Default Just no keeping me happy.

As it turns out being on the cheese for only two weeks has given me more than enough time to plunge into the depths of craigslist and buy something I don't need. Given the fact I have a sled that works perfectly well and my previous experience with handfuls some of you may say that this was a foolish move(and I would probably agree). Logic and common sense be damned!

That looks like something sledcrusher would ride! Your missing a Monster sticker!





What motor? 144" I am assuming?

I say that it's a good thing you got a new sled early in the season. Now you hold the moral high ground when bitching at other douchers (namely Mookie and Baller) about buying sleds.

That thing is far from stock. Nonstick tunnel wrap to keep the sled light in the deep stuff. 2.5" Challenger Extreme (perfect for diamond pounding the super-slab in Douglas County.) Mountain grab bar. Powder coated spindles. Suspicious looking chaincase protector that I'm going to call a drop & roll. Shitty tether..... seems like all handfuls come with this.

You forgot the ultra aggressive side panel cooling vents too.

As far as I know with this particular motor it is just a regular rebuild with one of the Indy Specialties monoblock cylinders on it. I believe the main thing he does with the cylinders is to reenforce and slightly change the shape of the cylinder skirt for a tighter tolerance.

Hey Gerbil congrats on the new rotoracer. I went ahead and bought a new extra heavy duty tow strap, and stock in the company that makes them. I am slightly intimidated by the urban camo wrap though. Here is one of your favorite songs to help you celebrate your new purchase.

IS does a lot of crank work as well, they call them Torque Master engines or something like that, come with a 3 year warranty.

Foolish purchase though, you really only need the 600 RMK to show up Cuzzi's new M this year

As far as I know this one doesn't have any crank work or the long rod kit in it but I may see if I can upgrade to that motor if the price is reasonable.

The truck is better now after new rings and pistons (50k miles is long enough to expect rings to last right?)

I think he wants like $3k+exchange for a bottom end.
