If I was good with metal, it might have been built as nicely/well, but, then it would've "cost" a lot more of my own time and effort. It's really difficult to compare a DIY effort by someone who knows what they're doing to a kit...of course it won't seem like a deal to you!

Since you said there's "alot" [sic], what are all the other DIY benefits you can think of?

And why haven't you told us where to get brand-new ball-bearing T25s for $150? I'm seriously interested.

BTW, I wasn't trying to own you that bad...but, you need to man-up and admit you did get Pwn3d a little
lol I didn't mean a brand new T25, but one off an SR20 front clip with about 30-40k miles. For $150. Theres a shop here in southern california... they had about 20-30 T25s/T28's for sale. I bought a T25 for $150. I wouldn't say getting owned a little bit lol just a misunderstanding.
