Get the etek.. It will be worth the wait
Oh, I plan to get it. I just wasn't sure if I really wanted to hang in there with my mech or fix the VS1 and start playing electronic again since I enjoy it much more. Pretty much, I'm looking at around $35+/- for the Tadao board and the spring pack, or $55+/- if I get the Tadao AND the upgrade chip for it. What it would cost for one trip to the field, more or less. I think I can sacrifice that and be happier in the long run.
