i used to have an rx and there is nothing comparable about a FWD car to getting sideways
SO much fun.

I have spent most of my time behind fwd cars and they have their advantages, but also have many dis-advantages as we all know. I tell you the thought of being able to get a little side-ways every now and then sounds like fun. Drifting might be fun too and the availability of all the parts for these Jap cars is amazingly large and cheap compared to our cars.
I do like the individuality of a fast fwd Saab, but it sure makes me wonder if I should just build a cheap, light rwd car.
I tell you though, I did have the only Saab at Tuner Mayham and it won every race it was in and that got lots of attention and made me feel pretty good. Beat a 2007 911 and a very fast Volkswagen gti. Its fun to go fast in a car that nobody else has, but the vert is just not the best car for racing. Sure gets lots of attention though...

Last time I checked all the guys originally building fast honda's have upgraded to s2k's or subies.
The 240 scene is less underground then it was before due to the increase in the "drifting" popularity. But still see plenty of ricers with their stock ka24's thinking they are tokyo drift, hahaha
Still plenty of noobs no matter what the badge on your car says.

Mmmm, sounded good.
But one quick question: Why is this in the NG/OG N/A forum?

|a32guy||Uhg I HATE atmospheric dumped wastegates... Nice 240 and SPG tho.|
|05-28-2007 09:24 PM|
|Saaboy||yea w/e that 240 is crazy... seeing that c900 on the track gave me a real warm fuzzy feeling on the inside. I wanna see more!|

|900AERO||Looking Good, GM , Sounding good Too|

I think he just has the WG dumping to the atmosphere. My SPG uses the MUCH smaller cousin to the 3076 & I run 21 PSI being dumped to the atmosphere. Of coarse my acceleration is probably 1/2 of what the 240 is but this is what it sounds like from outside the car.
|05-28-2007 08:38 PM|
I'll have to agree. The 240 scene has grown tremendously in the last couple years. It could be compared to the honda scene, however I think the guys in the 240's are, for the most part, better educated (auto mechanics wise) and less about the "blang blang" and altezzas.
|05-28-2007 08:15 PM|
That makes good sense!
|05-28-2007 08:11 PM|
so many people around here are doing 240's, it seams like every kid who started out on a civic has no moved on to the 240.
I guess cheap + RWD + light + cheap motor swap = pretty fun car

|Redfoxx||holy crap though! look at that damn speedo!|
|05-28-2007 07:55 PM|
