How many boxes did psi gti go through? 7? 7x$200=$1400. Now how long did it take for those 7 to break? That's what you gotta work out. Can you save up $3000 quicker than it would take to blow up $3000 worth of boxes? If you could then I'd buy the expensive box.

BTW I spent the better part of $10K on a gearbox, $3K is cheap for peace of mind IMO.

Tom was along younger and dumber when he owned PSIGTI so that helped out with the gearbox tally.

hmm......psi did burn through boxes...not as much as tyres though...if you get my drift..

i do agree with doing it once though, PSI had a standard box, a rally HD box, a suzitech box, and a few cino ones...

i think it came down to being 18 and stealing maccas trays from Lilydale..

i intend to get one of DMW daves GTi boxes with lsd...but really, with 7-10PSI and easy launches...and no flat footing it in 1st to 2nd...you'll be right...

but wats the fun in that Twisted Evil

i dont see the problem with obtaining one of dmwdaves boxes as they come in at around $1300ish, and for the amount of boost being run and with sensible (hahahaha)drivers should be sweet.
