root around, that thread is around here - it took me a bit of time to find it! I did a lot of reading up on the car recently as I was considering picking one up. The general concensus is that it is still a competitive car as long as you are running stock or spec (17.5 or 21.5). A lot of the parts are still available as well (I think even through Tower), and the suspension parts are the same as the cyclone. I've got an inquiry in to buy one too, but haven't heard back from the seller as its a slightly older thread...
