well. its been 12years.
Its time to start a new build thead.

I parted out everything on the 240sx (~2010-11)but kept the car sitting here since then. Past 6 months i been ordering tons of parts. It should be done by summer 2021!
bigger and better things!

Glad to see more people building S-chassis for other things than drifting. Count me subscribed. I'm up to 400 on pump gas, aiming for mid 400s to 500 on E85 for NASA/SCCA/HPDE stuff. killed the stock trans last weekend (I guess it didn't like passing cars in 5th gear @ WOT... :mrgreen: ) Z32 trans coming next week.

What are your plans for brakes? suspense(ion) is killing me. :cool:

Im glad to see more Grip S Chassis too! Just about convinced all of my friends to get a fast lap time instead of slam their car into a wall. Ka-T is “in” right now so maybe well see more traffic on the forum.

We all preach to do it once and do it right the first time....but we all say that now because we made the same mistakes in the past.
Only time I don't spend money on quality parts now is because I can afford to play with cheaper stuff just to see if it's any good....but it comes at the cost of more downtime and less time enjoying your car.
