LOL, cutting springs is so old. It's bad and just dangerous. Get yourself lowering springs.


Cut springs were the shiznit back in the day. We didn't have no lowering springs or coilovers. Only way to get down was to start revving the angle grinder.

no offence intended just that in your post u dont mention any thing about preformance mods u just go straight to looks so imo that screams RICER.

And the fact that u mention cutting your springs pretty much means you should never touch a 240 or any other car for that matter if u are gonna do half assed mods that not only endanger your life as well as others on the road.

not to vent on u but im just tired of seeing nice / decent cars fuked up because people are to lazy or cheap to buy the proper parts or do a proper job.


Lol. Sorry for my ignorance, I can only say what I want from what i've learned. And that was from random articals on drifting and the drifting bible. and the first mod it said you'd have to do is "Cut your springs" so I figured okay..ill cut the springs..sorry im not up to date on what we can do with springs now?...and i dont care what Screams ricer, if I like how it looks does it really matter? its not your car... anyways I wasnt going to get a huge spoiler or anything crazy...I just think if the 240sx has the right body kit somtimes it looks cooler..

honestly if u really wanna learn about good mods and such for your car talk with people who actully drift dont look for craptastic on line resources and dont listen to what 90% of the younger people say or do. Younger = under 25 or so. most of em talk shit and really dont know what there doin for the most part. they hear somthing from some one who has a cousin whos uncle whos best friend did it once and it worked great, They think.

If u do happen to get a 240 the nico 240sx forums is a great place to find good information on cheap but good mods what will give u preformance at a decent price and we actully have drifters who go to events all the time. they show / tell and do write ups on the mods they have to there car and how to do them properly.

Alright, well....Its almost time for me to buy a car...and well I'm kind of torn between a Subaru WRX, a Lancer EVO (if i can find one used for cheap enough) Or...a Nissan 240sx (s13)...So like I want the 240sx but I know it's going to have at least 80k miles on it...and I know it might have rust and will need some work. generally because its an old car....Also the fact it doesnt have too much room....Which could be a plus or minus when it comes to picking up people when you dont want to...

Orrrr I could get a Used WRX that has like 50k miles on it for like 10k...and not have to do as much work on it (maybe just a lil interior work to customize and a bodykit)...and I won't have to worry about anything happening to it because of its age...BUT...I wanted to pick up on drifting maybe...and i dont think i'll get the real experience from an AWD car...so yeah...which would should I pick...



bodykit..?
hope you keep it JDM

Its funny cuz other then the horrable body gap on those pannels and the not so great choice of color the pink car is the most decent lookin one.

z1000. thats cool
I have an older katana. my dad had the same bike when he was young and tempted me to buy it so I did.
I guess it makes him feel good seeing his son ride the same bike as him when he was young.
Like looking at his past or something.
