Right Guys, Here it is

You get given 3k, and with this 3k you can buy things for your car, you cant sell your car, then use tha towards a new car, you can only spend 3k on things for your car for either modifying or maintaining

ETA: you cant buy new cars, Just Parts etc

so come on then, what would you spend 3k on for YOUR car?

if it was me, id get whatever pulley is fucked on my drivebelt replaced, get all the bushes replaced underneath, to make it better to drive, get the gearbox replaced, and then once the maintainance side of things has been sorted, as i reckon all tha lot above would have been about 500

id get my dash flocked, some decent tunes, nice seats, and generally spruce up the outside of it too, make the car more enjoyable to me Smile



what would you do?

Crease - i've got a friggin annoying squeal, at about 2,200 rpm, then again at about 3,000 rpm, then i dont know if it does it again between there and the limiter cos engine noise is louder than a little squeal.

XU10-J4TE engine (2ltr turbo) (i'm currently at 196,400miles)
a load of box section to build myself a roll cage
some seriously sticky rubber - after the J4TE engine, i'd like to stay on the road for longer than 2 mins lol

Some decent rubber, R888's perhaps? [anything better out there?]


There are 2 types of padestrian, the Quick, and the Dead!

SOC - u cant buy another car! not even to donorise Razz thats the fun of the game!

the top gear thing sounds good, trying to mod to get times down on a track/strip?



id like to do a sub 1k car challenge, where u buy a car nd then drive to various tracks doing challenges, and then a trip to the nurburgring in em, see whos car lasts the distance etc!

is the squeal a belt slip? or maybe a clutch? fuck knos! my cars got all sorts of odd noises, they make it unique! haha

so ud turbo urs, then fuck about in it? i dont think u can get a better road legal tyre, pretty good shout, how about lowering it and stiffening it all up?

I'd buy some JATO rockets:



See how quick I could get the merc to go. preferably with some kind of jump towards the end of the run, there are stories of someone doing 300mph in a corvette in death valley. The jato rockets arent that expensive..
