Ahem. And what will this next car be? :p

it's rear-wheel-drive, and that's all i'm saying until i'm in possession of it.

i still need to answer your questions on the sc300 from a couple months ago. but i'm reminded- there was a red right-hand-drive soarer parked a block from my house yesterday. bride seat, boost controller, nice stance and wheels, and somehow washington plates on the thing. should have taken a picture; i'd love to know how the owner got it imported and regged.

Oh, gee, with that much information anyone could deduce it easily! *g*

&Ooooh, sneaky. As it goes now I'm halfway tempted to just fill in Brendan on the performance I want from the suspension and tell him that hey, he knows what he's doing, go to town and fill me in later. It seems like a nice cop-out route that still gets results.

The tires are also almost out of tread. We'll get a nice crappy set that'll at least get me through the rainy season, and once those go dead [and assuming I've got the cash on hand at the time, which is looking likely enough], wheels!

Damn that slippery slope. But if I keep this car forever like I fully intend, it's a worthwhile investment.

..Theoretically.

for cheap all-weather tires, i love the falken ziex ze-512, if you're looking for a suggestion. grip is good, traction limits predictable, and treadwear very good. had them in a 225-width on both 240sx's and the bmw, and don't regret any of the cash outlay.
