    They did, well an inline 5 cylinder, except for the Alpha which had the 5.3l RPO LH8.

    Just noticed when I went to pick up dinner that the drivers headlight bulb is out. It's only a year old, lol. Guess I'll be pulling the housings tomorrow and changing both bulbs.

    On another note, filled up with 22 gallons of E85 today @$2.09/gal
    The last 3 tanks were Mobil 93 octane from our spring break trip to New Orleans. She missed the E85, and I can feel the the difference, even at only 50% ethanol content because of still having 9 gallons of 93 left in the tank.

    still waiting on the machine shop to complete the assembly balance...

    got bored last weekend, sunday amazon finally delivered the part i needed for my RC car.
    they were two days late...:mad:

    then a good 20min modifying that part to fit.

    then a good 2+hrs tearing up my backyard!

    sun in my eyes, using a tree to get it out of my eyes.
    Didn't see my fire pit, basically a 55 gallon drum trimmed down.

    Left a big dent in the fire pit, rc seemed fine...
    kept rocking it!

    I hit that drum maybe 3-4 times at full speed...
    :jester:

    finally when i was finishing up, i tossed the rc onto the ground and herd a clank

    then noticed the front end had a bit of angle to it...

    Right at the weak spot! :rolleyes:
    to be fair, i was warned about it, and to get the reinforcement plate installed.
    forgot about it and here i am. :D

    so new chassis ordered, and the reinforcement plate to protect that area...
    ugg

    Crossing my fingers for some parts this weekend, otherwise i'm going to be bored again.


    Oh and if anyone is interested how much these things cost: https://www.rovanrc.com/1-5-buggy
    Price went up a bit since i ordered mine back in feb.
    Mine: https://www.rovanrc.com/product-rv305a-34

    I also have a coupon code that might still work, if someone is actually interested that is. ;)

    Pretty tough thing, i'm very impressed for the price.
    And i paid about $410 for mine, shipped.

    Parts everywhere for them.
    Just use the search term Baja 5b in ebay, and amazon.

    I have been addicted to RC cars since i was a little kid. :angels2:
