    plus points: theyre rear wheel drive and drift
    negative points: they look like aids

    your previous post said that youd driven loads of them?

    what information is it you need?

    I love 33 skylines I'm on my 3rd now. Its personal taste i like that there a barge an once you get them sliding they just keep going! Theres loads of bits for them and replacement parts are pretty cheap as long as your replacing standard parts.

    If you want an R33 get one. Its your choice however normal people will assume that you have a small willy and touch children.

    Who the fuck wants to be normal?
    Get one, i love mine, you can get good mods for them, only place s bodys have an advantage is on lock mods i.e geomasters. And if you get an s body you'll end up with an rb in it anyway!! However that is just my opinion & its worth noting i am NOT normal & assumption is the mother of all fuck ups!! ;)

    33's are are great starting point. The engines if looked after are bulletproof, cheap to modify, if you chuck a load of China parts on one properly they can cost next to nothing to get to 380bhp and never go wrong.

    As above if you have a 200sx you will want 33 engine and brakes anyway or the gearbox on your SR if your pretty serious so it makes sense starting out to just get a 33. Only negative is rot, heavy, shite on fuel, high insurance.
