I think you forget there is a junkyard motor in my car, (hence why it's not more modded, that $2k setback...) The original one was starved of oil in a corner... I don't trust this motor, and am honestly afraid to drive the car hard. (Even after 20k put on this motor.)

I drove the SVTF on Grattan about 5 times, is that hard enough? (Not the coned autocross.) I overheated the stock brakes on my SVTF in the UP chasing the Rally, and raging roads north of Houghton. (That day I walked two STis, a C4S4 and a B5 S4 on 26) and that's why I went to Centric rotors and hawk pads on that car. I've driven this car on Waterford Hills after I drove the Yellow Jacket SRT Challenger, and a couple 392 SRT Chargers there for Automobile magazine.

The next car I buy will get tracked, I just don't want to put a 3rd motor in this car, and honestly, since that 2nd motor went in, I have had no urge to mod this car. I'm just now getting it paid down enough to be able to dump it off.

Also I stated that I hate the way drums look, and don't like them, do I need to give more reasons?

If it weren't yellow, I'd still have it. In fact if dip your car was around back then, I'd probably have a matte white one...

The guy wants to get rid of it, for pretty cheap. Has like 150k on it now. It's got a new front bumper and the hatch is re-done. I think he wanted like $3500?
