I felt the same way after looking at mine since xmas. Got fuel, ran like crap, couldn't tune, i checked it over but somehow AFTER looking at it for 6 months on a shelf I find i'm missing a screw in my exhaust manifold. Did have it running and bumped it into a parked car tire. bam, front suspension is gone.
Well that was a fun 200$ or whatever it cost the girlfriend.
