That sucks about the rock chip Chris, ever had a windshield shatter into pieces while you were in the cab? Sounds like a gunshot.

I've gone through 2 glass doors in our 450CT and one in the Case 160. Not fun to replace when then have that pressure gasket around them.

I got my GoPro Hero2 camera today so now I can try taking some videos like you have.... can't wait!

yeah that thing is really loud if your behind it and close. I think it would help if the exhaust pipe was a little taller. Ear plugs are required none the less

Those driptroits are 2 stroke. They sound like they're turning twice as fast as they really are.
