Not to get off topic too much- i use an Aiptek HD handheld video camera ( small enough to put in my jeans pocket)- was like $90 at Target - best things about it is it uses a SD disc for extra storage AND i can take still pictures with it as well .

Ive had it around 3 years or so, makes pretty good videos - only issue lately is it seems the mic is too sensitive - loud noises make it crackle n almost screech .

Id definitly buy another one like it .

Yeah, I had a vivitar video camera, I used it twice and took it back... It did sound (poorly) but the worst part was the vid quality. It claimed it was HD, but it only recorded at 720p @ 20 frames per second. HD is usally 60 fps. It looked like a slide show of pictures when you would play it back. They're junk!

Is that a digital camera or a camcorder? I might look into that one... I'll look it up on the target website when I get a chance.

Get a Kodak ZI6. Thats what I use now, its a pocket camcorder. Can take 720p videos and saves to a sdcard. Although its not the best for movie maker editing because it saves in the wrong format, but i downloaded a awesome video converter!

No, no luck on the camera... Looking a the kodak playsport 5.0. It's waterproof which sounds like a good thinfor me to have. I did however get a new grinder. It's a Hitachi 4". It came with a case and 5 wheels. It was a damn good deal for $40. The wheels alone are around $5 each. NONE of the other grinders came with a case.

*** UPDATE***

Finally, got some shop time, not alot, but something! Cool

Decided not to weld the hubs to the axles. Instead, I welded the hubs to the honda wheels, and I'll use the keyway as a fuse point. So, Hopfully, that would break before I blow the trans. If it did blow it's not a big deal, I have another foote, and a peerless that could got into it's place...

Anyway, on with the pics!

The wheel, with the hub welded on...

Custom Craftsman Rock-Crawler build - Page 4 100_2769

The tire size is 155/80/13 The smallest I could find.

Custom Craftsman Rock-Crawler build - Page 4 100_2770

I got it perfectly centered and straight... If I could take a vid, I would show you! lol!

Mounted...
(Kinda funny looking, I know!)

Custom Craftsman Rock-Crawler build - Page 4 100_2771

Custom Craftsman Rock-Crawler build - Page 4 100_2773

Put a block of wood under the rear tire to level it out a bit.

Custom Craftsman Rock-Crawler build - Page 4 100_2774

So that is one side done. It should hold up well, only the test of time will tell bounce

So, I didn't feel like doing the other side because it took me so long to get that one centered and welded, I decided to mess around with some other stuff...So In my quest to find a home for a battery, I decided to try to jam it back under the seat..

Custom Craftsman Rock-Crawler build - Page 4 100_2776

Gotta raise the seat up a tad to get it to clear though. Razz

So I finished the day out by trimming the front hood so it clears the suspention and tires.

Custom Craftsman Rock-Crawler build - Page 4 100_2778

Hood all done!

Custom Craftsman Rock-Crawler build - Page 4 100_2779

Did somebody say GROUND CLEARANCE?! lol!

It's looks good. The rear fenders will help hide the gap between the wheels and the chassis. It should be awesome now!
Glad you found a place for a battery, Im still lost about mine!
Those wheels look great on there now. Cant wait until more

I was thinking that too, I messed around with the fenders a bit, but not too much. I think the wheels look a little funny, I wish they were a little shorter and a tiny bit wider. If it handles these tires well, then I'll opt for something more aggresive. But if the trans lets go, then I'll have to step it down a tad.

no fair Mad i wanna get mine done so i can ride but its best to take time and not rush. all i need to really do some mods iS MY OWN WELDER THAT I CAN USE ANYTIME AND A GRINDER, AND FLAT STOCK OF VARIETY OF SIZES AND TUBE METAL AS WELL AND I CAN GET SOME STUFF DONE. the only thing closest to a grinder i have is a dremel it would work if i can find a good size disc that wont burn up in 20 sec. but the dremel is nice for those hard to reach places.

+1 for the Zi6, It recording to a SD card is really convenient because you can just pop it out and plug it into the computer. Editing is a bit of a pain in the ass tho lol.
