    Pump gas is very inconsistent and unreliable. Racing fuel is worth the extra cost in the long run IMO. I would rather spend an extra $1000 per year on fuel instead of $5000 on a new motor.

    A lot of that "hike" in in springs and shocks and how the car is scaled. I had a car with 12 hole locations so it allowed a bunch of angles for my lowers and nothing ever made the car hike up more.
