A Miata sucks for drifting compared to many other cars because it has a low polar moment of inertia. That lower polar moment of inertia makes it better for racing, though.

you guys are forgetting he only wants to be "turning 50" so why would he buy suspension? plus suspension costs "1/3" of 240 build so that means he has $1200 to spend or $9,000 to spend on 240 build, depending on what suspension he/him talk about. we thank yours face for the very best questionising us we.

wow where the hell did all this completely off topic **** come from. is this all this forum does. 2 help and the other 500 jump in and thread jack about useless topics.

who said i want to drift. 240sx is a great car that has so much aftermarket support for it. its probably one of the most used project cars out today. with it having so many cars that you can pull parts off of and bolt onto it as if it were made for the 240 such as the j30 differential, or the z32 brakes. plus theres so much help online for it as well. think of the most random thing you can think of to do to a 240 and most likely its already been done so you can do it but not make the same mistakes. its an amazing car and i would pick it instead of a miata any day. the miata is just what happened to pop up when i needed a car.

also if the miata was a better platform to drift with why do you go to a drift even and 80% of the cars are 240sx. not just in the little events but also the bigger events. and like i said before i dont drift and dont care to watch it also.

Next time you want us to read about your "heavy flow day", use the shift key to capitalize the first letter or a sentence.

Has anyone ever installed a Honda S600 transverse front engine/RWD drivetrain into a 240?

typical noob ***-hattery
"Wah I dont want to do anything, why do you guys have such a problem spoon feeding me?"

You obviously have not actually looked around here/read any of the sticky's at all. And if you don't follow forum rules, what obligates us to help you?

and we do help, if you're not a total moron. Like all forums, we have rules and policies, which you didn't read. STFU

Different setups, huh. I prefer the 24" double-ended ****** myself. Any longer and it gets unwieldy

Why do these idiots ALWAYS assume that just because this is a car enthusiast forum means we can all spell and punctuate like braindead morons? Is car enthusiasm and proper communication skills too much to ask of someone at the same time? Are some people unable to walk and chew gum at the same time?
