My parents picked up the SHO and I took it for a little spin this afternoon. I was very happy with the preformance then the secondaries opened and I was really happy! It is a nice turbo/supercharger like whine with a nice kick in the ass to go with it.

I still miss my bird thow [Image: frown.gif] it is just not the same.Hmmmmm oh well this thing should really be able to fry some rice!

now adam, don't make Matt and I smack you when you break the differential pin in that mazda tranny or you don't get the 60K done and you end up having to do a head job like I do...

My dad and I test-drove a SHO, I probably would've bought it if the clutch wasn't going bad ($900 repair). The way we found out is he went up a hill from a standstill but was in 3rd gear by accident. Instead of revving really low and/or stalling, it went up to about 2500 rpm and clutch smoke started billowing out form under the hood!

The JACKASS who was selling it started bragging about how he was doing all these burnouts with it, doing 120+, and stuff. Come on, you don't tell a prospective buyer how much fun had beating the shit out the car you're trying to sell! Ah well, I like the TC more anyway.

segfaultxr7 I would be glad to here him say that! It is best he was telling the truth so you did not buy it. I get the feeling this SHO will need a clutch soon it has 118k and feels like the original.
