    Turbo Regal Reign comming to an end?

    EDIT:Upgraded my WinBook 802 tablet tonight to Windows 10 and PL seems to run fine. Plugged it in, it did a driver search and I guess found the ones I had on it from 8.1.

    Broke my fuel line

    That is the feed line from the frame rail to the motor. The ones I linked go all the way from the fuel tank to where that line connects. You could also go braided, but the stock lines on these cars are not that bad.
