    I never said anything about how high or low tech it is, performance parts on a performance car are all that I'm talking about.

    What I don't know, however, is how useful air suspension is in hi-po conditions. GM and Lamborghini likes the magnetic ride control stuff for their hi-po outlets, but does anyone actually use airbags for cars designed for track use? What do GTx cars use?

        A car that can't move unless you have to modify it is a failure at its single most important purpose.

        It's not a statement regarding the look of something, it's what the thing is. It's a high performance car, and one that can't very well car.

        The look of the wheels is opinion, sure, you can love them and I can hate them. But the utility of that car (mainly its suspension) is inarguably and intrinsically impaired.

            There we go, like I said someone went to artistic with the photo editing and it brought out a lot of reflections.

              Went and test drove this and checked it out,
              I asked if anything was wrong and he said no....
              Here is what is wrong with it..
              -the fan clutch is totally shot to where at full operating temp a light touch brought it to a complete stop
              -the brakes are fucked, they squeal and vibrate when braking
              -the interior isn't as clean as it looks, the door panels are falling apart
              -ac doesn't work and neither dos any of the three switches next to that button.
              -the vent pipes that bring air to the vents army hooked up, you can here it blow but cant feel it from any of the 3 sections
              -the drivers window wouldn't go all the way down and sounded weak under load.
              -radio didn't work
              -muffler mounts where snapped
              -a little rust around the taillight
              -head lights are cracked and dis colored because this
              -leaks a bit of oil front pan
              -passanger rear door doesn't open from the inside
              -hood doesn't want to stay open.

              But it runs really smooth and shifted great. Pulled hard and only went a waffleswaffleswaffleswaffles hair past the half way mark(I would assume the fan clutch)

              Would be a great donor car
              He said he would do 2000, but I would have been closer to 1500 if I was gonna buy it

                  Can I get a couple of you local folks opinions on M20 strokers? I have this B23 head, and I think I may want to keep it for future shenanigans.

                          Yours will be on the road sooner. At least you already did suspension! If I had more time, it would have been done already, but alas...
