thanks for the input chris. i lost my best friend due to a 110+mph crash. its just not worth it to drive fast or stupid unless you are at a track with medical help on hand.
this little car is going to get worked on this week. i got a box of parts. mostly looks like bearings and junk. idk i have to sort through it. went to the shop and he was supposed to have it all ready. well. lets just say, he wasnt even there when i got there. so i took the box he had set out and went on my way. ill post pix soon
