    Try having same tank in a Cobra, seems even smaller. On reg basis, can knock it under 200kms to a tank...............fun though.

    really depends on how you drive it...if your foot to the floor all the time and launching from every light, it can go fast...but it's not so bad if you just drive around like an Old Fart

    So I took the front tires off to get them re-balanced due to a shimmy in the steering wheel. Come back and I friggin let one fall over in the gravel. And seeing that these wheels stick out about an inch over the tire I got a bunch of chips. Maybe it's my inner-self wanting to get rid of them, lol. I haven't researched yet, but does anyone know a good mat black paint (paint pen?) I could use? And further into this story, the wheels are still not balanced ok!

    Edit: found some online at canadian tire. (should have done this first!)

    The car is coming along nicely! It really is begging for a new set of 18” rims and tires.

    Something like these: https://lmr.com/item/WTK-880653DG/mu...phite-g2-94-04

    Or if you want to be a bit different, a set of these in gold: https://lmr.com/item/WTK-1007SHG2/mu...-gold-94-04-g2
