Why You Chose This Platform I was able to pick up my first-gen DSM for $900 — it never ran right and then I blew the motor! I was so sick of having crappy cars that I decided I was going to build a second-gen, and I was going to do it right this time. Over the past eight months, I’ve done all of the cleaning up on the car myself.
Numbers 408 whp and 453 wtq.
Props/Thanks To My friend, Narvin.

Worst Mods I’ve made some pretty bad choices with modifying the car, such as adding a super loud exhaust (which is now gone) and taking out a lot of the emissions control pieces.
Why You Chose This Platform I purchased this car during high school using money I earned at a summer internship and wanted to use it for autocross, but got side-tracked into racing in local mountain roads.
Props/Thanks To I really want to thank all my friends who helped and taught me so much.

The G-Class has changed a lot since the 460-series debuted in 1979. Today, the G-wagon is now as much an S-Class as it is an off-roader

That's about what the Honda Civic Type R makes and nearly twice as much power as we got from the last Mini JCW GP back in 2012

Created exclusively for Japan, the model gets no powertrain upgrades but looks fantastic enough that we don’t really care.
