What is a good street racing car?
i have seen all the fast and furious movies and fell inlove with them. i have especially taken a liking to the tokyo drift. after leaning about drifting and testing it out in my, not so fun, 95 geo tracker, i fell inlove with the sport. only drawback is, it only drifts when its wet, snow, and it tends to tip. warning label on the visor warns of tipping, so i tend only to drift in the snow. but the car is falling apart and i want to find a new car. so far ive been fairly picky, wanting only RWD cars, but no so much anymore. i have considerd any good tuner and am broadinging my horisons. my car wont last long so help me out fast. i need to find someone with good knowladge of the tuning sport and need suggestions on what kind of car is good for tuning, and what mods and engine parts i should apply to it.
ive been looking for a:
- 97 nissan 240sx,
- a 99-02 mustang,(can u get a turbo for one of these??? if so where?)
- an earlier model mitsubishi ecplise,
- a 94+ toyota supra,
- a mazda rx-7, (love the vilside fortune rx-7 widebody kit shown in tokyo drift)
-and even been looking for a nice kit car such as lambo and ferrari for cheap.
i have a min. wage job and about 3k right now. but i plan on buying a car hopefully soon, like around 5-6k dollars in hand. any suggestions from tuning experts or guys who just know thier cars?
also, is it better to get manual? i want the thrill of manual and the conection with the car, but is it just the same as driving an automatic with things such as accelteration and top speed? in my opionion i always thought manual would be better and faster.
-resides in OH-
oh, ive also been looking at maybe getting a 2009 kawasaki ninja 250r
any thoughts on this? comments? tips?
