It's ok, we both trap the same as him with our teenie weenie little turbos, that's good enough for me

If my stock clutch goes out and I finally throw in the FM1, I'm gonna go again and launch full tilt in 2nd like a MAN

Someone needs to buy one of those Beatrush triangle PPF brace things for the NB and then loan it to me, so I can copy it.
