    Ahh, that makes more sense to me now. I've always wondered why Xhibit was the host. He usually came off as a total idiot... but if it brings viewers, who cares right?

Thats also why we never showed anything to technical, it was all visually impressive and made people talk which is why the show was popular. Even if you made fun of the show you were still talking about it. Publicity is publicity, good or bad.

    P.S.-I only used the smiley cause I thought the bouncing boobs were cool. LOL
    Makes sense now. Its on MTV right? Can't say I watch MTV or VH1 (any of the 10 of them MTV1/MTV2/MTV3/MTV4/MTV5/etc...). I see the commercials advertising some show on the channel and think, "who would ever watch this..." Then when it is in its third season I am utterly stumped. But 12 to 18 seems like the right crowd.

    Maybe since the two crowds (techies and nontechies) rarely ever watch the same hows or channels, you guys could use the same footage already shot and put it on TechTV or Discovery as a half hour show with the tech behind what you've done. Maybe engine wise, sound deadening wise, or of course gadget wise. Extra revenue from just editing already shot footage right?

    I wish the meet wasnt so far away, I want to go and see everything!

    MTV isn't part of some huge conglomerate like Viacom?

    I just did a total over haul of my system. I stripped everything including the old wiring and sound system, installed new fronts, rears, sub, mounted 2 amps, new pc, hd radio, sirius, double din monitor in the front and 2 monitors in the rear. That only took 40 hours. You got 2 weeks thats plenty of time to get a monitor done.

    Yeah I wish I had that kind of time. I only have a couple more hours today, and then a few hours next weekend free to do this stuff. I'm still hoping to be able to wire up an amp to the factory harness if I can find one that will work, and install a new atom.
