Me either, obviously. I'll check next time I'm at Shaun's place to start it up and move it around a bit.
Got another painter buddy coming out next weekend!

sucks that painters are such flake-outs.. youve already done the hard stuff.../ they just need to help mask it and shoot it, sounds like

I saw a post saying to do that while I was looking for the max RPMs. It was from a guy asking the difference between the 210hp and 260hp versions. I already have the 260 version so I don't know if there' more adjustment or more involved. The 880 lbft of torque instead of the 660 would be nice.

THe freeway is FAR from me and I never use it. This is a daily driver bus, the shorty. 643, full size tires, and 4.10 rear tires would be great. I already have two of the three, just need to upgrade the transmission sometime in the future.
Find me a 3060 and send Chris up here and you can have him bring my 643 down to you. We both get new trannies and Chris gets a workout. Sounds like a win-win-win to me

I have one, but I'm not as good as a REAL painter, and I want an awesome job to be done as its a daily driver and all.
A qualified person to spray the paint is worth the $$ and the wait, IMO.

ha! i'll WIRE it, but you'll have to do the heavy lifting.. a 3060 weighs what like 600 lbs? you can bench it up there while I fumble around tryoing to get the first 2 bolts started..
