    Thanks for the info man. I saw the teamswift.net site and am really interested in buying a head for the car, but not quite yet. I'm starting school in a month so I have absolutley no money. The site was also under construction so I couldn.t find any of the tech info, but I'll be sure to check up on it so I can use all that info. Thanks again man.

    Nice ride man... I got a question to ask, and if you could help me out I'd be really grateful. I want to get bigger wheels, but my Metro came stock with 10mm axle studs for the wheels. When I went to the wheel shop, they told me that it wouldn't be safe to put larger upgraded wheels on my car because the studs were likely to snap, and that nobody made aftermarket tuner lug nuts for 10 mm studs. Did you replace your axle studs by drilling them out and putting larger 12 or 14mm studs on your car? Please help me out man, from one Metro owner trying to fix his car to another. Thanks.
