24 hour lemons carbon fiber madness

For Audi fans, Treser was THE modifier in the 1980's and 1990's. The firm created a very quick (and sought after) Audi 5000 Turbo (Audi 200 in Europe), a Quattro convertible (capital Q), and many others. I happened to stumble upon one of Treser's last creations, a slightly used Audi 200 Turbo quattro. While the engine, interior, and body panels were rotted, the carbon fiber hood and trunk-lid were not. Mr. Mehta and Mr. Lieberman, you can no longer call my Audi V8 quattro "fat." Like me, we are both turning into lean, mean muscled machines that will obliterate all Lincolns/Volvos in our path. Quattro uber alles!

    Also — I think we can both agree that Cap’n Mike’s fussy German money-pit won’t last two hours. Naaaah, I give it six. That's okay...I'll gladly turn wrenches on his Bauhaus Burner if needed. Its just the right thing to do for those who relish the joys of Farfegnugen!

    Samir: FWD only matters in so much as most cars get hit in the front wheels. Often. So, on that track, the easy to maneuver FWD cars are the fastest, but they are also the first to die. Like, you can't just swap out the front end.

    isn't there a spending limit on each car? something along the lines of $500?

    @Dr Brian Yep, $500 limit, which makes FREE Carbon Fiber even more cooler, even if it will crack...
