Different, yet familiar.

ZX3 is lighter, ST is super powerful.

Ha cool, so your dad is an enthusiast too! Glad you had fun. Forgot to tell you, the car doesn't have ABS - you need to learn how to modulate your brakes in panic stops otherwise you'll lock up.

The BSD is something I spoke to nwford about - he really should do it if he's planning on tracking the car.

im going to switch to a thicker oil next change due to small under hood engine noise and over 100k miles, removing the ballance shaft would increase oil pressure also.

It's actually recommended that you go with synthetic oil for higher mileage cars. Unless you're talking about a synthetic oil that's thicker.

"What do you mean by small under hood engine noise"

Felix can weigh in on the BSD.
