    Hello from Texas

    Hi everyone, I'm Wes, and I live in San Antonio.

    I found the aerial chat forum looking for more information in buying an Atom and adding it to my garage.

    I have a couple of Italian cars and I have lusted after an Atom for a few years now, but never could find the one I wanted.

    Hopefully I can fix that problem soon.

    Look forward to chatting with everyone.

    Wes

    Hey man, how ya doing? I appreciate the offer, I've been jones'n for an Atom for sometime, even looked at that one you bought. If you see any deals let me know. I really am stuck on the Honda motor car, all black, no wings and lots of carbon.

    I also like the removable rollbar too as I think it looks classic and cleaner. Just want it for the street and to cruise around with on nice cool days. So basically in SA, that's 2 months a year.

    Hope all is well. When you coming to SA?

    I kinda want something like this one below.

    I went back and forth on the ecotec vs honda platform and I think there are pros and cons to each. I like the torque of the ecotec and with the Harrop setup it seems to be a good overall setup. I like the honda for the obvious reliablity and the 6 sp trans is likely a step up. I don't think you can go wrong with either setup. I hardly ever make it to SA but would love to get together.

    Happy motoring,
    ben
    btw, the ass of the 40 looks great!

    Ben, my eco has a six speed and I like it for the gearing, the torque of the eco does not make it a necessity though. The eco is rock solid also. I hated first gear in the eco and I hated finding fifth. The Quaife gear kit give much better lower gear selection and the mechanic that did the conversion added a detent so that fifth and sixth are no issue at the track.

    So, ... we now have two 40's on the forum?

    Cool, I like those wheels he has. Mine is a '91 as well, fun car to drive. Sure would like to have an Atom in the garage as well. I'm not greedy, an old one would make me happen.

    My new Atom found home last Friday.

    Should be fun. Thanks to everyone's help on the board.

    Mark at TMI was awesome, I would buy from them anytime.
