History

After getting fed up with the FWD of the spyder, my dad and I both bought an AWD car. He's more about form and functionality, and I am about looks as well as performance. Naturally, he got a 1g, and I picked up a 2g. Here is the mod page for the car, which can be used as a model to see what works and what is not needed. Everything is a genuine name brand part, except for where noted. I didn't pay for the logo of a company on parts that I felt it was not needed, like piping for exampe. I will try to provide specific details, but don't hesitate to shoot me an email.
