Your motor is toast at 227k? What the **** did you do to it, run sawdust for oil and and gasoline instead of diesel???? Your motor shouldn't be anywhere near toasted at 227k.

What does racing have anything to do with toasting a motor or trans unless your beating the **** out of it?


FYI, our 8k lb trucks are about the slowest trucks on the road (aside from a 12v cummins). Who do you think your impressing?
