It was actually cheaper for me to just swap to the 8.8 - I tried to build the 7.5 only to break it. Swapped to the 8.8 for less than it cost me to build the 7.5 with tlok and gears. And all it took to break the 7.5 was a CAI, tune, and a set of drag radials. Broke it before the end of the summer.

Honestly you used to be able to get them for under 1K at several places but not anymore.
