    My sadly departed 200sx - Video!

    This was a track car / drift car I ran for about 1.5 years. Minimal costs / maximal fun...

    Not difficult to see why it's life was short [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Clicky......

    Served well for 1.5 years but the chassis rotted.. the rear x member needed a serious rebuild which was going to cost

    Shame, as the engine, box and most other parts were sound. No matter, paid 800, sold 350.... not bad!

    Another 200sx when I find a straight one... Too much bling pimped big turbo nonsense out there.

    The one I owned had a rebuilt bottom end and somebody took all the mods off - so bone stock (apart from cut down springs). The only time it caused problems was when the boost was turned up...

    there's the trick - straight. I guess when certain RWD cars get to that age the people who can now afford them tend to "sort" them in the most horrendous fashion.

    Where was it taken if you dont mind me asking? I've seen you flying round Knockhill in the car a few times [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
