I'm glad you got respect, I get nothing but crap from all the subaru drivers in my area. It gets a bit annoying after a while.
With jsut stage II in my LPT i got lots of respect ( although coupled with confused headscratching as well)

Maybe once you start breaking into the high 12's(and he is at a high altitude as well) they will change their tune

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...

Sleepr56 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.

kalvinr11 Mmmm, sounded good.

But one quick question: Why is this in the NG/OG N/A forum?
06-02-2007 08:25 PM
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!

I guess cheap + RWD + light + cheap motor swap = pretty fun car

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.
