    Yeah, he'll be faster but take pride in the fact that his car may explode while you race him...

    I hate DSM's. I used to own one.

    I would take a GSX, the only thing that is unreliable is the drive train, the engine is a beast. There is a kid that lives like 6 houses down from me with a white, totally stock looking GSX that put down 460hp, and runs low 11's. The thing is absolutely nuts. 4G63 ftw.

    the GSX has the 4G63 in it, AWD, and it costs like $1K lol......what a perfect starting platform.
    embattled, we prevail...only victory exhaled.
