Default 240's

alright im sure ill be argued with here but, the one car im sick of is a 240 the people who own them think there godly like and then when they put there sr20det in there unstoppable atleast where i live. for example my friends brother owns an evo with around 300 whp and this guy did the little engine swap like they all do for around 205 hp and aparently he thought he could beat them. lets just say after first gear it was more then over. All the guys in the 240 grooup around here cut the ******* springs and wh they do that I dont know but after they do the car is just plain as wrecked, it squeaks you ake it over a pothole and your back end falls off. anyways thats why I hate 240s now but before i actually liked them.

agree or disagree?

I personaly love a 240...but there is always someone around to ruin a good car. And cutting springs is one of the worste things you can ever do to a street car.

They're decent cars, they have engines similar in design to the b6/bp. A buddy is making about 280whp on his cheap-o diy kit. Idiots drive everything. Including apparently, miatas.

it's a lightweight rwd sporty car, there's not too many to pick from. I'd pick one up for the right price, no sr20det swap for me though, it would be a built ka24de-turbocharged of course. And it wouldn't be setup for drifting either

i like the ka24e so all those people who swap in puny sr20's and give up all of that torque and driveability. for a highstrung peak hp motor. i would still never trade my hardbody for a 240 i am just abit wider and the front end weight bias makes loading the rear in corners wich helps tration alot plus the selection of wide wheels and tires of a sticky low pro are cheaper to buy and fine heck not to mention you can't even run more than a 245-50 on a 240 whereas i have plenty of room on my 265-60's esp the rear.

I have been in the the whole 240 and drifting sceen way way before it was popular so of course I have a deep love for them. And as we all know, the 240 is now the civic, which sucks, but when you do see a whole bunch of 240's you'll know who the ricers are and who the ones that are for real because you wont see and red top with 16 valve on it. Youll see a inline 6 bitches.
