I was on eBay a few weeks back and stumbled upon a really cool looking oil cap, so I bought it and been waiting for it to arrive ever since. Well yesterday it arrived in the mail and soon as I got it I put it on and snapped some pictures for my blog. It will look really cool once I get my turbo as they will both compliment each other. In the next few months I will try to get my current valve cover sand blasted and painted or find a power coated one on eBay and really make my engine look nice.

I bought another game called Resistance Fall of Men today and it’s really fun to play. It’s a first person shooter with great graphics, easy to play and lots of fun. I tried it for a week as a rental but after playing it I knew this was a game that was worth the purchase.

Late last night I looked into the tank and Ruby had molted and now has larger claws. I don’t have a picture but her size is about 15% bigger and her claws are twice as big as her old ones. I thing i noticed is that when I got her she was red but now with blue gravel she seems to be changing her color to a blue tint. Soon as I get some pictures I will post them up.
I recently purchased Devil May Cry 4 on the day it came out and man this game is awesome. The graphics in HD are amazing and the gameplay is fun too. There are small clips between each level that are just stunning with great attention to detail.

I found a magazine yesterday called the Robot Magazine with lots of neat robot demos, reviews and articles. One page i was flipping thru had a picture of a robot called the Corobot.

It’s cost is around $2800-$3750 but for what you get and if your serious into robotics it’s a nice package. Available at Corobot.net
