:D Hey all. I'm new here. My name is Sean. I have been itno drifting for a while now. I am thinking about getting a 1998 240sx.
I have drifted before, but I'm not the best. I love drifting though. What car would you recommend to get? I have about 6k, my dad is going to buy me my car and said he would buy a 240. If i got one, what would some cheap, but good quality hop-up parts be? I'm sorry for all the questions, I'm just so curious !:p

Why get a 98? Leave money to spend.

240's are the general drifting car. Most of the time you see s13's though. So your saying there going to buy you a car, and you have 6 grand?

um any rwd cars most popular are the 240sx s13-s14,rx-7 fc, 85+ corolla go with something you can get cheap in good condition and save the money to fix it up those cars run around 500-3000 if you look you can find some pretty good cheap ones.

Yea, see I'm not buying the car. My dad is, i just have 6k for buying mods. I just don't know what kind of mods i should get?! I only know allot about Hondas, not Nissans :( . So what are some good companies for suspension and stuff, because i might be getting my 240 within the week...:cool:

Try to get some stuff from Tokico (shocks). For engine stuff, it's best to go to nismo, but that stuff is expensive, so you might wanna try nismo.
