Ouch. Don't get discouraged, man. You've been shooting for the moon with this thing and there is a lot of fun to be had funning a regular big block or G3. I went pretty conservative with my big block and it was a really strong but fun truck.
I am charging up my batteries tonight and hope to burn some nitro for the first time this year. I've been working since the fall cleaning things up, rebuilding and upgrading and now everything (except a few parts that just came in for the Baja) is ready. For the first time since I started there isn't a wish list or to do list.
