Nope, can be a is300, evo, or wrx. All depends on the body mods. I own a 1991 Nissan 240sx and my wife owns a 2004 Subaru WRX. there is no rps13 in this game so the Levin (Futo) comes in. As for the wife's car, rally wing and hood scoop coupled with the awd makes the sultan the best choice for a wrx remake. Works for me. I know Karin is Toyota, but I never much liked the is300. So, it's a subie remake in my book. Like I said though, it's all in the body mods.

 

Hood scoop...

It's "my" wrx...

But like most cars in this game, it has a split personality. It is a hybrid from three cars I can tell of the bat. It's whatever you want it to be. Lancer, IS300, or a Impreza. It's all up to you.

A subbie is more compact and the sultan is more boxy with IS300 lights, only thing that make it a subbie are the mods and the AWD. to me.

You sound like a 240sx expert, I have a question.

 

How much work is it to put an RB25DET in the car and could it be used as a daily driver?

 

and damn, your girl drives a WRX? i can see a base model.

What's the big deal about this vehicle?

 

Every time I steal one just to get somewhere I think "Oh god, not this poxy piece of crap again which has trouble turning corners without spinning out"

you answered your own question. some of us love learning to tame and enjoy the spinning. this car is for fun ONLY, in a mission or a cop chase, or trying to loose same assclown shooting at you for no reason it is a VERY bad choice. not sure why but i loved this car since the first time i drove it in gta4.

It's the in-game version of a popular tuner car from back in the day, a Toyota I believe.

 

This vehicle has the shortest turning circlein the game and bad handling which makes it powerslide when turning much more frequently than any other vehicle, I don't believe it's true drifting but these 'drifters' love this car.

Not an expert in any way. Just a life long mechanic and car enthusiast.

 

A lot, too much for a daily driver. Unless your rich or know the right people. Sponsors help but you gotta go full time with your car to make it worth it. For a daily driver I would stick with a n/a ka24, ka-t (turbo ka24), ca18det (180sx), sr20de(t) (200sx). I kept mine all motor ka24de. Cast iron long block. I've owned a 300zx, crx, and a eclipse gsx (among other not so note worthy cars), and my 240sx is my baby. Best car I have ever owned. Not the fastest and not the most reliable but it has the most personality and is the most fun to drive (race and daily).

I'd love to do autox but there aren't any tracks near me. I'll take it to the drag strip every now and then. It's almost two hours from me and I didn't make it last year.

Yeah, it's getting that way around here. I live in Wichita, KS. We used to have them a lot but now it's once a year for riverfest. Got to go to Yoder or Salina. I need to just buckle down with some sponsors and get into more scca racing with my buddy.

Really!? You just made me really sad.

 

Nah, you just got to practice. A differential helps. I don't advise welding yours but I've heard of it being a cheap alternative. Don't use the hand brake, try working with clutch kicks and power overs. They are a little easier for beginners. Once you start feeling comfortable and faster try weight transfers or feints. Just practice and don't push to hard on the beginning. Make sure you don't go showing off, that's a good way to look like an ass in a ditch.

Not to add to the thread ...drift (ha!), but I actually find the Sultan to make for a decent substitute for the 7th-gen Honda Civic (sedan, obviously):

Heck, it's not that far off the 6th-gen version, either - it's the headlight shape that does it for me:

Like I said above, it all depends on the mods. Due to it being a cover all bases kind of car (hybrid, more than one vehicle inspired) it can be whatever you want. Saved Rockstar from having to make twenty reskined sedans. But it's not forza or grand Turismo, so we make due.

 

This is a Futo thread. Let's respect the op and keep it on topic. If you guys want to shoot the sh*t with me I'm on Xbox.

Otherwise let's make a new thread to discuss other cars and etc.

 

Sorry, I love talking cars and what not. I just hate when my threads get hijacked so I don't want to do the same here.

Heh - totally. In the spirit of avoiding further drift (...nope, not going to make the same pun again!), just found this - AE86 driver and legendary 'Drift King' Keiichi Tsuchiya, giving a tutorial on how to drift:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXUlLVTG640


Really digging that burgundy paint scheme - if I weren't so damned attached to my Initial D look, I'd be tempted to re-style it along those same lines (love the rims, too!)...

That clip is from the Drift Bible....

Look up "Drift Bible", download, study, and practice. Good stuff. I've always loved Best Motoring.

Yeah... after eating my crx's steering wheel, shattering the bridge of my nose and separating my septum I swore off of fwd. Got a z32 (1991 Nissan 300zx) loved the power but thought it was too heavy for autocross so I sold it and got my rps13 (1991 Nissan 240sx). Never looked back. Even after driving my wife's old z33 (2003 Nissan 350z) and her current 2004 Impreza, lightweight rwd is where I'm best and most comfortable.

 

Just to keep it on topic...

I love my Cobalt as, power is easy to make just hard to put it to the ground and torque steer is a real bitch sometimes. I almost bought an FRS but I love forced induction and their engines are weak from the factory.

Love the wheels on the right.remind me of varsstoens. I use them too much.

Scion FRS? The engine in that is a flat four from Subaru. Strong engine. As for forced induction, doesn't the lag piss you off? I hate driving my wife's WRX because of that. My 240 is all motor and will take on most anything I throw at it. I love beating up on her car and my buddy's m3. They always talk smack on me for not going turbo or swapping the engine. I cut a lot of weight out though. Upped the power a bit (not much, it is mainly an autocross car), dropped it about two inches, stiffened the Hell out of it.

Lag is noticeable but only maybe a second. After that, it's all torque LOL. I know a guy with an old built 240. It's a real sleeper and he's always hurting feelings with it.

 

Now, back to the Futo.

(how cool would that be to replicate in-game? A 16-Futo car meet, out in Paleto Bay or the like - that'd be Snapmatic-worthy...)
