    Ya only problem was it was a crappy motor. Such a wierd motor to, was the economy performace motor with that i-vtec E crap. Was fun to drive though, and the shifter placement was neat, even though alot of people didnt like it.

    Buck, you're 100% right about Honda's. There may actually be tons of clean/fast Honda's, but for every one of those, there are about 1000 riced out ones.

    But with that said, the S2K >>> Any Subaru ever made.

    painting rotor is straight-up STUPID. Painting exhaust, is a different matter, depending on what you're trying to achieve..
    I painted mine stove/grill black, to 'avoid visual detection' by local assinine law enforcement.. it works quite well.

    yeah i make fun of him every time i see him for his rotor idea, i tried to tell him it would look like he wanted it to until he used his brakes then its gonna flake off and turn to powder. And painting exhaust orange i just dont see a point in, black... alright makes more sense for your application.

    Just a couple of shots from our visit to a downtown park today, reason? It has a wicked playground for our daughter to tire herself out at.

    Thanks, I rarely get the chance to go out and just take photos anymore. Life exploded with business the second I started enjoying it.

    You can see how black makes a flowmaster and 3"" pipe "disappear", basically.

    Yeah, orange... someone needs to hit him on the head.
