    Reliabilty, Speed, What Else Coule You Ask For — from day one the car was an awesome sports car. with very little work to the suspension it corners like a dream. 80+ on almost a ninety degree and the car just rips apart the turn with just sport springs and a set of traction ta tires. with a pair of performance mufflers its give that low growl from the pipes that reminds you of a muscle car firing up. put an air intake on it and it gets real throtty on the low end and increases and already great throttle response.

    Pros: its american made everything is good. when you drop hammer it goes. when you have to turn fast it throws you around a turn.

    Cons: if you mess something up it will take out other things as well. everything is linked together closely. like if the dog bone (torque damper) goes your output shaft goes then your front end alignment is jacked.
