My plans so far are to keep it civilised, not like my last few cars. Change the wheel. It doesnt come with those front wheels, so ill be buying 2 new sets. Probably go for a set the same as the fronts in those pictures in white, 16x8 i think. Also a set of deepdish rota minilite look wheels in 15x8 with a gold centre and chrome lip. Probably get a set of bandies too in 15". Ive no intention of going for the odd wheels look all the kids seem to be doing these days to 'look drift', even though i reckon it looks boss. Its not getting a bodykit or BGW either.


I HATE cars.

Nice choice mate, seem to be the in thing driving a 200sx. Also whats "in" is 18x9 wheels with the biggest stretch you can put on them.

Still very good and i'm sure you will be very happy with it

Yeah, ive noticed theres loads about recently. Ive been after one for ages, and i was looking before i got the escort, so i thought now is the best time to get one.

Im not into this big wheel stuff. Dont see the point. It looks good but whats wrong with 15's or 16's?

Yeah tony, it was up a while ago. A lads girlfriend bought it but cant get insured. He offered it to me first dibs when i put a post up and i literally tore his arm off.

Can give a proper replie now as i had popped home on lunch earlier.

Cars looks ace liking your idea with the wheel choice i find my car handles better on 17-16s my 18s are just for show raftl

Good build on the engine to when i bought mine i also considered this but got a good deal on mine.

Glad your not going bgw and kit as its abit of a sleeper (apart from the huge fmic lol)

If you need anybits give us a shout i may have em.

And get yourself booked on that drift day on march 5th matey think i have spare rims you can skid on aswell.

No big brakes on that list mate...

If you intend on driving fast at all,I would upgrade brakes first before you touch wheels.This may necessitate 16" or 17" wheels anyway...Standard brakes will let you down in a big way,compared to the acceleration a 280bhp 200sx gives...Nice car by the way!

Do you have an electronic boost controller then??

Cheers tone. Ill book the day after ive got the car and drove it to make sure im ok with it. Dont want to go booking stuff before ive even got the car. Are you going there? I might need someone to give me some pointers smile

Yeah chris, thats one thing i noticed and ive spoken to a few people about. As its intended for skidding it shouldnt be a massive problem but i do have intentions of using it on road too, maybe even track days. Its due rear discs soon, so i will get the best discs all round i can and some proper pads. Then ill start saving for some form of uprated brakes. I believe a lot of people use a Z32 setup and do a 5-stud at the same time. Do you reckon its worth it or should i go for a full aftermarket setup and while im there do the 5 stud?

EDIT: I think it does have a boost controller BUT i cant be 100%. I dont remember seeing one though. Does have an EVC and a turbo timer though. Ive no intention of winding the boost up, at least unless i get used to it so im not bothered about a boost controller.

Z32 brake setup is the way forward, but the only real advantage of the 5 stud conversion is the wider choice of wheels it gives you.

The S14 brakes will of course bolt straight up to the 5 stud hubs, but the conversion is that common its just as easy to get hold of redrilled disks.

The Z32 / S14 4 pots will also only fit under the very late S13 wheels, otherwise you need 16s wink

Std 280mm disks and single pot calipers and sliders are junk. Ive had this setup a very long time ago - with good disks and pads and I used to overheat them on the road, never mind on a track or with some real aggression.

Stu speaks the truth.

The rear disk/caliper setup on a s13 are crap 300zx/skyline calipers bolt stright on but you need the disks drilled to 4 stud and braided hoses to fit the calipers.

For the power the car should run (should see around 300bhp) i better brake setup is a muxt matey.

Best way to learn about a car is on a track/drift day.

....I was talking about the fronts wink

You need to have a pretty serious car to need the Z32s on the rear - the only advantage of the Z32 rears is better calipers and bigger discs - the handbrake mech is almost no different smile

Also - any rear brake setup needs a master cylinder upgrade also to put a little more bias to the back to make use of them wink

I got the car today. Its just evil. Just so much fun too. It just squirms all over the place. Had it sideways a few times and it just feels so much better at it then my previous cars. Probably due to IRS.

Going to book the skid day too tommorow probably.

Your all right about the brakes. Theyre poor at best. Not had to stamp on them properly yet but i hope i never have to. Monies will have to be spent on that department.

I found a KAAZ operation manual in the paperwork too smile

Oh, does anyone know about EVC's? Im scared to touch it, no idea what it does.
