Okay, this may seem to be a stupid question, but...
I'll start with the basic background, I'm a SCCA member, and currently in Solo 2. Me and my wife just bought a new 2001 Tib, we both love it, but the wife doesn't want me to "destroy" {<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>} the new car in racing. Fine, so I will get my own! <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>
Now the question, does the specs of the older Tibs (96-99) match those of the newer ones (2000-2001) ? What I mean, is the suspension, Engine, and more importantly, the Tranny (man I REALLY like the 2001 tranny, 5 speed that is) the same? If it is, I'll just buy me an older one and tweak it out. If not, back to the car lot! <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
PLz, someone with any clue to the specs of these year models, let me know... Thanks... <img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>

They're the same <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>. Just make sure you don't get one of the 1.8L Tibs.

Kool, thx for the quick reply, but what about the weight of the car and the suspension? <img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle>

The weight <i>might</i> be a little different, but the suspension is the same. Pretty much the only difference between the two cars is cosmetic (interior, exterior).
