That was my intent.
Not necessarily using the geo parts in the probe. (although...hmmm)
But to start out wiht something slipperry and then find the most efficient driveline to put in it.
If I had the body fab skills of Darin I would already have a teardropped Metro. (still working on that anyway)
But I can take a MX3 and put the 1.3 from an old Mazda Protege mated to a low gear MX6 (Probe?) tranny and make it work.
