Well i hope comming from a tc you can handle that power of this car...... lol

Na there were a few problems with the breaks but they sound have been fixed by the time they got 30k miles. And yes its a very relaible car for DD. My SS is my DD and i race every weekend....iam sure i have over 300 (street/drag) or more races on my car and never had an major problems. 1 water pump gasket... Boosting 24psi is alittle to much for that gasket.... but all and all very good car.

I was beat by RKRamos.
