    I had a guy at work offer me $7000 for my AllTrac. That'd be enough to get me a >95 Lexus SC300 with a five speed swap and a Supra turbo engine. But I love the AWD and the rarity of my car. Blah. I'm just going to trade it for a Metro and get it over with.

    Quite honestly, I'd go with the 3S-GTE, if I wanted to do a bit of work. It's the AllTrac/ MR2 turbo engine, and has the same HP potential as the Supra six. It weighs about 1/3 less, though, and since it's shorter, will completely fit behind the front axle, which means a very low front polar moment, which means VERY snappy handling. In the JGTC Supras, they use 3S-GTE engines.

    the SC300 would be pretty nasty... But I have to agree, living in NH myself, rear wheel drive is tough. Especialy high HP RWD. You'd almost definitley need a winter car.

    I've heard you speak of your car, but I haven't seen it. SC300 would be pimp, but AWD>RWD every day of the muthafuckin week. In California, or Florida, or any other Southern state, I would chose the Lexus for comfort/ammenities.

    original or new mini? cause the New mini weighs like 2600 lbs vs an old school early 90s Geo metro hatchback which weighs around 1800 some pounds.

    Geo Metro TEH ULTRA UBER AWESOME SLEEPER...EVER...
