It has been nearly 9 years since I had the car in a drivable mode and I am amazed at how old I’ve gotten. The car is raw, grumpy and takes a lot of effort to drive – god it’s fun – but this isn’t something I would appreciate driving every day and I don’t think it’s something I could.
I know this feeling, I've recently come across it myself after getting mine back on the road. I've started to miss the interior and the open dump is just ridiculously loud. The seats hurt my ass and I feel like a tuna crammed into a can. It rides like a lumber truck with the stiff springs and adjustable shocks cranked high. The steering is heavy, it cuts in too fast with too much camber, everything rattles and shakes. It's crude, loud, rough, and any rational person would be appalled to have to ride in it for longer than a few minutes. After racking up 140 miles in a few days of test+tune, I fell back in love with it.
