Default SON OF A B***H!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well here goes.
bought a sirio tup af 5 porter.
unintentionally cut the d**m crankshaft too short. tried to order it for two weeks no one in the damn states had it. finally found one in singapore. took three weeks to get it. finally got here, cut the crank the right length this time and started breaking her in. 7th tank she was looking good. started leaning her out. ssssmokinnnn!!!!!! i noticed that my rx pack was really weak. so instead of doing what any other "normal" person would do, STOP AND CHARGE THE PACK, my dumb ass went to the toolbox, grabbed the stock AA pack and put the smallest, flimsy ass zip tie i could find and tied it to my shock tower. what a damn idiot!!! 8th tank hit a bump, battery pack came loose, wire went under tire, came unplugged, you know the rest of the story. full throttle, up a small 2 ft hill (grass), BOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!! into the fence. i was about 150 yards away so i had to run the fastest damn 150 yards in my life. so fast i could have beaten maurice williams AND justin gatlin. engine ran full throttle for about 15-20 seconds. thank the lord almighty i was running it richer than oprah winfrey. here's the aftermath.

Yup, actually that put to rest the theory that NTC3 is a fragile car. I mean damn you broke 2 wooden planks and with the little damage the car had....yup could be a lot worse!
