hehehe indeed! And with the 4x4 HI launch, if you have some time to build boost, a boosted 20-25psi is definately possible, just takes about 5-6 seconds of powerbraking to build up the boost...oh yeah if you have stuff on your dash, make sure its not infront of you on the dash. You'll see why the first time you do a 20+ psi boosted 4x4 launch.
