I did it.

No real reason to pay 150 or whatever dollars, for $10 worth of pipe. Same shit.

If you have the means and knowledge, yes, I would; I've seen some nice ones.

I saw one that looked the an M4 middy (which is the route I went)...

Save $$ for track time??? Or tires

Pretty sure you'll have to invest in some type of fuel management, though.
