Nissan 200sx Rs13 Ca18det Review — Awesome car! A legend in drifting, cheap to maintain and drift ) it has great interior and exterior design. I'm tall, so I can fit in the interior of this small coupe, but I wish I had more offset from the steering wheel, but it can be fixed with a deep dish steering wheel ) No problems except the engine, is too old and breaks allot. But it can be fixed easily, and it has good power. The build quality is good, there is no rattles and other sounds and its more than 20 years old! but the most exiting is RWD - it's fun to drive, and it is very predictable when the tail goes happy )

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: RWD, and it loves to skid )

Cons: i don't have money to build it properly

Low Riding — The car had a nice feel to the clutch. Rode pretty smooth and had little to no malfunctions during driving. The way I built the car to be was nice, it didn't have any body kits, only engine based improvements. Had black interior and exterior. Overall, the gas mileage was great for a 1989 and the car was fun to drive

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good car to drive away.  Nice too

Cons: It was an "import" or "tuner" and I'm more a fan of Classic Muscle

An Old Fashion Sports Car Nice To Drive, Specially At Night, With The Headlights Up ;) — At his own time, they called him the Japanese Porsche... and yes, it's a really fast car! If you want to drive it smoothly, it's easy to do it... If you are in a rush, go up than 3000rpm and spread your wings, then you fly! Beautiful styling, very good comfort for a sports car, reliable and does not waste too much petrol. I made a medium consumption of 9 liter each 100km... nice...

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Smooth or Fast, you choose the way... Cool headlights!

Cons: Hummm... not much to say...

Dori Dori — One of the best cars in the world in my opinion. Thats why I have them 2. One is battle machine and other is daily. The blue on has SR20DET engine, the red one highly modified CA18DET. Also this model has a lot of performance parts.

Nissan 200sx — Want to use this car for drifting and mountain drive as well. Bought the car so cheap and in very good condition (better than AE86). Did few suspension and exhaust mods only to the car and sold it at more than I paid for, haha. Overall, a great RWD car to have fun with.

Pros: RWD, great handling

200 Sx — This car is a work in progress, about halfway complete. engine built, and all major bodywork done exept for paint. The build quality is a bit weak on these, especially when they are introduced to salty roads in winter. My car needed a lot of cutting and welding to get right, and this has been a tideous and expensive project to sort out. Needs more money thrown at it to get right.

Pros: Pure fun, cheap rwd turbo

Cons: rust, and a lot of small things  that can go wrong
