    I saw Bills pictures on Facebook; looked savage.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    we all hope the used controller will bring it back to life.
    running with next to no oil for an unknown period of time is a concern.

    plates do lock up (wheel hop when reversing and turning tight circles) and does'nt when fuse is pulled, so hoping its a controller fault forcing it to go full on all the time.

    fingers and toes crossed

    Pleased it brought it back to life also.. Phew..
    relatively inexpensive vs what it could have been.

    no hoppy stuff, and 4wd when it needs to be.. Just a little too late now snows melting.. doh!
