Re: daily driver... new   Posted Mon Sep 16, 02   1:38 AM    [re: MrPeabody] 

well i'd go for the WRX, we have alot in australia, and u can get them for about $15,000 (USD), u c them everywhere good car, they don't go tho alot of petrol, they r pretty fast, turbo, AWD, most of them r man i think the engine in them things will drag alot of cars off if u know what your doing with them, coz u don't need much for them to get going to 10's, i don't really know alot about them but i know that the engines r very good in them and most likly something that your looking for, it's not to small not to big i think it's a good size for a car
so if your looking for a good everyday sort of car thats a good size and will give u some power i'd go for the WRX
i was just sort of looking at a few at this car dealers i knowcoz they mainly sale, R33's, R34's, R32's, supra's, IS200's, 300ZX's WRX's, FTO's, mustangs and GTO's most likly a few i forgot but cars like that i just went there to look for a car i liked the look of a WRX and a supra that was there and maybe a IS200 or there was a nice R33 GT-R but it was sold,so i maybe be getting a Supra, IS200 or a WRX im not to sure, but if i were u i'd be getting a WRX

The problem is we don't get all those nice and shmazzy cars over here like you do, especially the skyline... pardon me while I drool:P We get stuck with peice of shiznit downgraded weak ass cars, ( it's all the democrats' fault:P )Yes the WRX is very nice though, goes for 25 thousand in the US.

Eclipses are all right, heavy sons of biaches but still cool. The GSX is the model you want. It has a turbo 4 cyl that puts out around 220 HP stock. It's also all wheel drive. Not much money will put you into 12's easy.

yeah well i don't know much about them so, maybe if they r heavy get light panels, which will put the heavyness down a little bit, put a supercharger, in one, twin turbo, 4 inch exhaust, change the diff over for a better one maybe coz i don't know much about the eclipse's, that'll will give it more power, then do some major replacing in the engine and stuff like that that will get it faster to, but im not going to waste my time just saying all this for the fun of it, i could go on for a while but im not going to, but that will help someone out if they got one but i can't think of anyone in here thats got one, so enough time wasting done now.

GSX and WRX simillar with turbo and AWD. Subaru looks nicer in my opinion

Hands down it's all about the WRX. It's faster too, 14.1 1/4 mile stock, and you could take it straight of the lot and rally race in the SCCA...

umm no u can't u need to put in a roll cage 600$ for timing computers and no offense but i highly doubt the stock suspension would handle the bumps and conditions that well

im still thinking about what im going to get tho, i liked my MR2 but to bad for it, i don't want to get anouther one u need to spend alot of $$ on them to get them to go real fast, plus i don't want a car that i've had before, and i've had alot of cars, so i don't know what to go for, im thinking going for the IS200 to c how they go when i put my stuff into it.

and hooyeah your right about that u need higher for rallying

Re: daily driver... new   Posted Wed Sep 25, 02   3:56 PM    [re: Stryker] 

the real question should be, what do you put in it after that?

the answer: gasoline. lots of it. keep it a four banger, or a six if that's what it's got already. if you want it to go fast, i'd say to go with forced induction. chevy makes a blower for the four banger. i'm sure you could get a paxton or a vortech for the 4.3l.

my new daily driver is being driven! '91 geo prizm, gets new shoes and an alignment tomorrow. i've driven it 56 miles and haven't seen the gas needle move off a quarter tank yet! the new shoes and alignment cost less than 1 month of insurance for my dodge and elco.
