    I don't know about SC but here on NC there is not too many DSMs out there,i been in the game since 2006 and never heard about any single DSM meeting or anything here in NC! its so sad but its the true that we don't have a big community about this platform! like in some others places!

    As far as I know, DSM's aren't popular anywhere in the South. I'm in Alabama, never have DSM meets either.

    Even 420a parts are scarce. It's kinda sad how everyone destroys these cars and no one make the right parts to fix what idiots have done! And the cars go straight to the scrap yard, not even to the junkyard! I have to fab some parts because I can't find them!

    But any way sorry to thread-jack and rant. I just know that when I buy DSM's in the future I'm putting myself in a bad position just for pleasureLOL

    I live in camden, sc.

    There is a time attack 2g in aiken,SC

    YUCKi performance is in lexington, sc

    There is a car meet almost every fri in rockhill, SC. At the "speed shop" or pep boys. Look them up facebook.

    Otherwise the cars n coffee of columbia is another one I plan to start going to now that i finally have my car back from the shop (3yrs at different shops) still needs some TLC but at least its back and running again.

    Also my car is built for road racing and I live 16 miles from carolina motorsports park. If you're ever interested in racing there i'll see about joining you.

    Paul with the time attack eclipse races there also but he's currently working on fixing a mishap from last weekends hill climb so might be a bit before he's back out.

    Greenville, NC here. I know about 6 or 7 locally, and prob 4-5 within a hour away. They are still out there, just getting a lot harder to find people that mess with these cars anymore. I've been playing with them for 18+ years, and everyone else I know at least 6 years. Just isn't any new people jumping into these cars nowadays...

    Nah your not jacking the thread LOL. I was just curious. I understand what your saying, I just did the bushings on the clutch pedal and bought a special lock washer, because I refuse to weld it, works perfectly! Built a pipe for the blow off to go back into the Intake because the previous owner deleted it. Trust me I understand exactly what your saying. I'm actually in the process of selling this car but the market is so niche.

    If anyone has car meets they plan to go to please post up so we can start getting together.

    Just finished installing my carbonetics side skirts and front lip today, after a year + of them sitting in my garage.

    It's because there's a person who owns a junkyard in NC near charlotte that goes around buying literally any kind of fair priced DSM, either himself or his people he has scouring around for him, from Florida, up to like WV. So anywhere in pretty much the entire area especially around here, he buys them just to hack them up, rape them for parts, and crush the shell afterwords.


    And people still support this dude. Now we're feeling the effects.

    Yeah. Unmentioned dude is a POS tbh. Sold me a bum motor. I kept messaging him trying to play it cool and give him chance after chance to own up, and each time he was like "looks normal to me".


    The exhaust ports were sopping wet with oil, dirt all over the engine, on a "0 miles freshly rebuilt motor".


    But yeah. Glad it's not just me. Lol.

    Dang man thats crazy. But i have noticed every motor he gets says its been rebuilt or runs great. Like seriously how do you know this when most of the time the cars are missing half of the things needed to run. But oh well i guess. Im lucky that i even found my gsx befor he did, bc it was only like 1200$.

    Yeah I know who you're talking about!
    a few years ago i bought some parts from him, but sadly for me,always received the wrong item!
    only one time i got the right part,but because had to pick it up by myself at his junk yard!
    i still remember last time asking for a pic of the flywheel that i was pretending to buy from him! he refused to provide it


    Now i wanna clarify that maybe for some/many people he must be a good seller but,for me it was only bad experiences/"luck" buying parts from him!
    so now i just avoid everything that he post on facebook.
