Well, I finally killed it. The motor in the Samurai that is. I guess holding it at 6K RPM's all the time will do that to a motor. Especially when it redline's at 6500. I don't guess it being two quarts low on oil helps either. Even more so when it ONLY HOLDS 4. Stupid slant-eyed bastards. But not to worry. I have a brand new motor sitting in the shop to go in this week. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif I can't wait to get my other Zuk going. It'll have the "big block" 1.8 MPFI motor in it. /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif On another sad note, the "Fozzy locker" will have to come out of the rear. I have destroyed the 3rd member with it, as well as the rear wheel bearings. It was fun, but the budget spool is killing my tires. Ya'll gotta get me some more info on the backyard budget truck. I'm getting tired of this import caca.
