    pros and cons 240 or ae86

    i need a new drift project because i smashed up my last rolla.
    and i cant seem to decide between a new corolla or a 240.
    im torn between parts cost, limitations, how much working on it will kick my ass.
    either or will need a motor swap mr2 for rolla. R33 GT-S for the 240
    i dont know what complications i could run into with either or
    which is more bang for my buck


    I NEED HELP!!

    240sx:
    Pros: easier to drift, cheap parts, tons of parts,
    Cons: its a 240

    AE86:
    Pros: ?? not a 240
    Cons: gutless, girls wont want in it, harder to drift, not as many parts, more expensive parts, make your own parts

    maybe a new hobby if you dont like to work on cars

    99% of time spent drifting is actually repairing and working on your car...all for a few moments of bentness

    This is true of almost any motorsport if you want to be competitive. Each lap on the track is another hour of work in the shop (if you're lucky).

    Well it doesn't matter if you are scared to work on cars, the point is you dont. Go buy a s13 with cut springs.
