Yeah, I know its a bit heavy, but it should hook up. Max Lagod, the owner of hypermax is a firend of mine. SPAL actually built that ranger. They are a completely different type of application, but I have picked Max's brain ad nauseum over the las few years. LOL

I am one of the lead mods/owners of Competitiondiesel.com, Tim Turner and Phil Baker are the two with the keys, however there were 3 others of us that had just as much to do with its beginning as those two. We consider ourselves all to be owners of the site. While I don't know everything, I do know most of the race diesels out there pretty well. Not braggin, just clarifying.
