Going to drop one of my cars hopefuly this summer,

Dropping the Mark VIII for a 03-05 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP, I love the supercharger and you don't see factory superchargers too often.

That'll become my winter beater/commuter. Then I have a few plans this summer for the mustang. Lightened flywheel/racing clutch is being installed this month, I wonder how that will affect anything.

PK, awesome cars!

Is it just ThunderbirdJunkie or do you have the Super Duty wheels and brakes on the Grand Prix?

ThunderbirdJunkie just missed out on a '93 KLR250 for $400. Needed a CDI box and a little work

He should hold out for another XR400 though.

+1 million to that. JDM is japanese domestic market. nothing special. the ricers think jdm means "apply to civic, gain 100hp". frickin ridiculous. i laugh at them all, whether they can beat me in a race or not lol

Bad news folks, a few months ago my 78 corvette that ive been restoring and just had painted, was in a car accident, 4 car collision caused by the guy i rear-ended, it did some upper nose damage, ruined the freshly repaired bumper and bent some supports. i finally saved up enough to fix the car and its in the works now.

its getting a face lift with a 82 style nose and custom style front spoiler, it should be done in the next week or two. great timing because i lost my job AND unemployment, so i am flat broke at the moment (shelved the T-maxx because of a broken spur, that kind of broke)

Sad to hear shark,I hope everything works out . My summer daily driver is a '89 vette and even the thought of a car accident is pretty scary. With the crap weather where I live though it spends most of its time wrapped up in the garage. For everything else I have my shiny white&chromed '77 F150 4wd that is a beast! Big ol' Yoko's eat mountains! Never drive em but also a '89 pontiac T/A and a '80 F150 (302 w/cam&4barrel etc. etc.) that couldnt pass a gas station unless you got out and pushed it.

Not this ricer. 11 years old, still looks like a current model (well it was until a year ago). Still as the Honda F1 team intended, only rims added by me. Don't tar us all with that brush, not all JDM folks are nuggets that think fart cans are where its at.

I refer you this post... http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/post...asp?id=8461359

And this video of when my car had a 'fart can' on it, which was made of pure titanium and gave real gains. Was too loud though.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SwwmjP8MYQ[/youtube]

It now has a very pretty but sensible exhaust on it.

They're very fragile and prone to problems. The initial models even had trouble with the 165hp from the supercharged model (Cooper S). They did improve them later, but the reputation stuck.

Foxy, you still have your S2000? Because awhile ago you mentioned that you might sell it due to the higher tax rate?

As long as softballs fit I was okay with the size. Maybe can go up in size in the future.
