New (May) Sport Compact Car worth buying!

Heya everyone,
	Just picked up the May Sport Compact Car.  Very good issue.  Has
a wheel section with 155 hot aftermarket wheels from Kenesis to some I
haven't heard of.  Talks about the manufacturing processes too.
and tells about BBS, Kenesis, etc's manufacturing process. 
 Has info on all the new Super High Performance TIres like the G-Force kd
and the Potenza S0-2 etc... and it explains what many of the new
technologies are.
	 Also has a thing on Rallying in the USA that has some great pics
including a Red 323 jumping OVER a road.  Car is #22.  Is that our own
List Member Paul Timmerman.  I dont know what his new 323 looks like.
	 THey made their own WRX from a 2.5rs.  Part one of this was a
few months ago when they did the WRX suspension etc and this one has the
motor conversion.  Or at least adding the turbo, I havent' read it yet but
I think they kept the 2.5rs block.  They also have a test of the Skyline
GT-R (new one).  R34 I think it is. 
        And, in there somewhere is a picture of a 911 turbo popping a
wheelie with drag slicks :-)    This guy is pretty big on the Import Drag
scene and in one issue I saw a picture of him in the pits with the entire
motor on the ground being rebuilt on the spot!!!   Boy, I wish I could
pull my motor in 30 minutes like you can in a 911.  That would make major
maintanance a little easier. :-)  Anyhow, its a cool pic of a 911 in an
unusual position. ANd what a car for Dragracing.  I wonder about these
guys dragging FWD cars sometimes.  Seems counter Intuitive to me as weight
travels OFF the wheels.  Hmm.
	Anyhow, the magazine is pretty good and if you plan on buying anyt
16" - 18" wheels in the future I HIGHLY recommend buying it.
