    New weird daily

    Well as most of you know I bought a new daily. It's a 1996 Suzuki Alto Works rs/z
    AWD 3cyl turbo nugget from Japan.
    Plans to install the upgraded Garrett gt12 I have and see if I can't get 120hp out of it.

    So... when you hit a pothole... what happens? Does it get back out or do you have to call a tow truck?

    He imported it overnight from Japan. Doesn't get much more JDM then that, haha. Awesome little car, doubt we'll ever see another one in person.

    Does it give you whip lash? I feel like the turbo is way too big
