    Why did they get rid of the kona blue with the tsunami in Japan?
    Either way I like both kona and deep impact blue..

    No Im pretty sure its gone forever, This makes the 2012 Boss in Kona the rarest color, You will be hearing about that in 50 years at auto auctions.

    R.I.P kona blue.

    That Boss will be worth a lot of money if kept in a garage and properly maintained.

    Yea but its the 2011 2.5i, 0-60 in over 10 seconds in real world conditions. The only reason why I like it is I can throw my bike in the back

    I still love your stang though, even if it is a v6...

    You should change the chin spoiler though, its way to small for the mean look the rest of the car is putting forth.

    I think towards the beginning of the thread he told us that he has just saved every single penny for a long time.

    Not Coil Overs but just shocks and Springs that will lower the car, Sway bars are dead on(in the big Boxes in the back, and I hall ready have the Brace but it does very little for the suspension of the car. It does look pretty tho haha.

    I save alot and I have had a job ever since I was 14, and it was a real job, not one where I work for my parents. Also I find alot of good deals.
    All in all I have only around $2k into the car including everything I just bought.

    I don't look in the Traxxas Alley often enough. So I miss great threads like this. Man, what a story.
    Great to see the dedication young people still can have to establish a goal.

    Of course getting such a powerful car is not something you see older people get enthusiastic about, but I must say reading this thread put a big smile on this old fart's face. It makes me remember the days when I got my license and bought a brand new car (Ford Escort XR3 with a stunning 96hp ) where many of my friends got a used one. I can still remember the excitement of ordering it and the day I could finally pick it up.

    I hope you have tons of fun and luck with your car and I deeply respect the way you got it!

    He's a kid that did his job saved his money, he can get what he wants, I'm sure if a kid is responsible enough to save 13k! and he's not even 18 yet I'm sure he could learn to be responsible on the road, more power to you man do what you want to do with your money don't let anybody hate on you and if anybody should suggest different on your choice it should only be your parents, nice car by the way even though I'm more into older hondas haha

    Nothing wrong with imports, I love stuff like WRX's, FRS's, BMW's, but don't get me wrong, I am in love with mustangs. There is just something about going through a set a tires in 30 seconds that make fall in love with american muscle. Urg I just want to get my license so I can spend my rc budget on rear tires...

    Imports are fine a dandy. But that growling shuddering American power is the best.

    I wouldn't say its the best, but it is guaranteed that american muscle will have a giant smile on your face during every commute. Comparing the two is like comparing apples to humans. Both have their benefits and both are amazing, it is just up to the consumer to decide which is better. My first car will most likely be an import though due to parents that want their son to have something fuel efficient

    True true, guess I should have said I prefer American muscle when given the choice. Yeah I agree, the new Nissan GTR is an incredible vehicle, although many say it is a cpu on wheels. YOLOer, good choice with the modifications, I have seen many kids in my year who get cars like yours and trash them. Not even changing the oil You're doing good man.
