It needs the stone-age equivalent of a scangauge. I presume that would be accomplished by a bird-like dinosaur. LRR axles, smoother, hollow tires, lightweight wood dashboard... I could make that car rock and roll.

A scangauge is a calculator in its simplest form so an abacus attached to the dash might do

I totally thought of doing a bird dinosaur as a scan gauge too, haha... I didn't do it for 2 reasons: 1) I probably couldn't b/c I suck @ gimp and 2) I still wanted it to run on feet so that wouldn't make much since............and btw, I didn't put hollow tires, I made them rubber, that has to decrease the weight by like 1000 pounds?

I like how Barney's bowling ball isn't outside the cabin, as it was in the original, reducing frontal area.

At first I was thinking about making Fred be saying "Ya know barney, you better leave that 50 pound bowling ball at home next time, that hurts my Miles Per Foot-Step" but It was stupid and I changed it to the ecomodder thing.......Note the added seat belts too O.o *Always wear a seat belt ppl*
