That has slowly been dawning on me. The only problem is there's no convenient way to plug the car in at night so I have to carry the battery up 8 stories to charge it in my dorm room. Then again i don't drive a lot so it could be doable.

Does anyone know how long one can drive with a deep cycle battery? Approximate range? What do you do if it runs out?

Hahahaha great. I really want to do the other side now, and paint over the stock red paint with mountbatten pink.

I think I'll take the car off the market. There's nothing wrong as long as I charge the battery and don't stray too far.

He gave me a dollar. A blood-soaked dollar.
I cannot get the spot out but it's okay; It still works in the store
