Yeah, and when I lived in Shanghai, the breakdown lane on the interstates was just another lane for traffic. Used to run my company Buick 8” off the guardrail at about 140KPH.

Then you see where someone actually ran up on someone broken down…

Imagine the torque on that baby! I was about to purchase the plans, but was put down by the utter lack of dust control. You don’t want all those chips in your open wounds!
