Ok, good to know. Now, I know the v3 has a launch control. Does this work well? I'm talking more along the lines of destroying rear wheel drive cars in town from light to light.

Suspension will be my next mod. And As far as experience and skill, looks like I will need to learn quickly. I obviously want to do good, but I want my car like I want it if that makes any sense. As long as I'm having fun, I'm happy.

Sounds like your timing belt hasn't been done, you need to get that sorted.

I'm going to go through the receipts that I have and see when and if it was changed.

If you track car. You will need real brakes and ducts. Or you will toast rotors and calipers.

Even heat from one track session will beat em up.
