but we will cross that bridge when i find out wtf it is...

lol like u never flogged a car before... i dont think there is anyone on here that hasent...


yep, all the time.

And it costs me in higher maintenance costs. I recently ruined $1000 of brake rotors in only about 30 minutes of track action.

Play hard, pay hard. Get used to it.

but that s**t happens with a used car. unless you know the previous owners and how they treated it (hardly going to happen) your taking a gamble.

My EB for example, 3 months after i bought it the motor started to get a bad bottom end knock and metal shavings in the oil. motor lasted another 18 months though then i swapped it still running though
i serviced the auto twice since i owned it but the previous owner didn't so i cracked then engine braking band piston.
and the single wheeler diff blew up 2 years after i bought it due to lack of maintainence.
