I have had the car for about five months and absolutely love it. It is MC40 #934. I purchased it from a dealer in NJ and had it shipped down. Since then, It has been nothing but a blast and is getting better every day. Most of the mods you see were put on by the previous owner.

You should make an intro thread (if you havent already) so that everyone knows your sort of new around these parts.

Yeah i was at Track One today and we got to talking about your car

shaggy11 08-08-2012 04:03 AM

Intro done!

Oh no... good talking or bad talking? Haha they found nothing but problems. Glad they found them though!

Chase 08-08-2012 01:24 PM

haha, just that you need different tail lights and we gots to fix some of the oil leaks haha

shaggy11 08-08-2012 02:18 PM

Hmmm tail lights... they didnt say anything about that! Haha
The oil leak is at the port for the oil cooler. Its so small that it hasnt affected oil level in two months. I plan on addressing it when i change my oil.

Chase 08-08-2012 04:45 PM

yeah for sure. Yeah im the one who brought up the tail lights haha

rickyr53 08-10-2012 07:13 AM

Wait! Does that body kit have wide arches?
Whats your gauge set up look like?

kipperhughes 08-10-2012 10:06 AM

looks like a zeemax body kit so has wide arches if it is

Chase 08-10-2012 10:47 AM

its a knock off zeemax? yes it has wide arches, the fitment isnt bad at all. Im just not a fan of the hood scoop, tail lights, and some stickers haha, but i have already told him that. Also needs wider wheels.

But he is off to a good start. Just gotts get somethings sorted.
