I disagree, there is nothing jerry-rigged or mickey moused together on this build. This is all very very well thought out and executed.

I'd love to see a timeline of build decisions made (like knowing to machine the crank pulley to accept the timing wheel way back when God's dog was a pup).

The way I look at it if you are buying parts then have to make a bracket to mount a bracket to make the part work that is Jerry-rigging. I am not dogging on their work at all. They have laid out this build amazingly well. I don't see how you can say shoehorning a gts4 into a mini isn't mickey mousing and jerry-rigging. In my book, they went professional level mickey mousing. I have seen some pretty stupid pro builds. I have yet to see anything on this that makes me scratch my head.

These guys are incredibly gifted if you ask me and fun to watch.

Bloody fooking talented innit?

Best recurring quote: 'It's only money.'



I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. -Ecclesiastes 9:11

Gotcha - I've always thought of jerry-rigging as a fast and dirty way to get things working (It may work, but it probably won't last and you damn sure don't want to be showing it off). Example: in my mind if they had mounted the power steering pump with zip ties, that would be jerry-rigging.

That's an entirely different kind of rigging, altogether. Roll Eyes
