Post SRT4 sell or keep ?

Is it worth keeping my SRT-4 or should i just get rid of it.

-The throttle is messed up and doesnt let me go past 2 1/2 RPM before i have to shift.
-3rd gear always scrapes i heard because of the pin.
-I even bought new gear box and new clutch everything still scrapes.

Do you think it's worth the money to keep it and fix it or will it happen again?

So i should keep it. I might just fix it and then sell it. But it gets so annoying.

Sell it and go with a real performance car, one with RWD.

Camaro Z28/SS, Firebird Formula, Trans Am, GTO, G8 GT, Mustang GT, take your pick. I'm partial to GM, obviously, but its all up to your price range and taste.

Or Thunderbird is also a good option.

Especially if you are a Honda guy, because the SLA suspension on the Thunderbird is actually very similar to what was used in pre-'01 Hondas. It has the most advanced suspension design of all of those mentioned with the exception of the G8 GT which I am unsure about. Whats your budget?

You can get a really nice car, really cheap:
