kurt/raw power made some kickazz threads back in the day. and now i am privy to see some magical crap that people do, with traded-in/blind purchased games.

so here we begin...with a special F*** You to all things duracell batteries. :)

so, someone removed a factory battery pack that i assume, was corroded. installed a new battery pack. used Duracells (c'mon, MAN!). dated good thru 2025, 2 of them, of course, blew up and ruined the new battery pack.

but here's the catch. they didn't remove the board from the game. just weak soldered that remote pack in-game, in real time:

       ...and basically anything 50% off eBay/painside value
