    These cars have...complications.

    There is a laundy list of things to look out for.

    try that.

      See the Mitsu Starion is a cool car to drive with but project wise, there hasnt been any action to justify this car. All I here about the Starions is jus drag racing & keeping it nice. There is really any aftermarket parts for this car unless u did a custom jobs to it but overall, IMO the car is sweet but its a dud in the long run, good luck!

        a dud in the long run

        they're cool, they're fast, they can be made much much faster.

        I'm not seeing the dud part...

            The "dud" part is theyre known to have reliability problems. They seem to end up in the shops a lot for this or that.

            Theyre pretty cool cars i must admit my friendh as oen (thinks its the best car on 4 wheels). But they do have their draw backs.

            Stock they make around 170 hp at aroudn 5000 rpms and like 220 poudns of torque at 2500 rpms on a turbocharged 2.6 liter engine. They also weigh in at aroudn 2800-2900 pounds.

            After market support in the suspension department isnt exactly the greatest either.

            Great cars when they run.. but theyre a bit heavy for what they are, and dont have a lot of after-market support.

              You got PM.

              SidewaysGTS...i didn't say it was easy, but they are cool, potentially fast, and an unusual car. I wouldn't regard it as a dud. A dud has no potential, this car has it in spades.

              I'd rock it.
