shoulda made your own thyristor. like a boss.

you could even put an arduino in to control your thyristor!

I put my home made thyristor in a NOS Energy Shot bottle with the logo visible under the tank. That way everyone knew I meant serious business, not unlike Paul Walker in the orginal Fast and the Furious.

cool.. I need to do a little more work

Curiously yesterday I sold a Jikov banjo bolt to a young guy who is trying to resurrect his 207, which he reports still has the Transizmo.
