it so he don't have to

I'm sure you'll get many opportunities now... I always preferred the Angels back in the day. They used to train a lot in my home town. Then I went in the AF for 21 yrs and never thought the T-birds measured up... until the last few years...

Either one is always a blast to watch..


Hmmmm hope the MGW isn't causing problems... May need to call in IRPQ to help...

Maybe it's what you're used to, but my dad said the Angels show was way better now than anything he has seen from the T-Birds...


I just saw the San Antonio tag in the photo and was wondering...

One of the most amazing things I've ever seen was the replication of Pugachevs Cobra, a maneuver originated by a Russian Pilot in a mig... There was a naval pilot that was able to duplicate it in an FA-18.... I'll see if I can find a video of it...

Here one of a Russin aircraft, couldnt find one of the FA-18

Are those Cobra maneuvers though? It looks more like they're full-throttling it straight upwards... mimicking a rocket...

I love the F-22s...I heard they're all being decommissioned, though? Too expensive or some crap like that....apparently we're not fighting enough to justify the world's best fighter jet...

Wonder how that MGW install is going...


It is not difficult at all. there are a couple sticky points but really it's pretty straight forward. even the last step of leveling the shifter isn't difficult. Just check for clearance and you are good to go.

I had the old shifter out in less than a hour taking my time... About that time a friend came over and we had the MGW on in about the same time.

with us watching and rewatching MGW's video's I'd saw we took 2.5 hours to get it done.

My right hand is definitly more connedted to the car now... It really is sweet. My buddy has the factory hust and he says the MGW is smoother, and more positive feeling. He said the springs in the MGW are stronger also.

Took it for a test drive, got some dinner and put the kiddos to bed. All is well.

You really need one of these.

keep watching the back flip is cool because it rotates around the pitch axis.. not a "roll" maneuver The only aircraft that can do that.

yeah, the 22 in that vid looks like he's just doing a vertical climb as opposed to what looks to be a dogfight maneuver to get in behind a tailing opponent.

Congrats, Chris!! MGW is also adjustable, isn't it?


Gotta love thrust-vectoring!! Gives a whole new level of control to just about anything that used to rely on separate systems to adjust course.

I tried to explain this to my middle school kids with regards to rockets...but they just couldn't wrap their minds around it.
