Why buy new when you can buy from Ron, Joseph, and Dave

And I'll get bored and want a new car someday too, so I'm sure I'll redo my collection as well

Referring to the long shock bodies, go with the short ones in rear so you get more down travel. I have the problem of the long bodies bumping when I use shims under the pivot balls. Unfortunately it's hard to find pink or orange shock bodies stateside, or I'd go with the short ones...

by not having them you will effectively get more droop..about 2mm worth.. I know that some time I run a ride hight of 5.5mm with a droop of 6~8mm some times

trust me it's worth it.....I have been using more droop lately and this car seems to like a lot of it..!!

You can get them...just Hit Steve up....it's the same part # as the small shock bodies...just with a O at the end of it..

or a "P" for the pink ones

60000 yen doesnt seem too bad, $515 for the car... Wish I had an infinite wallet that always had cash in it, I'd be sure to get #69

Yea..I know just getting the # "69" would be worth it

the more I look at the little shops the more of the Webs I find..?? kind of weird since this was only going to be a car you could get on the net..?
