dana axle corporation

this post is being made from inside the dana axle corporation mechanical testing division compound. this place has some of teh coolest stuff i have ever seen. i saw for the first time a 3.5" wrench which happened to be really really big. the largest axle i have ever seen that came out of some very alrge earth mover. my g/f showed me a picture of it and i have no idea what it does. its large enough that a honda accord is parked in the bucket of it. so yeah, pretty big. also saw a toyota tacoma that is driven by remote controll. the steering brake and throttle are all done using a joystic that is much like that of a fighter jet. they have a viper here that they just use to test different brakes.

and i saw some sort of a wierd ass cadilac. it dioesnt have any of the cadilac badges on it, but from the grille and the tail-lights you can tell its going to be opne. the body panels are covered here and there with black stuff that prevents arial photos from being take. anyways, it is a 2-door and looks kinda like the BMW M3/ small and fast.

have to go cuz she said its time to leave, but yeah, dana rocks.
