Thank you TakeItToTheLimit for the compliment . After seeing how flimsy these sleds are , I am surprised that these actually were able to finish any of the MIRA events. That may be just pure luck. The original driver on this sled indicated that the motor in this one was the most reliable motor that he had ever seen. Never was worried about blowing it up. Maybe more worried about the chassis coming apart. Looking at the original hood , this sled had never been on its top , but looked as though it had been over some berms , taking out below the radiator glass.
