well, it won't be far away... maybe.Still upset I didnt get a job in time to buy your P5 :/
yes, yes I am. oh.. wait.yeah he's a protege crazy kind of guy too. the p5 will be in good hands
I've dabbled in the platform for years.. since 03.Out of curiosity, is the new owner a Mazda guy/car guy? Think he'll do your P5 justice?
I know that these things shouldn't matter when one sells their car, but when I was almost about to put mine up for sale, that last thought kind of came up a lot. Of all the shit my car puts me through (and still puts me through lol), I found ways around them or fixed them. Learned a lot on that thing. Makes me wonder what someone else would've done if they didn't like it as much as me.
Oh well. At the end of the day, nothing's really ours forever; just to hang on to for a while.
highway use? just holler at dale lolOfficially/unofficially I am/will be the new owner. I'm excited to get it from Phil.
For me this will be a daily driver as I build/put the msp together and attempt to take off the daily use of my truck. I have something like 55k miles on my 2016 Silverado, which isn't BAD... but it's not good for me. the body is showing the signs of highway use which pisses me off.
Anyways, as for plans- I don't particularly have any for now, just drive. But i'll stick with this thread for updates and maintenance logs and how-to's.
I will bug him everyday. lol. here's my temporary replacement until i figure out my next move. 04 forester xt. hauls balls but doesn't handle like a go kart one bit.Welp, hope that last day was as good as it could've been :^(
Don't forget to pest DP to get it all cleaned up lol
no thanks. you already know my deal. too rusty for my tastes to work on and not modding it anymore than it already came. i dont have this sort of time or patience. I don't need 4 needy whips. these things aren't as easy to deal with as proteges lol. the goal is to create time for my msp needs, not make more work to cock block myselfthey make SO many suspension parts for this car. rear subframes, braces, coilovers, control arms etc etc
drove it to work this am- i enjoy these cars quite a bit but god damn is the highway cruising terrible(transmission sound @ 70-80mph) It needs a 6th gear badly. oh well. It was a good time.Sold! And Damian already put MSP seats in it after owning it for about 2 hours lol.
I actually have this in the transmission that is going into the msp lol. but yes that's something i could and will likely do.You could do a fifth gear swap from a 626.
You can access the gears from the side of the transmission without removing it.
