You shoulda seen his fuel line! It was seriously about 15" long and the car still couldn't make 5 min. He ran out of gas in both qualifies. It was plenty fast though. Driver skills own.

Not only that. If you inspect the car closely, you'll be amazed to find out that he also had a reserved fuel tank hidden in it.

I once suggested him to use the waterhose for a fuel-line on his car. Guess he didn't take it, yet implemented my idea, indeed.

cheers,

Why that sneaky %#$&*$%#!

Maybe thats why he keeps it dirty so we can't see the hidden things with the naked eye.

well, people usually buy new cars when they come out
I bet most people on this forum will go and grab the 4 when it does come out! Most people still do eventually get the new model...

It depends on you really, but modding the mtx-3 with JDM mods will be quite expensive. A full option JDM car will cost well over the price of the car itself

yeah and thats money i dont have at the time.

i'll keep my mtx3 for a while, im having a daughter, yeah me!!!

so it will last me, besides the guys i run with some run impulses and win so i think if i get my car blinged out i will hunt them down with ease, the only top notch cars out here with me are g4's, and 705's, i think i'll be in good shape for a while.

so should i get all the aluminum parts from 3racing, kfactory, the less expensive brands and get the major parts from the real good brands.

i cant imagine brases, pulleys, and sway bars Etc. making a difference in the durability of your car? besides the weight what is the harm in the less expensive hop ups?

am i wrong,
