    Drifter — This car was built with one purpose: Drifting So sorry I can't really review in views of practicallity; but it is an excellent car for competitive drifting. Parts are very scares though in this part of the world. Lots of power, excellent handeling. I have never drivin a standard one these.

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

    Pros: Excellent Platform for drifting

    Cons: Waking the neighbours

    If You Can Find One In Good Condition For A Good Price, Dont Pass It Up — I got this as my first "official" car. Right off the bat I was amazed by the handling of it. So nimble, it felt like a go cart. Its a blast to drive, and tuner friendly. It's a shame Nissan discontinued the S-Chassis

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

    Pros: Cheap, reliable, sports car

    Cons: High mileage, lack of power, rust prone, beat up

    Why The 240 Is Better. — Amazing car, easy to modify. Insane ammount of aftermarket parts. This car can drag, drift, autocross or anything else. Huge engine bay incase a 4 cyl isnt enough. Ka power is dissapointing (wasnt designed to be sold with it) but... they can be built, also; Sr20s bolt in, Rb26s work with motor mount mods, v8 mount kits found online. Most advanced suspension system of its time.

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

    Pros: Everything. Cant play taxi driver

    Cons: Small interior space. Leaky sunroof. Tall ppl wont fit. Cant play taxi driver.

    Love It! — as performance goes, its got most acceleration from about 15 to 95 mph.. it pulls hardest around 60. its a rear wheel drive care so it tries to get sideways often which is very fun sometimes lol.. its got carbon fiber inserts in the seats and the dash and around the steering wheel.. with also a carbon fiber shifter knob and blue autometer guages.. running on tenzo type m 18s with falken drift/street radials.. gets about 23 mpg with the turbo.. highest grade fluids go into this car.. 93 octane gasoline with a third bottle of octane boost in every tank.. royal purple engine and crankcase oil..

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

    Pros: very fun and super quick

    Cons: not many reasons

    240sx <3 — It was a nice car, and it wasn't as slow as the other cars I have owned. It was cute and sporty, and great for the price. I just wish it was more trustworthy when it came to needing work done.

    Pros: It was a 240sx.

    Cons: It was a 240sx. HAHA

    My Whip — Its a fun little drift car. I call it my third love, because I rebuilt it from the ground up. I don't really like the rims, but they are what was on the car when I bought it. Its loud, it slides, and its all mine! What more could I ask for?

    Pros: Drift car

    Cons: Still needs some tweaking.

    Tight Little Car — Overall, this car is really tight in its handling and acceleration. I have the stick and the clutch is really tight and it has a nice short throw. I really love this car and the only thing that could be better is the horsepower. It doesn't have much, but it makes up for it in handling. I picked it up for 2500 and it was a great deal.

    Pros: Style, handling, reliability

    Cons: insuficuent head design, giving it less horsepower

    Good Car Once The Swap For The Sr20det Motor Is Done — This car is so awesome it is ridiculous, the interior was styled perfectly and it has enough power to have fun in it. whether it is a daily driver or just a race or drift car it will meet your every need. Easy to modify for big horsepower gains.
