That's fine man, I can find an S52 crankshaft all day.


Would you take $250 for that stuff? I'm hoping the piston rings are good, right? I don't mind driving out to your place.


And what are you building man? Or is that a secret?

I didn't think an S52 crankshaft would work, I thought you needed the one from an M54.

Same thing~ish. S52s I'd thought were still more aggressively angled no?

Found that a few days ago, emailed it to Amber, her bf is supposed to check it out. BTW, they had a picture of it once (don't know where it went). It's a vert X brace.

Says in the add he might trade for M3 wheels, I asked him if we can work something out for my DSIIs. I'm getting pretty tired of 4X4 status and I've been trying to unload those wheels for a while so hopefully it'll work out.

Yeah, that would work out nicely. Don't forget about shipping though... Wheels are a pain.

Yeah, that would be the problem. I've been looking on the internets and it seams that if I can find a couple box that are 18X18X18 I can ship two wheels in each box for $26 per box, so it might not be all that bad.

Yeah, $50 for shipping would be great for a set of wheels.

Yeah, it definitely seams low, but I figured I'd estimate generously with the weight (25lbs per wheel) and that's what the USPS shipping calculator spat out so for now I'm taking them at their word.
