    I do want a Caterham 7

    Street legal cars are more tools than toys. Also, vaping plus cars = DUI

    Is no bueno.
    Rock crawling rigs are toys. :rockon:
    Building one now actually :D

    I also really want to build a ultralight aircraft

    Is it life size or an RC rock crawler?
    Seen some pretty neat RC ones lately!

    They can be great to smoke around/in somewhere parked on private property.

    In fact I had one such session earlier. It was fun!

    Drift car is definitely a toy. Those are a blast.

    If you think it’s a toy, then it is.

    I do like wagons. Good adjustable coil over fronts make a world of difference.
    Those understeer like a dog on a slippery floor in a fast corner.

    Edit: I’ve got a car story about a 72’ VW beetle vs a new Z1 on a hill course for pinks. :evil:

    I did that for my wife today. Having a rough day at work. She laughed

    Ok but only one.

    I’m debating making a vape on a stick like the flowerpot. Honestly though, I think the box is much more functional. Thoughts?

    As in a light source with a handle attached?
    That would be pretty sweet!
    You could make it so it only switches on when introduced to the bowl, since heat is almost instant.

    Have you seen the Venus Vaporizers yet?
    Maybe get some inspirational ideas?

    Pressure switch... on the hot end... I’m gonna say, no. :)

    Just looked at the Venus stuff. They put it in a vapor globe! :D
    Pretty simple construction.
    Reminds me of this

    @Boden

    The Venus is actually a microchip controlled vape with LOTS of technology inside!
    They use Halogen bulbs as well.

    As for the pressure switch(?) i was more thinking along the lines of a small micro switch that will turn the light on when placed on the bowl. It can be outside the heat source on the edge.
