could the name possiably be from tesladownunder? (often called TDU on 4hv.org) Just seems too close =). How does one come up with "down under"? not accusing you, just pointing out a weird similarity.

lol, yeah...that does sound strangely familiar/close...

when I hear the phrase, "down-under", I usually think of Australia (for some reason :roll: )

Down under is a very common term is Australia, obviously reffering to the fact that Australia is down under on the globe, meaning very south and under everything else.

So yeah Ide never heard of tesladownunder but there would be heaps of things with down under in theyre names, like that song 'I come from a land down under' by 'men at work' and like 50 bus tour companys.

I dunno I might change it's name to 'knightrider' now I've painted it black...whad ya reckon?

Yeah it works really well, but that thing must weigh like 10 or 15kg and you need 2 ppl to use it, I reckon It increases the range tho and is good for shooting stuff at night :D I might make a smaller one that screws on :idea:

IMO T.D.U. is cool. It's funny a few people haven't heard the phrase "down under"

I recently ate at the restaurant "Outback Steakhouse" (Australia theme)
And they had a map of the world but everything was turned around .
It was funny because Australia was up top and all the lettering was opposite from usual. :wink: 8)

BTW,I was thinking "Outback Thunder" would be another cool name 8)

Ok I'll keep T.D.U but maybe it could be 'black thunder down under' now its all shiny and black :D I like the name outback thunder...but I do live in a capital city 100's of kilometers from the outback, so I'll have to think about that one :P
