I'd have to drop the evo off before the demo derby... I got rear ended in the evo about 3 months ago, by my girlfriend, and yes it would be horrible in a crash derby. tiny hit that i barely felt and the car had to go on a frame machine. my friend wasn't too happy about the whole situation.

I won a Zeitronix Ethanol Analyzer but only had a display LED unit in the prize bag.... am trying to get ahold of event coordinator to see if it might be an oversight

EDIT: just got a hold of the right person, it was a mixup the prize from Zeitronix was supposed to be what I got. It's far from an ECA... but don't look a gift horse in teh mouth eh!

I would be interested in taking the LED display off your hands

Most likely 2gb GSX wheels. Thats what they have been giving away the past couple of years.

At this rate, there's going to be a lot of galants rolling on these wheels. They do look "SWEET" on our cars though.

There were quite a few 2gs there with suspiciously new looking sets of these wheels.

There was a lot of 1 and 2 g's w these wheels. Mine will probably be going up on craigs list some time soon. I'm keeping my car a 4 lug car.
