    LOL amen to the spare set of tires. AND SWEET MOTHER OF GOD YOU HAVE ALOT OF CREDITS!! Haha.

    So far nothing is sticking out aside from the usual items. Cam Ledges make my heart sink though!!
  6. I also plan to keep this car for a while. I paid 17.5k cash and I have almost put that much in it since. I will never get my money back but I have enjoyed the build. Cant wait to finish so I can enjoy the ridiculous investment.

    Got to Refer new members and know when to quit with Rock paper scissors. I just played for like 15 mins and won 400 credits...lol
