I would say 240. Honestly i like them both, but considering you're wanting to start a new project, and you've already owned a Galent, and the whole RWD deal would be new to you. 240 all the way. Good looks are a huge plus as well!

Yeah, I would stick with RWD myself. Much more fun!

Yeah, I've always been a fan of the 240. My only reservation about it is the fact that it's like the popular car right now. Everyone's either got a 240 or a Honda. Still, you don't see many clean S13 Silvias around, which is what I would most likely want to do. Either that or a Kouki S14. The price of SR20 swaps has come down considerably, which is the main reason it appealed to me.

I would love to see a clean S13 with an SR20. I do not think the popularity of the 240sx or Honda will ever leave. They are kinda like the Chevy 350 of a tuner world haha! A proven brawler.

Agreed, there will probably be a slump when cheap donors are gone, but then they will come back and be expensive!

Very true. I just wish people who bought them would actually be good at tuning. It's not there aren't good builds out there... Its just that if i had a quarter for every riced out civic here, I would be rich. 

However, I have not noticed riced 240's. Again, it's not that i don't like V-R4. Beautiful cars all around. I just Think the 240 would be a better option for something newer.

I feel ya! Where i live we do have some nice and clean Honda's as well as some not so clean ones rollin around. We don't have much for the S chassis scene though. The few that do roll around seem to not have been taken care of over the years.

Hmm, we had our fair share of riced out 240s over here. Actually it is kind of rare to see one at all anymore around here. Usually now it is a well done one usually with a S15 conversion. I guess all the 16 year olds bought the RWD cars, wrapped them around poles and they are rotting away in a junk yard.

Talon: Yea, that's true. I have a feeling that they'll make a return of some kind, and get beautifully restored. But until then... We'll have to deal with the minimum.

drxl: yea, it truly is a shame. I think they need to understand that just because you own a RWD car, that does not make you a drifter by any means... that those things take practice. but oh well, i guess.

^^^^This! I guess I am just going to wait patiently for their return.
