Than after about of hour of brain storming the two groups meet in a well organized debate. Team IFS won the debate!!! Which is cool because that is the committee I was on. Anywho Team IFS held about a 10-15 minute question and answer forum for Team solid after they lost. Then everybody got to work on brain storming the execution plan to incorporate the IFS...I would love to share how we are going to get this system to work but I would rather not as we came up with some really innovative ideas
Close. You left before the debate began. I elected myself judge of said debate, and awarded the win to "team 60", based on height.... before Mr.Green showed up. If he was there earlier it would have changed everything.

Dana, you order the links and heims yet?

Also, I left 30 minutes after the headaches were issued. Waking up at 4:15 BBEELLLLOOOOWWWWSSSSSSS.

thought you didnt want to go with a 20k buggy. at that rate you will be there shortly.

you can build a descent 60 for a quarter of the price of the ifs it sounds like.

You could get up to 20k just in IFS parts alone. And No I do not want another 20k rig. Unfortunatly I have a small problem with my brain and I cant get certain parts out of my head...lol
