hahah you bought an awd boat. there is a few of them in town. the twin turbo ones are ok. single turbo conversion better still. they are still too heavy to be anything good. assuming yours is the 3800lb end of the scale, wow....

and wow u beat a puny 2L skyline? feel proud.

seriously don't come here and talk shit :roll:

I wonder if that's why there was a dead troll in your trunk at the meet.
