• AC probably doesn't work because compressor is "jack-shaft" driven from the timing chain, you know, the one on the firewall that requires engine removal to service…

    • As a father of a 16 year old who wants to get into crapcan-type motorsports, how feasible is this? My suspicion is that engine management in modern cars is so complex that “simplifying” a car like this isn’t so simple.

  • What's the German word for too f'ing complex? Might as well go balls to the wall and get any 12 cylinder MB.

    I love German cars, have owned many, still own one, and when they are good, they are very, very good, and when

    they are bad they are abysmally horrid. $3K too much.
