    YourName2000 saidWow, that's pretty amazing. Damn nice car....though I was a little taken aback that at how he has to switch gears, lol.

    Helluva talent.


    And no complaining! I almost think it's a life advantage to have a disability like this.

    Yeah, I can't quite figure out the car thing. Those have pretty loose steering at 5 1/2 turns lock to lock for manual or 4 1/2 if it's power steering. I guess it's easy enough to swap in a newer fast ratio, fixed ratio Saginaw steering box, but I still don't understand how he would steer it.

    It looked like he had a small steering disk for his left foot, where the clutch would be on a standard (you can see it at 5:42).

    Can't believe the precise CAD work he's able to do with his feet...I had a hard enough time with CAD with both hands, lol.


    I was watching the vid on my phone, but watching full screen on 27" I can see it. What talent !
