Ya. But I think that's normal. 1st and second gears. It just idles (revs) up between shifts if I'm steady on part throttle. If I'm getting on it then it doesn't do it.

is that including what you made back by selling the wheels/tires when you switched to new ones? Though the Savini's were probably half of that amount right off the get go.
