good decision, but also consider that your mates ed might be stock and not have as much as go as your car would, so yours with a spool could be alot more fun.
as for respecting the car around the corners and in the wet, well i doubt it. youll see what i mean when you drive the spooled eb


My mates EB has had some minor work done (Pacy Comps, 2.5" exhaust, pod) but will give me an idea of what a spool will be like, and whether i want it

I read that through a few times, and it still doesn't make sense.



hahaha i reread that and was laughing for 3 minutes.
what i was trying to say is that having a spool will eventually f#*k up heaps of things in your car, and in the same way burnouts will f#*k your car. and from what i read this guy tends to do a bit of thrashing to his car, so either way stuff in his car are gonna get f#*kd , so you might aswell make most of the car while its not f#*kd. this is where the spool comes in

note: i added as much as fullstops and commers as i could for that to make more sense


Thrashing is an understatement, my ED HAS to be a monday build to cope with the s**t that i have thrown at it. i cane the car, but if i go the spool, will respect the car around corners and in the wet. im gunna go for a ride in a mates spooled EB and make my decision from that, im not 100% sure, but that should give me an insight to what it will be like

dude, thats s**t and you know it. if you wanna wrap you and your car arround a pole your definalty going the right way about it. it is totally up to you, but after seeing your driving i'd be against you getting one.

Well, i will at least respect it until I am used to having it there, and the way it reacts, and one of the first places i will be going if i get it done is to a skidpan day (so i can get a feel for the car with a locked diff), and Mitch, i dont do that s**t on narrow streets, 99% of the time its on wide open streets
