Mine is in the dictionary, too. But, it was chosen at random.

OFFICIAL: why did you choose that username?

My favorite snowmobile I owned when I joined was a 2003 Ski-doo Rev MXZ 600 and at the time I didn't think I could be more interested in a vehicle than it. That is until I started spending every day on here.

Changed my username a while back. I used to be "firefighter 3215" That was in my previous career as a firefighter and 3215 was my local. Retired in 2005 after 30 years and now I work for the government... got to have insurance and pay for the previous divorce somehow1

I am now just fatrusty after my 25 lb pig of a cat!

Daddies little man!

My Ride: 2004 Imola Red ZHP
I had a 1995 4dr VW Golf 2.0 5sp that was rear ended as I was changing lanes to get to an on ramp for the interstate (Turns out VA drivers don't like you getting in front of them - they're immature children when it comes to driving!!).

I put on my blinker, checked my blind spot, saw I was good to merge and did. The douche sped up to cut me off and ran right into my bumper, sending me skidding out sideways. As I was gliding perpendicular to the lane, I slid just enough off road to take out the 35mph speed limit sign posted on a 2x4. Snapped that sucker in half and the sign SLAMMED on my hood. I had a forever engraved 35mph imprinted on my hood (even after numerous and thorough washings). I came to love my imprint. And that's the story of how I got my name.

Seriously. VA drivers are HORRIFIC (especially in the Hampton Roads area).

Because of this boat we built...

Rogers 20 Bonneville, powered by an Avco-Lycomming T-53 gas turbine jet engine.

It makes 1350 hp, and hurls the boat down the water at 145 mph, while going 0 to 100 in about 7 seconds.

We got the jet from a crashed Huey helicopter, and through the Cassell v-drive, it throws a 24/29p screw via an Arneson surface drive.

The jet spins at about 28k rpm, and has a built in 3:1 reduction unit. That runs into the 1:.83 overdrive (v-drive) which ends up at about 6k screw rpm.

We also installed a disk brake on the output shaft. This not only allows the shifting of the v-drive, but also allows us to stop the output shaft, load the turbine, then release the brake, allowing great hole shots.

The boat is turn key ready, smooth, and built right. While we can build piston engines that make this power, the rebuild schedule would be high. The great thing about turbines is the little wear they produce, and that they are right at home running at 100%, even for long periods of time. Try that with a piston engine.

What the hell. Where does one buy a turbine, anyways?

Nevermind, I found some on ebay. That boat is wicked...

All this talk about little D and size DMAX hasn't even signed on yet. What's the matter with you guys?
