As much as you would like to sound objective you really don't. You are only listing good results for your car and cliches for our platform of choice. So yea, it does seem like you came on here "pro-dsm" and "240s are
cool don't get me wrong but all they are good for is drift".

Let me take a stab at it in two forms.

The objective side:
Body styles for the late 90s Eclipse were some of the coolest designs for cars in that era. With factry turbocharged engines and rally background these were great platforms for a person to take the car to the next level. 2+2 design made it easier on the younger crowd insurance wise but still had the start of a fun car to mod or keep factory.

The 240sx was also a great platform seeing as how they had a RWD setup with a torquey motor for a nice entry into the sports coupe market. Suspension design that was years ahead of it's time and standard disc brakes were also a great starting point for any car enthusiest.

So question is, why did you pick your platform be it either model?

Now your style, but from a 240 owner's point of view.

The 240sx is the best all aroun platform. It's RWD because we all know FWD sucks and wth the option to put almost any motor in it can do drag, drift, or any kind of grip racing all depending on how you set it up.

For eclipses, why would I wanna waste my time with something that's gonna walk it's crank more than I walk my dog? Plus it's FWD. And who cares about the rare AWD model that's just gonna eat transfer cases on time with every other crank replacement?

See how the tables turn? It's not very nice. I think maybe 3 people on here have a DSM but like the poster above said, we don't realy care to hear so much "Pro-DSM" talk seeing as how we are a 240sx site. If you want to ask questions about why we like our cars so much or get background on why we chose this car and have people post their reasons and experiences that's cool. But don't bash our cars intentionally or passive aggressively. It isn't well accepted as you can tell.

rally background? now if you said the EAGLE teams OWNED scca touring car stuff, you'd be accurate.

those cars did nothing significant in motor sports without chrysler's dollar behind it, despite what im sure wikipedia told you.

as to the 240sx's suspension being years ahead of its time, i hope you are joking, a strut in the front and a crappy multilink in rear....i guess thats revolutionary when double wishbone that owns it has been on everything else since the 80's.

however, dsm....eww. i think calling any dsm streetable is a joke.

thats weird because BMWs have been using macpherson fuck struts forever and they seem to handle pretty planted. Multilink on the other hand was done more for cost effectiveness on Nissan's part. Side effect was pretty decent rear adjustability and good handling. 240 chassis' are the real joke.

well, i've never personally seen a honda 5.0 240sx before.. if your talking about beatings 5.0 mustangs, 240sx's, and hondas, i would hope so, being a turbocharged eagle, vs a stock honda/240 shouldnt be any competition.. now take your fixed up eagle, versus a fixed up RB'd 240, or a fixed up Turbo RSX, and im sure your dsm will have to really try to keep up.

ive been partial to the 240 for its fun handling, ease of parts, very cheap starting price tag, unlimited swappability of motors. availibility of swappable parts is huge.

If you get a 240 with a ka in it its going to have stuped shit break all of the time if you get a 240 with an ls1 in it it will be super fucking badass same goes for a 1j or a 2j swap oh and you can make a 240 look hella sick. If you get a dsm everyone will think your rice and it is one of the few frw cars that the back likes to swing out on so you think your going to go around the corner then the back end slides out and you end up hitting shit then your rice car looks even more like ass

I'm pretty sure I'd rather have a stock KA for reliability over an LS1. The LS1 makes great power, no one will argue against that, but they are hardly reliable in the applications they come in from the factory, much less when you throw one in something it definitely wasn't designed to be in. Shit goes wrong on the LS1 as often or more often than a KA. And granted, it can be argued either way case by case, but as a general rule there's no reliability benefit of an LS1 versus the factory KA.

As for DSM in general, the only one I'd be caught owning and driving is an evo. I've never owned one and don't plan too. The only other DSM I care to look at is the 1g, and it's probably the only one I could possibly be convinced to own, and that would probably only be a GSX/TSi AWD.

idk KA-t normally equals rod knock and SRs are pretty neat it just cost a shit load to make 300hp mainly because you need the 2k motor plus expensive ass cams valves and tuning for the boost your going to run which wouldnt be a bad idea but I like SRs.I love v8s and ls1 300-350 stock and shit loads of torque although it would cost more than a SR lol but sometimes you can find them you just have to search like crazy

Why does it always have to be about who has the most power, or which motor will be the easiest to make x amount of power? What the 240 is all about is balance. The car should be built to maximize the overall performance of the car in all areas, rather than just focusing on one. If you want to make more power, do some suspension work, and possibly some drivetrain work to, not just handle the power, but compliment it. The way a car should be built is not just the way that someone decided was the best way to build it, it's the way the car feels to you. When you drive a car hard, you really get to understand it's little quirks and potential trouble spots very well, and when those things come to light then you should be quick to address those issues to keep them from flaring up. When you are addressing those issues is the best time to upgrade and modify. Know what you want the result to be and then go about finding the best way to achieve that result. If you decide that the car is leaning too much when thrown into a hard corner and that's what you want to address, then you can go several different ways to improve that. Start with new shocks/struts, along with a good set of springs to help level out the amount of roll from simply having worn shocks/struts, then on to sway bars, anti-roll bars, etc. and so on.

Honestly, who really cares about how much monster power you can get out of an engine for a 240? They weren't made as drag cars. Though they can be used for drag, and I've seen a couple sick ones, they are built for balance. That is my opinion on that.

To stay on topic, DSM was built for..... well.... they shouldn't have been built at all.

only here in america we care so much about power....

4g63 is a bulletproof motor to me though, engineered to perfection. BUT the DSM/Mistu drivetrain is CRAP.

240's Drivetrain is awesome. I love the KA 2.4 Iron and when boosted its a torque monster, very responsive.

these cars are TWO totally different platforms, hard to compare i love both, i own both. if you wanted to compare maybe something like 240 Vs. AE86 or DSM vs Subaru or something in the same platform. this comparison cannot be made, its purely preference.

I've owned a 96 gst and a 99 gsx and a 03 evo....this is my first Nissan...Sr'd s14.... I am a Honda man personaly these last cars were just to play with and gain some experience but I have to say the Sr is a whole lot easier to work on and take to mods better

honestly the sr can easily take the abuse you throw at it and more ..... alot of people will tell you the sr is alot like the 4g63 do the 3 main mods and you get a quick car with over 300+ easily tune injectors and turbo ...... 360 should know what I mean 20g on a 4g63 with good injectors and a tune easily can get over 350 ...... sr is the same way evileight has 350 with the same thing tune injectors and turbo ....... but 360 is also right that the closest comparison between the cars is the sr and 4g63 after that they are nothing alike and the only reason the motors are somewhat similiar to compare is the 2.0t factor
