2012 Range Rover Sport vs Evoque Colorado snow-worthy Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Range Rover Sport and RR Evoque are some
of the most off-road worthy cars you can buy. But which one is better in
the snow? Or to be even more specific, which one is better in three feet of
newly fallen Colorado powder. We decided to find out in this snow-worthy
review by driving both Range Rovers to Gold Hill, Colorado up Lick Skillet
Road. Lick Skillet Road is one of the steepest country roads in America,
and when it snows three feet the road not only gets slick but also very
slippery. So which one of these two British cars is the best in the snow.
The old establish Range Rover or the up stark newbie Evoque. Check out this
video review to find out.
SMD Towering Towers! 7' -10" Tall! NEO Magnet Attachment (Build Update 9)
i finally got the rest of the NEO magnets in and since i didnt get to show
in the previous video just how strong they are, nor the finished product, i
figured i would do that here. These are detachable in case i need to move
them around easily or transport.At a towering 7' 10" tall, they will be
hard to fit in smaller rooms. As stated in the video, i am still waiting
on my custom 18" passive radiators (google it if ya' dont know what those
are). Soon i will install them and take the towers for a real test drive.
Once i am happy with how they sound i will finish the body work for good
and get them painted. I am thinking smooth, glossy, piano black. Check
back soon for updates!

Tremendous BASS 89 - System hits so damn hard it set off the building (next
door) burglar alarm off......also, for those that are new, i did a mini
system tour so you can see whats all in this Tahoe. The list is also at

loudest systems with as 5 seat vehicle around......but also, its important
to me my ride looks good to. I think i achieved my goal, well

Playin with Amps - Boneyard amps on 2 RE 18" Woofers - Ported Wall Honda Civic
Tryin to stay busy while i wait for my Tahoe to get back from the body
shop. I figured i would try out some of these old amps i have had for a
while. The Honda is only being used for its woofers, nothing else is
hooked up except the test bench. I thought it would be fun to see if some
of my amps still worked and if so how they did on a pair of RE MT 18's.
These woofers are known to take 5000 watts for periods of time so it is
interesting to see how they sound on 60, 100, 200, 500, 1500, 2500 and even
a single T4k. This video was running long so i had to make a few..
Tinting the Windshield - 2001 Tahoe 30% Front 5 % Rears
Check out the latest thing i had done to the Tahoe. I called up Mike from
Tint 2k and he came by to handle my rear glass, since it was never fixed
after the accident a few months back (see video), i figured it was about
time i got it done. While he was here i had him do the windshield, which
led to a tint strip and now its all hooked up proper! He did such a great
job i had him do the Lexus on the spot. That video is next! If your in
sacramento or Nor-Cal (and slightly beyond) call Mike at Tint
2k.........916-501-2076 - oh and watch how he pimps my new lexus out in the
Edwin T. Socket discusses Voice Coils and some of the technical aspects of
