Doesn't anyone know the potential of it?
I guess from my HKS coffee can people automatically assume it's a sack of shit.
Everyone will always have their own opinions. The ones that actually matter are those that aren't based on stereotypes or god-complexes about their own cars. The fact that the people who tend to bash often call themselves "enthusiasts" it what is truly laughable.
Care to know how many times my car was ragged on here? I couldn't even tell you. Most of the ensuing debates, however, were put to bed with the original critic having a better grasp of reality rather than a selfish, biased view.
91 Talon TSi AWD (lightly modded...lol)

Thanks a lot for the support guys. Nice to know some people aren't tunnel visioned.
Funny. My mom doesn't have that fart-can.
I am pretty new to the car scene, and have primarily latched onto german automobilia; I wish I knew more, but you know, I feel very outclassed by a lot of people here with regards to technical knowledge.
But my base is expanding rapidly.
Although I know next to nothing about your Nissan.
Whatever the case may be, you bought the car damnit, you probably have a good reason.
I'm sorry, but you're on a god damn BMW forum man. You're going to get ragged on anywhere you go other then a s13 forum man. It's the way it is, deal with it. Because people don't like your car doesn't mean they're not enthusiast's. Just means they don't like your car. Simple as that. I don't like your car at all, but I love tons of other cars other then BMWs. I do have respect for your car though because there are quite a few around town that are pretty damn quick, but on a personal opinion, I'm not a fan. I wouldn't go onto a Porsche, VW, or Audi forum and expect to have my car respected. It's just not going to happen at, but I'm not going to go post a thread about how no one respects my car. And those are all German forums. Geezz, what would happen if I went on to a Honda forum, I wouldn't wanna know.
I respect you and your car, and have enjoyed reading many of your posts but my point is I think you're being a baby. Want mad props for your car, go to a Nissan forum. Not to mention, I've only seen 2 pictures of your car in the entire 2 years I've been on here. Post pics or vids and maybe it'll help with the people respecting you more. To most, you look like a bragging/whining ricer.
PS: I didn't post this to start a flaming thread (even though I know it'll happen).
You lost me about being 200 miles away from it and the clutch comment. Again, sorry if I sounded like a complete dick, but it's just the way the internet car forums will always be. Is it right? I don't think so, but it's life. It's like being black and going to a KKK meeting and asking why they don't like you. Just doesn't make much sense.
that was a typo, it was supposed to be 2000 miles. 9 months in a given year i live in stl while my cars are in LA. And currently my 240 has a clutch about as useful as a bullet without a gun. meaning it dont run
Originally posted by Bubbagump@Jul 22 2005, 04:01 PM I liek the 240's drop in an SR20DET and tune it right you have a very fast car. if done right with a bit of taist there is no reason for any rwd car to ever be rice.
Not to digress, but i want an '89 r-32 gt-r with a sr20det twin turbo conversion. I actually had a 91 sentra se-r w/ the sr20det. But i blew the bottom end.
*non-BMW induced full body shiver*
Edit: Doing burnouts.

Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.
I respect your car man. I wanna buy one for work to thrash around in. They are cool little cars. I just want something to beat one that would be fun. I drive around 100 miles a day for work and it's killing my beast.
