lol, awesome thread!

heres how the manual release is done on a 968




and I love having my battery in the back. when my battery was dying and not holding charge this is what i did. i also do this if i don't drive for a week or more. It works so well i was almost considering removing my alternator and hard wiring in a permanent solution!

Kangaroo should be called "tyrannosaur deer".

On topic: If your key doesn't work to open the hatch it may be that the mechanism is out of adjustment or just needs lubed. When I got my car, I couldn't open the hatch at all by electric or key methods and had to crawl into the hatch to get it open. Once I adjusted the cable, the electric motor had enough of a throw to get the pin unlatched but I also had to adjust the hatch pins tighter to get it to pop up enough to stay unlocked. The key mechanism had to be lubricated with some spray grease to free it up enough to turn so that I could do it manually. Now everything works like a charm.

Not sure.... not a bad idea though.

How's the 'roo hunting down under? They seem like 2-legged pronghorn antelope to me but idk.
Would a .243 work as long as I'm using 100 grain soft points?
What's the bag limit?
[/JACKED]

Should do the job..... 5.56 & 7.62 takes there heads right off, not sure of bag limit though.


On topic I tested my key without battery and it works, which is good to know if I ever have a flat battery.

Since we've derailed this thread so bad already...

When I was in Australia a few years back, one of the things I REALLY wanted to do was see a live kangaroo. The Aussies I was with thought I was out of my mind since they view them as big rodents. I find it interesting that over here, we see them as such awesome, entertaining creatures, and you guys see them as overgrown rats. I never did get to see a live one, but saw a few as roadkill...

Correct me if I'm wrong (should've googled this), but I'm certain Australia is the only country that eats the animals on its coat of arms??????

Its like always on my plate .... I love the stuff, when its cooked right. Then again I wrap a lot of stuff in bacon and bacon is awesome to the power of swine......

Ummmmm, I do believe that the poor creature is supposed to be dead before you eat it.
