Well, after having one for my first car four years ago i was not very impressed. Front bearing was leaking, would not hold a tune. So i replaced it with sportwerks turmoil and jammin truggy. Now i've really upgraded and got a mugen mbx5t and a 8ight 2.0.

On the track your lucky to get 2-3 gallons out of them...
Playing around you might get a little more.
