    This is really good advice. I was glad I had seen and driven a few other cars prior to buying mine. To know you've got a good one it helps to experience the not-so-good ones first.

    I'd be on a flight ASAP to go check it out. For 50,000 you have a lot to lose if the car turns out to be not as shown in the photos. There is a good chance you'll find some issue with the car that...

    Cool, I appreciate the additional info. The work that you're putting into these custom brake setups is pretty extensive so it's really interesting to know more about what goes into it.
