    Wow, its been a while since ive been on here and it looks like the local DSM scene is picking up pretty good. My jeeps been taking up most of my time. Looks like I need to scrape together a couple hundred bucks and get my car up and running. If everybody gets together Ill have to come out on my bike. Not that often you get a chance to see a group of DSM's.

    Ok boys... I'm selling out! I don't have the time to finish this damn car... LOL! not really interested in parting it out. Will sell the car, and all the parts I have for $2500. Firm! For those who don't know, it's a 1993 Talon TSi AWD, automatic. I have a brand new engine on the stand for it. 1g rods/2g pistons. have the 14g as well as a 16g both need rebuilt, Factory cast exhaust manifold with port for external wastegate, REAL Tial 35mm old style wastegate, also have factory exhaust mani for running internal gate. have spare head with no cams, original crank that needs polishing, spare 6bolt block, I actually can't remember everything i have. the car itself needs the rear hatch glass replaced. A small tree branch fell through it during a storm a while back. I have no doubt the car will be fun to drive, but I have lost interest and time... And I wanna buy another bike... so, there u have it. there are pics on here of the car. I can text or email pics if you want. 864-556-4584

    Yeah, I haven't completely convinced myself to sell yet. I already have my bike. I worked 48 hours of overtime on the last check and just went and bought one. Didn't get another rocket though. Got a cruiser this time. Soooo much easier on my back and I can walk when I get home after an all day ride. LOL! If you wanna ride one day, lemme know. We can get together sometime.

    I had to step away from my car a few times and take a break or else I would have sold it.

    I decided to take the car down a month ago and throw my stash of parts on it. 20g, 1050's, afpr and a used 2600 a friend back in Orlando gave me. Put the clutch in and it wouldn't disengage. I put a new master and slave in and my pedal assembly parts will be in tomorrow. The master was a bit leaky and the pedal had some slop in it so hopefully that's it. Otherwise I'll be pulling the tranny again.:ohdamn:

    What's up guys. I do have a Dsm, at least a part Dsm. I've been in the sc area (columbia) for about 6 years, I also live in nc. My car is undergoing some surgery. Feel free to take a look at my build journal. That project has been on going for about 6 months.

    2nd gear had a grind when i got the car, but now it will go into gear and still grinds, but when i let the clutch out it pops right back out of gear even when i try and hold it in.

    NEW PROBLEM- im getting a clunking noise from my front suspension when im driving. then as i pick up speed it turns to a thudding sound. when i hit the break it pulls to the right and i have no damn clue what the pproblem is on this...my neighbor said that when i drove by he heard it too and thought it was coming from my CV axles or boots, the boots are fine and not busted anywhere. apparently the previous owner replaced the balljoints,tie rods and CV axles/boots so idk what else it could be or if he did it wrong. could it be the sway bar??
