I knew what I was getting into, kinda. The complete, running engine was $900. So even with a fresh rebuild/seal/update at $1000 that’s still around what an updated one would cost and if I prefer, I can run it as-is for club or WKA. I don’t plan on RMax USA competition yet.
I’ll be at the GoPro Motorplex meeting and we’ll see what they allow locally and not…worst case, I’ll race “for fun” and get DQ’d. I doubt they’ll check the engine before every race and they’ll probably be happy to see another entry fee.
